I was excited to hear that I would be able to do a Christmas race. Each year I participate in a Turkey Trot but before now there wasn't any good option for a Christmas race. I really like the movie Elf so I'm glad to be able to get swag and a medal that are Elf themed. I was impressed with the communication with Ram Racing, there was a delay in shipping medals due to covid so they shipped out the swag without the medal and then followed up with a fast shipping with the medal by itself. They could have just waited to save money but they did the right thing and made sure we at least got our bib, Jacket and beanie for race day. I was happy to see that my medal was received the day before Christmas so I could run and get the medal afterwards. Definitely suggest any of their virtual races as they have some pretty cool ones and the swag is always awesome.

This was my four year running Hot Chocolate Race but first time running it virtual. I will say it was so nice to get the swag items prior to the race. I have done several others this year but had to wait until after I send my results in. My swag showed up weeks in advance and set it out as a reminder of what I was training for. I really liked how they included goodies along with two hot chocolate packets two mini chocolates. I have always loved the jacket and this year wasn't any different. The hood comes off so it's super nice on the days where it is not needed. Last but not lease the medal, it is always super cool and this year there was a hidden compartment where you can put your chocolate. I will definitely do this race again and hoping for an in person.

This year I wanted to participate in the in person race but because of covid races became virtual. I was thankful to the MCM for making a great virtual that was very affordable. I was happy to get my gear before I raced (I raced the last week before times were due) and have many different goodies in the bag such as a mask and a honey stinger waffle. I'm impressed with the quality of the swag and the great communication that was received from MCM. No matter what happens next year I'll participate even if it is virtual.

This was the first year that I participated in this race so it was hard to know what experience I would receive. I was beyond happy with the experience I had along with the awesome swag. The packet was received before race day and included a lot of quality/awesome swag. The shirt was of good quality, designed well and fit perfectly. I'm always worried about size and if it would fit well and it did. They also included a buff, bib and a drawstring bag. I was happy to see a buff especially with everything going on. Last but not least a heavy duty medal. Some races cheap out with the medal but this was heavy and of good quality. I'm happy to be able to put this medal on my medal rack and be proud of my accomplishment.

I came out to this race due to the Olympic Trials so might as well race. I really liked how each races paired with each other. I was a little disappointed in the race expo shop as there wasn't much items. I would think it would have been a opportunity for the organizers to make a lot of money which I would have loved to spend. The expo overall was good, I think they could have had more vendors. There were some awesome activity and special sessions just for the olympic trials. The morning of the race I would have liked if they had more port a johns in some areas, they were all of the area but some where hard to get to before the race. I was a little disappointed in the corrals as they were chaotic and hard to find the pacers. The race was amazing. It was one of the most challenging course but the people were amazing and helped me reach my goal. The medal was really cool and had some olympic vibes. I would definitely suggest coming as the weather was perfect and city was amazing.
