Coined as “America’s Sweetest Race,” the Hot Chocolate 15/5k is making its way to Arizona in early December!
Each Hot Chocolate 15/5k race features both a 15k (9.3miles) and 5k (3.1miles) distance and all runners are encouraged to join the fun! Participants receive an award-winning goodie bag, which they collect at the expo along with their race packet.
The chocolate really begins to flow at the Post Race Party where runners enjoy music, a family friendly kid-zone (complete with bounce houses and games), and a finisher’s mug filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue, and tasty dippable treats!
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is the official charity partner of the Hot Chocolate 15/5k series. The RMHC program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families and children facing a serious medical crisis so they can stay close by their hospital at little or no cost. [The proceeds from this event go toward the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Phoenix, but you can peruse our non-profit spotlight for more information about the RMHC here in Tucson…the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona].
