What would a CHOCOLATE race be without the CHOCOLATE? Every finisher gets their own finisher mug, complete with chocolate fondue, dippables, and, of course, our famous HOT CHOCOLATE!



As the official charity partner, the Hot Chocolate Run Series will support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. We can all (run) stand together to help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.


Come back for more and earn more! Legacy runners who participate in 3, 5, or 10 consecutive years get extra goodies! Spoiler alert: you can now run any distance in any city (including virtual) and qualify!


Volunteering allows you to participate in the race in a meaningful way while providing crucial support for our participants and staff. 


Our Corporate Wellness Program is great for companies, run clubs, schools, charities, families, and friends. 

The 2021/2022 Hot Chocolate Run Race season is coming back LIVE starting in October! Join the chocolate movement that’s taking over the country in 22 cities (plus a virtual option)! This race has it all – two distances, premium swag, and a post-race chocolate experience like none other. For the second year in a row, we’re proud to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
