The Walk for Little City is a 2 mile untimed walk that starts after the Hot Chocolate 5k/15k race. Please note that Walk participants will enjoy a different start time, course, and finish line than the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k. Walk for Little City participants will not be able to start/race/finish with 5k/15k participants.
