About

The Hot Chocolate 15/5k, coined as America’s Sweetest Race, is brought to you by RAM Racing.  Established in 2008, the inaugural Hot Chocolate 15/5k ran through the streets of Chicago, Illinois. Since its inception, over 200,000 participants have ran for chocolate, making it the fastest growing race series in the nation!

Each Hot Chocolate 15/5k race features both a 15k (9.3miles) and 5k (3.1miles) distance and all runners are encouraged to join the fun! Participants receive an award winning goodie bag, which they collect at the expo along with their race packet.

The chocolate really begins to flow at the Post Race Party where runners enjoy music, a family friendly kid-zone (complete with bounce houses and games) and a finisher’s mugs filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue and tasty dippable treats!

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is the official charity partner of the Hot Chocolate 15/5k series. The RMHC program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families and children facing a serious medical crisis so they can stay close by their hospital at little or no cost. For more information on our charity partner visit our city specific charity pages.
