Due to the looming weather, we will be shortening this weekend's 15k course to a 5k to ensure a safe race experience! The race start time for all participants will be 8:10am. All 15k finishers will still receive their 15k medal! Keep in mind travel times may increase due to snow; we suggest you arrive at race site 15-20 minutes earlier than anticipated. Be sure to layer up to stay dry prior to the race and leave a change of clothes at gear check so you can warm up post-race. Many have asked why we were unable delay or postpone the race and unfortunately, that is completely out of our control as municipalities have very tight restrictions on events. We are not able to postpone or delay, as the streets are required to be reopened by a certain time after all events. Please know that we wish we had more flexibility in the actual date and time of the race, but those decisions are controlled by the city itself. So as they say, the show must go on! Please keep an eye on the Hot Chocolate Facebook page and website for updates: https://bit.ly/2GVrpxk

Join the movement that's taken over the racing world. Hot Chocolate 15k/5k is returning to Minneapolis on April 14, 2018! Start and finish in Boom Island Park amongst the biggest chocolate aficionados in Minneapolis. This year, train, race, and celebrate with us all the way to the finish line. We're with you through the season. All Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k participants will receive this awesome jewel-toned pullover! With its soft, technical fabric, this fitted, long-sleeved quarter-zip will be your go-to item for fall and winter runs! Bold colors mean you stand out in dreary weather, and thumb holes help keep your fingers toasty! Plus, a handy zippered chest pocket helps you keep your essentials safe! All 15K finishers will receive an official Hot Chocolate Minneapolis medal to commemorate their awesome achievement. Heads up: while this medal may give you chocolate cravings, it’s actually made from metal alloy. We recommend displaying this sturdy, high-quality medal on a wall for maximum bragging rights. Each medal features a chocolate bar lookalike wrapped in gold, hung by a shimmering Finisher ribbon. This year's medal features a brand-new design, complete with a city-specific key chain! Now you can carry your achievement with you beyond race day! You’ll be handed your medal after crossing the finish line.
