Hot Chocolate 15k/5k Legacy Experience
RAM Racing is proud to announce the Hot Chocolate Legacy Experience! The Legacy Experience is extended to runners joining us for the 2017-2018 season who have registered for three or more Hot Chocolate races (of either 15k or 5k distance) in the same city in consecutive years, or will complete their third consecutive year of Hot Chocolate running this upcoming season.
Your Legacy status will be represented by a commemorative pin representing:
3 consecutive years (bronze tier)
5 consecutive years (silver tier)
10 consecutive years (gold tier)
More than just a pin, legacy runners will also receive bonus perks:
3 year- legacy novelty bib, legacy beanie and 3-year legacy medal
5 year- legacy novelty bib, legacy beanie, commemorative photo frame, and 5-year legacy medal
10 year- legacy novelty bib, legacy beanie, commemorative frame including your 10-year legacy medal, a full VIP race-day experience, Hot Chocolate Legacy embroidered goodie bag, AND a free entry to the 2018-2019 season Hot Chocolate 15k/5k race of your choice!*
• 5k/15k legacy runners will receive their legacy swag at the Legacy Experience Booth at the Expo.**
• 5 and 10 year legacies: don't forget to visit the Legacy Experience booth at the Expo to have your photo taken! It's the perfect souvenir to include in your commemorative photo frame!
• If you do not participate in a Hot Chocolate race in your city for one year after running at least three consecutive years you lose your legacy status and must begin again.
Runners participating in their 4th or 6-9th year legacy race will receive the initial legacy benefits mentioned (legacy novelty bib, medal and pin, etc).
‘Legacy’ will be applied nationwide to qualifying participants, extending retroactively. The 2017-2018 season must include your 3rd, 5th, or beyond consecutive race to be considered. Distance does not matter, but to qualify and to keep your legacy status you must participate in the same city each year. Do you have a history with us? See your past registrations here!
Failure to participate in a Hot Chocolate race (of either distance) for one full race season will result in loss of Legacy status. The only exception that will be made is if one registers for an event in which the event date changes or must be cancelled. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis when one registers for an event and the event date changes afterwards.
*Hot Chocolate is not responsible for the cost of travel, lodging or other travel expenses.
**We encourage all Legacy participants to join us at the Expo, to celebrate their achievements! If you are unable to attend the Expo, we will arrange to have your Legacy items available for pickup on race day. You must pick up Legacy items either at the Expo, or on race day; no Legacy items will be mailed after the race.
