'We are capitalizing on the fact that people are nuts,' said Bill Roe, an originator of the 2009 5K Resolution Run and Polar Bear Dive for Club Northwest, a runners club founded in Seattle in 1972. 'We were looking for ways to reinvigorate the race,' Roe said. 'Attendance was down to around 300, so we added a polar-bear plunge. People said we were crazy.'
But that seemed to be just the right idea."
