Past Meetup

San Diego Hot Chocolate 15/5K

Details

Do you like running? Do you like chocolate? If the answer to both these questions is "yes," then come join us for one tasty time down at Petco Park. We will be doing the 5K part of the race which starts at 6:45am but since packet pickup is that same day and lineup begins at 6:15am, we will meet earlier at the tables. A 15min mile is required for the race, which equates to serious power walking/4mph. If you cannot keep this pace, please do not sign up. While still considered a fun run, it is timed and the organizers have made it clear that they cannot guarantee course support. I run at a 10:30/mile pace which is nowhere near competitive but comfortable for me.

Registration is $48.00 with a $3.25 fee and will benefit the Ronald McDonald House. You will receive a sweatshirt and the best part, a big mug at the finish line with a cup of hot cocoa, dipping chocolate, and various goodies to dip in the chocolate. Since this is a public event, husbands and boyfriends are invited to participate.

Even though there was no way to create a team on the website, we can consider coordinating as one. If people are interested in this, please comment below and we can schedule a mini-meeting beforehand to discuss what to wear. Registration and full information can be found here:

Even if you don't complete the program before race day, this is a good place to start and help you know what you're getting into.

Lastly, this is the app I used personally for C25K:
