"It's in the shape of a candy bar with a shiny gold wrapper featuring the Rocky Mountains,” says Steve Ginsburg, CEO of RAM Racing and founder of the Hot Chocolate Series. “We liken it to the launch of a new iPhone." In addition to the medal, each finisher gets hot chocolate, snacks for dipping in fondue and entrance to the post-race party.
The race begins and ends in Civic Center Park, at Broadway and Colfax Avenue; the 5K portion starts at 7 a.m., while the 15K begins at 7:50. Registration, $49 for 5K racers and $74 for 15K racers, is available at hotchocolate15k.com/denver.
