This past weekend Wolfpack was the benefiting sponsor for Runtastic’s Frigid 5k & Penguin Plunge. It’s a fun, annual event with a 5k along parts of the Provo River Trail near Utah Lake.
A handful of athletes and family members from our Wolfpack comp team signed up to race and plunge.
We were warned before the race started that there were a few icy spots on the course. Our athletes were prepared. No pushing hard for PRs today.
What surprised us was a very heavy snowfall for a large portion of the race. Even made it hard to see!
Overall we’re so proud of how our Wolfpack did at this fun race. There were about 700 participants and here’s how our Pack did:
Adria F. 1st place women overall
Maya B. 3rd place women overall
Emmy F. 1st place women 1-10
Bethany M. 2nd place women 1-10
Gabby B. 3rd place women 1-10
Sydney G. 5th place women 1-10
Bridget S. 1st place women 11-14
Cheyenne P. 2nd place women 11-14
Lulu M. 3rd place women 11-14
Coach Rachel 3rd place women 40-44
Revin B. 1st place men 1-10
Zach B. 5th place men 1-10
Matthew W. 8th place men 1-10
Gabe M. 9th place men 1-10
Kenny B. 3rd place men 11-14
Tommy W. 5th place men 11-14
Adam M. 7th place men 11-14

Afterwards, race officials cut away some of the ice on Utah Lake so participants can jump in for the Penguin Plunge!! A few of our brave athletes jumped in!
Thank you, Runtastic Events for such an awesome morning and thank you for having us as the benefiting charity.
