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!

Run Pick of the Month - Jewel of the Valley

 Run along the Yakima Greenway Trail - May 11, 2024.

This race is part of the Run Super Series, it features a 5k, 10k, half, and full marathon.

One of the things we like is the terrain on the course. The run follows the mostly flat Yakima Greenway, however, you'll get full views of wineries, crops, and undulating terrain unique to the region. 

Expect well supported out and back courses that are USATF certified (BQ eligible). Every participant will end up with a finisher medal and custom race shirt and a neck gaiter.
