Don’t end up like Augustus. Get off your marshmallow, throw on some sneakers and head to Dallas Fair Park for a “world of pure imagination”. This Saturday, February 9th, the Dallas Hot Chocolate Run will unite lovers of chocolate from across the metroplex for a 15K and 5K run benefiting the Ronald McDonald House program. “America’s Sweetest Race” is sweeping the nation and that includes North Texas. While doing your Chocolate Run you may even spot an Oompa Loompa on the course.
The 5K is scheduled to start at 7:30am and the 15K will commence at 8:10am. All runners/upbeat walkers are required to stay at a 15 minute mile pace or faster (like 4 miles per hour) for the Hot Chocolate Race, so choose to walk briskly or stay on the sidelines with your cup of hot cocoa.
The Hot Chocolate Expo will be located inside the Automobile Building and registered runners can pick up their race packets Thursday 2/7 (11a-8p) and Friday 2/8 (11a-8p). Not telling what’s inside the Chocolatey Expo, besides goodie bags and race packets but it’s sure to be a treat! and probably plenty more that our greedy Augustus would love to get his chubby hands on. This is the only location where race packets will be distributed. Parking here is $10.
Included in your goodie bags are some fancy-looking hoodies that you’ll want to keep forever. If the “chocolate” part of this Dallas event wasn’t enough to get you signed on, the sweater is definitely an added benefit. Get registered here!
