Super fun, and the course is nice and flat. Packet pick up was Saturday, and was pretty easy to find. There were a hand full of vendors, not to exciting. The shirt design was cool, but the sizing was a bit off. But race morning defiantly made up for that. Parking was easy (small charge) and they had music going at the start line to get everyone pumped up. The course was decent, very flat fast course. I LOVED LOVED LOVED that they had mariachi bands and kiddos playing along the last mile of the race. The medals were worth the miles for sure. I recommend this race to families, it’s a fun one!

This race became a favorite the first year I did it back in 2015. Mom and I have done 3 hot chocolate races since. This year was equally awesome as expected! Made it to the expo on Saturday and was able to navigate it easily. The volunteers guided us to where we needed to go and the vendors were informative and friendly. The swag bag is one of the best parts. I never wear my race shirt on race day, but this year it was chilly and I broke the rules and sported my cozy cute zip up! (See pic). Parking on race day was pretty seamless, but I do recommend getting there at least an hour early to find a spot. The race started on time and the start corrals were easy to navigate. The course is pretty challenging for a 5k, but the views and the chocolate aid station make it worth it. We had to walk a little far to get to our hot chocolate afterwards, but again. No biggie. Totally worth it! The mug was full of sweet goodies! I’ll see you next year Horn Chocolate SF!

I will definitely be returning to this race next year. On the starter face day I got there early and it was super easy to get to the start line and the view was amazing to watch the sunrise come up over the water. Going into this race I thought that there would be elevation given it’s in San Francisco but the course is completely flat and super easy to run. I have to say the best part of the race is getting the giant metal and taking the photos with the fireman that or waiting for you at the finish line.

The rock ‘n’ roll race seriously is never a letdown if you ask me. They put on an amazing expo with so many vendors in things to see. The race itself is so beautiful you get to run alongside the ocean at the start and get to experience the Golden Gate bridge up close and personal the one word of advice I would give you is make sure you train for the hills because they will take you out if you don’t. Lol

So sad that this race is no longer happening. But despite that I am still excited to share my experience running it. I drove down the night before and stayed in a hotel and still struggles with parking because San Francisco has terrible parking everywhere so I don’t think that that was necessarily a part of the race. The expo was amazing there were plenty a photo apps and different booths. The actual race itself gets you super amped up before the start and has amazing eight stations throughout the entire race and get this right before you finish on mile 12 or so they give you a wake to clean up your face before you go to the finish line I can’t say that about any of the other 9/2 marathons I’ve ran since this one. The actual race itself gets you super amped up before the start and has amazing aid stations throughout the entire race and get this right before you finish on mile 12 or so they give you a wait to clean up your face before you go to the finish line I can’t say that about any of the other 9 1/2 marathons I’ve ran since this one. Hands-down still one of my favorite races.
