Hot Chocolate 15/5k

On Saturday, February 9th, more than 10,000 runners and walkers will participate in America’s Sweetest Race, the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k.The race starts at 7:30 a.m. at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park. Race organizers are expecting this race to be even bigger than last year given that so many runners have chocolate on their brains this time of year.

“The course is pretty flat and straight, giving runners an opportunity to get excellent times, and when you finish you are greeted with a chocolate square and great music which leads to the post race party with loads of goodies,” says race director Brandon Presern.

The goodies include a finisher’s mug with hot chocolate in the center, chocolate fondue surrounded by marshmallows, pretzels, banana and Rice Krispy’s, to name a few of the treats.

Ronald McDonald House of Dallas is the race beneficiary and the National Charity Partner for the race series nationwide. Every night, hundreds of moms, dads, brothers and sisters stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill or injured children. The Ronald McDonald House maintains a caring homelike atmosphere and provides a place where families receive strength and stability from others who share similar circumstances.

Registration is open. The 15k is $68, and the 5k is $48. All participants will receive a men’s or women’s hooded sweatshirt and a Finisher’s Mug filled with chocolate treats. Visit http://www.HotChocolate15k.com  to sign up today.
