Hot Chocolate 15/5k

Race Location & Start Time

Golden Gate Park Music Concourse - San Francisco, CA

5K Start Time: 7:30am
15K Start Time: 8:20am

Packet Pick-Up

Packet pick up will be held prior to the event at the Hot Chocolate Runner Expo.

Course Information

Please note that a 15 minute mile pace or faster is required for both the 5k and 15k race distances. A 15 min. mile pace is roughly four miles per hour, equivalent to a very brisk walk.

If you fall below this pace, the race organizers can no longer guarantee course support. Aid Stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will begin to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to either move up onto the sidewalk or require you to be transported further up on course to catch up to the 15 min. per mile group.

Start Corrals

Hot Chocolate 15/5k has designated corrals for all registered participants. Your bib will be marked with your assigned corral. Placement is determined by the pace per mile entered during the registration process.

Gear Check

Gear Check is available on race day for all registered participants between 6:00am – 11:30am. Bags must be 12″ X 18″ or smaller. Please have the gear check tab from your race bib adhered to your bag prior to arriving at the gear check lines. RAM Racing is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
