2021 Virtual Polar Plunge Run

To Benefit Special Olympics Indiana



A brand new way to be Freezin’ for a Reason this year, Special Olympics Indiana invites you to be a part of its signature fundraiser by competing remotely in the first annual Polar Plunge Run! Register here at Its Your Race (no other registration required) and complete a 5k or 10k anywhere and anytime during the 2021 Polar Plunge season to #EarnYourWings this winter and to make a splash for Special Olympics athletes in your community and beyond.


When you sign up, you’ll be asked to pay a $25 registration fee, for which you’ll be rewarded with an official #EarnedMyWings decal to display on your car or anywhere else you like. Take your fundraising to the next level by raising an additional $50 ($75 total) and you’ll earn a custom #EarnedMyWings race medal to add to your trophy case!

IMPORTANT: HOW TO PARTICIPATE AND SUBMIT YOUR TIME FOR THE VIRTUAL RUN

Please download the IYR Virtual Mobile App on App Store or Google Play and read the instructions here:

This app will allow you to run your virtual race and automatically track your pace, distance and overall time. The app will recognize the race distance that you registered for and will automatically stop your session at the appropriate distance (eg 3.1 miles for a 5K virtual race) and send your results in. It's the closest thing you can get to running a real race!

***MAKE SURE YOU LOGIN USING THE SAME EMAIL YOU REGISTERED WITH. ALSO, MAKE SURE YOUR LOCATION SETTINGS ARE ON AND ALWAYS TURNED ON AND ACCESSIBLE BY THE APP***

If you do not wish to use the IYR Virtual mobile app for your virtual race, please see instructions for manually entering your finish time at the bottom of this page: https://www.itsyourrace.com/pc/iyrvirtualhowto

NOTES

Because the Polar Plunge is a fundraiser, there will be no refunds issued for any reason. All funds raised directly benefit more than 18,000 Special Olympics athletes across Indiana, giving them the means to train locally and compete at state level in a number of Olympic-type sports.
