Worth the Trip: Hot Chocolate 15K Race

The Feast/Leah Mennies

Come out for the sweetest race through Downtown Philadelphia, ending with, well, lots of chocolate!

The Hot Chocolate 15K will be held Saturday, April 4 at Eakins Oval on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. You have the option running the 5K -- which begins at 7:15 a.m., or taking on a challenge with the 15K  -- which begins at 8 a.m.

The course leads you through all of Philly’s most famous attractions with rest stations and support along the way.

Upon crossing the finish line, runners will receive their official Hot Chocolate Philadelphia medal along with a finisher's mug filled with chocolate fondue, sweet snacks and decadent hot chocolate!

Following the race, runners, walkers and chocolate aficionados can join in on the post-race party and continue the celebration. 

Live music, hot chocolate inflatables and a kid zone are among some of the fun activities to be expected at the daylong event. 

And don’t forget to taste chocolate samples at the race!

Registration is $49 for the 5K and $74 for the 15K until the race day.
