8 Reasons Why You Should Run the Hot Chocolate Race Series



Happy Day to you!

I leave tomorrow for San Francisco to stay with my sister, and run the Hot Chocolate 15K race.


I can’t tell you how excited I am!


I have been wanting to run this race for a while now, so it’s great to be able to cross another race off of my bucket list.





This race series has so many perks, it’s nuts.


In celebration of my race this weekend, I thought it would be fun to recap all of the reasons why you should run this race too!


1.  The race swag. As you can see below, the finishers mug is HUGE and filled with a fantastic assortment of goodies. On top of that, runners get a finishers jacket and a cool hat.

2.  The race bling. Finishers receive a medal that looks like a chocolate bar! However, don’t let your post-race runger get the best of you… it isn’t an actual bar of chocolate, so don’t attempt to eat it.

3.  Sweet Aid Stations. Each race has 4 different candy aid stations complete with: M&Ms, Chocolate Marshmallows, Chocolate Chips and Strawberry Marshmallows. I am in heaven!

4.  Two race distance options. The race offers both a 5k and a 15K! In my opinion, both distances are pretty achievable to most runners.

5. Will Run for Chocolate. Come on people, who doesn’t love an entire race that is centered around chocolate!

6. It’s just plain fun. From the cool expo, to the sweet stations and the finishers party- the entire race is a blast!

7.  Get some cool “extras”. Thanks to my special friends at BibRave.com I have special codes for a lot of the Hot Chocolate races in 2016.

Each code gives a free Hot Chocolate headwrap!
Dallas – 2/6/16 – BibRaveDAL
Nashville – 2/13/16 – BibRaveNASH
Vegas – 2/28/16 – BibRaveLV
Seattle – 3/6/16 – BibRaveSEA
San Diego – 3/20/16 – BibRaveSD
Philly – 4/2/16 – BibRavePHI
Minneapolis – 4/16/16 – BibRaveMIN

8. Hydrate with Nuun. As a Nuun Ambassador for 2016, I have to mention that Nuun is a sponsor of this race. So, while you are working off the chocolate you have/will consume before, during and after the race, you can hydrate with Nuun!

Talking about this race has made me both very hungry and extremely excited about running this race!

Stay tuned next week for my race review and recap.
