Hot Chocolate 5K/15K Race Preview

Posted on Jan 20, 2018 under Race | No Comment

Hot Chocolate 15K/5K RunSimilar to the Fit Foodie 5K, the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K is a run that I’ve wanted to do for the longest time. I still remember seeing them advertise their run at a race expo many years ago. They had huge signs and offered cool perks like a race jacket and hot chocolate after the race. There was another race that I ran before that offered Irish hot chocolate, which was a nice treat after running a race. The Hot Chocolate 15K/5K has grown since then, now hosting races 18 different cities, including one in Mexico City!

I will be running the race hosted in my hometown San Diego. The thing I like about established races is that they know what they are doing. They’ve experienced every issue or misstep before and have learned from it. After the first few years, if a race director does not learn from their mistakes, runners won’t keep coming back.

The race starts and finishes downtown and will take you through different parts of Balboa Park. Looking at the elevation chart, there are a few hills you may need to prepare for. But I’ve ran so many local races in Point Loma and Liberty Station recently, getting to run around Downtown and Balboa Park is a a nice change.

If you’re interested in participating in the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K, visit their website and choose a city that you’re interested in.

Good luck and enjoy!!
