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!
