I LOVE the Hot Chocolate race series, and the virtual races are no different. I know it's been tough for races to pivot to a virtual experience, but Hot Chocolate does a phenomenal job trying to recreate as much of the race experience as they can for their virtual runners.
First, the swag. I think the HC series easily has some of the best swag around. Regardless of where I'm running the race, I look forward to snagging the new HC hoodie every year!
Second, the community. Even though we can't run the race in person, Hot Chocolate creates a great pre-race community through the regular newsletters and facebook group.
Third, the goodies! I love that HC sends you all the snacks and goodies to put together your very own post-race celebration. I love mixing up a big batch of the hot chocolate before I go out for my run so it's hot and ready for me as soon as I finish.
It's been a challenge to stay motivated over the last year but the Hot Chocolate series puts on a great event for runners to look forward to, AND there are so many more opportunities to participate in their other race locations via the virtual option. Find the best one for you!
