- 3 miles/5K, 9 miles/15K, Virtual Race
- Road Race
I originally signed up for the in-person event and was very much looking forward to my first Hot Chocolate race. I chose the 15K distance, which is becoming one of my favorite race distances. The race organizers did a great job of keeping us up to date and enthusiastic about the race, despite the need for it to have gone virtual. Communication was always clear and it often felt like we were leading up to 'the real thing'.
As promised, my race swag and medal arrived about 2 weeks before the official race date. The jacket is so nice - very high quality, and I love the removable zip-off hood. I will definitely be wearing this one for a long time. Lots of sweet treats were included in the goodie bag, and the race medal is just so cool! It has a hidden compartment held shut by a magnet. It took me a while to realize it opened, but when I finally figured it out, I found another sweet treat inside.
I will definitely be signing up for this race next year. Here's hoping we'll all be back to in-person races soon!
