will run for chocolate

let's run together

The 2022/2023 Hot Chocolate Run is back! Join the chocolate movement that’s taking over the country in 19 cities, plus virtually! This race has it all—multiple distances, premium swag, and a post-race chocolate experience like none other. For the third year in a row, we’re proud to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Finisher Mug

What would a CHOCOLATE race be without the CHOCOLATE? Every finisher gets their own finisher mug, complete with chocolate fondue, dippables, and, of course, our famous HOT CHOCOLATE!


Come back for more and earn more! Legacy runners who participate in 3, 5, or 10 consecutive years get extra goodies! Spoiler alert: you can now run any distance in any city and qualify!


As the official charity partner, the Hot Chocolate Run Series will support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. We can all (run) stand together to help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
