Need a little motivation to lace up your running shoes this season? Would some hot chocolate get you ready to go for a run? These are some of the hot cocoa runs happening across the country in the coming weeks and months so you can start planning.
Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K / 5K - These are the most expansive runs in the country, with events planned in Scottsdale, San Francisco, Nashville, Denver, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle, Dallas, and Tampa over the next few months. And if the promise of a cup of hot chocolate isn’t enough for you, Allstate assures “there will be sweet stations along the course including marshmallows, chocolate chips and M&Ms to enjoy along your way.”
10th Annual Hot Cocoa Run & Dog Walk - At this event in New Rochelle, New York, you’ve got a lot of options, including running or walking a 5K, walking a mile, or taking your dog on either of the two. All races benefit MAC Angels and ALS and all participants get post-race hot cocoa that’s brewed in a cast iron cauldron over an open fire.
15th Annual Seaford Wellness Hot Chocolate 5K Run - Not only do you get hot cocoa after this Seaford, New York race, you get bagels when you’re finished, too!
CAP10K - This annual 10K in Austin, Texas invites you to “run, walk, skip, or stroll” your way through and at the end, you get hot cocoa and other fun snacks.
Main Street Marshfield Hot Chocolate 5K Run / Walk - At Marshfield, Wisconsin’s annual run and walk, people get dressed up like Santa or a reindeer, or something else festive and have a lot of fun. There’s music played the whole way throughout the race as well as lovely Christmas lights to see along the route, and don’t forget the hot chocolate.
