Why You Should Run the 2017 St. Louis Hot Chocolate Race


Last year I ran the 2016 Hot Chocolate 5K in St. Louis, Missouri. It was my first time participating in a Hot Chocolate race and it was such a blast. This year I'm attempting the 15K (wish me luck, my return to running postpartum has been rough). I really enjoyed last year's race so I thought I would tell you all why you should run it this year!

1. CHOCOLATE. I mean, duh. This race isn't called the "Hot Chocolate" race for nothing. Expect a total chocolate overload. Seriously.

2. ACCESIBILITY. The race was super accessible considering it's in downtown St. Louis. The parking was well organized (though there was a lack of information about that on the website) and they did a great job corralling so many people.

3. SWAG. The zip-up hoodies from last year were my favorite and I wear mine all the time!

Something to remember: there is no packet pickup on race morning, so be sure to have your packet mailed, or make arrangements to attend the expo.
