I’m excited about this race! I ran the 5K last year with my wife, it was her first! Actually, I ran with 5 first timers and had a blast. Sure I shared some of the criticisms of last year’s event.
But earlier this year I heard RAM Racing was revamping the whole event, and my reluctance to sign up again dissipated. The more I heard, the more excited I got. RAM Racing promised to make changes and resolve all the issues people had with last year’s race! Awesome!
And so they did, the Hot Chocolate 15/5K is all new this year! Last year, the race course was on the lake front path which led to a crowded, congested and frustrating course. This year the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K has a brand spanking new course, all on city streets, much like the marathon. I think people will enjoy the wider course. It’ll be less congested, folks will run faster and have a better race day experience.
RAM Racing has always had a reputation for great goodie bags, but last year some people didn’t like the way the Hot Chocolate jackets fit. I admit, I was one of those people. This year there will be a jacket swap at the expo to insure that everyone is happy with what they take home. I like that…a lot! I had a chance to see the jackets this year, and they are sweet! I tried on an XL and it fit! So I’m excited!
And for people who are intimidated by the idea of running a 15K or even a 5K, they are adding a 1.2 mile walk this year benefiting Little City.This is a great opportunity to bring the family together, enjoy the day, help charity and have a lot of chocolate!
Oh yeah, did I mention the chocolate? There will be a lot of chocolate. The Hot Chocolate 15K and 5K will serve up 280,000 gallons of Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate at the post race party!
RAM Racing is super excited about the changes and have hired a new CEC…Chief Executive Chocoholic. Check out the video highlighting this year’s changes!
