I just signed up for the San Francisco Hot Chocolate 15k on 1/7/18! I have always wanted to run one of these Hot Chocolate races; I hear such great things about the entire event weekend and I am so excited to be signed up already!
I know you may be thinking, “Big deal, that’s like 8 months away.” But guys, these races SELL OUT, and they sell out quick! Each time I have wanted to do a Hot Chocolate run in my area, they are sold out weeks, even months in advance. And they sell out for good reason; not only do they give you hot chocolate at the finish line, but the medals are nice and big, and chocolate related. Plus, your registration also comes with a nice running jacket!
This course begins and ends in the beautiful Golden Gate Park and has 2 distances; the 5k and the 15k. I was worried about the hills in San Francisco, but this course has no higher than a 350 ft elevation gain! January in San Francisco is just lovely, and you can easily make a weekend out of it; exploring all of the amazing sights and tours the city has to offer.
If you decide to do this run, please feel free to use my promo code for a free Hot Chocolate hat and I will see you there! Code : BRHCSF18
