Hot Chocolate 15K / 5K in Tampa Announces Exciting Changes to December 2017 Races
Here's the Plan to Keep Runners Comfortable
Most Hot Chocolate races take place in northern climates, so having an event in semi-tropical Tampa means adjustments. I'm happy to announce the 2017 race updates will include:
Sweet Stylish Swag
BONUS! You can add an exclusive #HC15K baseball cap to your collection when you register with code: TAMPAKAREN17. This code is the only way to get this 2017 cap!
Bigger, Better Medal has a Charm/Keychain
This is the biggest, most exciting, addition to the 2017 race! If you’ve run consecutive years in a Hot Chocolate race in any combination of 15K and 5K, in any combo of cities, you’ll be eligible for extra perks as a Legacy Runner!
Legacy Runners receive additional bonus perks:
Important Note: If you do not participate in any Hot Chocolate races for one year after running at least 3 consecutive years you lose your legacy status and must begin again. If this year is your 4th consecutive year you will receive a retroactive 3-year legacy pin.
Preferred Starting Corrals
The Hot Chocolate Race tries to make sure runners are in the correct starting corral. If you’ve ever been stuck behind a row of slow walkers when you want to run, you appreciate the reason for pace specific corrals.
Racers with a documented 11:30 minute pace (or faster) are eligible for a preferred starting corral. You have to submit race results with your registration for placement. If you’re waiting to improve your time in an upcoming race, you can submit your pace proof closer to the race via your registration profile.
If you’re running buddies aren’t as fast as you, you can move to a slower corral to run together, but they can’t move to a faster corral.
Stay Tuned for Final Details
The Tampa course and packet pick up details will be announced closer to the race. Check back here or hotchocolate15K.com/tampa for final details.
