We highly encourage carpooling, using public transportation to the event. There will be over 15,000 participants, volunteers, and spectators on site race morning. Please plan for heavy traffic and allow ample time to check your gear and get into your corral.
Hot Chocolate 15k/5k Philadelphia will begin and end near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just a short walk from Philadelphia City Center. If you prefer not to walk, we highly recommend using public transportation on race day.
Philadelphia’s mass transit system, SEPTA, offers two subway lines, regional rail service to and from the surrounding suburbs, and bus service throughout the city. Several SEPTA bus lines serve the Museum area.
Please check with SEPTA at (215) 580-7800 or www.septa.org for information about schedules, drop-off and pick-up locations, and route detours.
