Race Information

The Hot Chocolate Run series is a national series of chocolate-themed races in major cities across the United States. These are big-city races - with courses to match.

Established in 2008, the inaugural Hot Chocolate 15k/5k ran through the streets of Chicago, Illinois. Since its inception, hundreds of thousands have run for chocolate - making it the fastest-growing race series in the nation.

Each Hot Chocolate race features a 15k (9.3miles) and a 5k (3.1miles), with many cities also featuring a 10k (6.2 miles). Participants receive an award-winning goodie bag with each registration.

The chocolate flows at the post-race party, and runners enjoy music, a finisher's mug filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue, and tasty dippable treats!

The La Jolla Half Marathon and 5K, happening on May 18, 2024, are some of San Diego California’s most picturesque running races. 

Why do we like these runs? Here are a few reasons!

From start to finish these races offer runners a chance to experience the coast like never before. You get miles of sun-drenched coast, an inviting ocean, and perfect weather pretty much anytime of the year. Expect gorgeous views from Del Mar to the La Jolla Shores.

Get ready to soak up breathtaking views of waves crashing on the shoreline, surfers in the water, and thousands of inspired runners on the road. In our humble opinion, this is one of the best half marathon and 5K races in California.
