This was the THIRD Hot Chocolate event I've signed up for, but the FIRST in which I've actually been able to participate IN-PERSON and in my "hometown"!
The 15k is such an odd distance, but I've run so many 5k's that it's nice to get after something different for a change! For me personally, the swag is what definitely made this event stand out - a really slick jacket, a well-designed medal, as well as the obligatory hot chocolate. You can't go wrong with that combination!
I would definitely recommend the Hot Chocolate series - in-person OR virtual - to anyone looking for a fun event that takes its name seriously!
