The best goodie bags in running, free instantaneous race photos and scrumptious post-race treats are just three reasons you’ll want to sign up for RAM Racing’s 6th annual Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Race in Scottsdale.
The popular USATF-certified event hits the Valley Of The Sun starting at Salt River Fields on December 3. Whether you’re a serious or recreational runner, you’ll score Hot Chocolate’s award-winning and always impressive race swag (this time it’s a quarter-zip long sleeve technical jacket). Then, after crossing the finish line where a city specific medal and key chain await you, racers are rewarded with a mug loaded with fondue and hot chocolate, pretzels, Rice Krispie Treats, cookie straws and bananas. More than 4,000 pounds of melted chocolate are prepared for each race. There are even “sweet stations” on the course that provide delicious mid-race snacks.
Registration for the Hot Chocolate event is open until Thursday, November 30, 2017. Cost for the 5K is begins at $49.00 while the extended distance fee starts $74.00.
