Hot Chocolate 10k + 5k – January 26, 2019 – Isaac Dickson School – Asheville NC


OK, the holidays are over, we’ve made some resolutions (maybe, I don’t really do that), and we need a good race to make January exciting and active. The 2019 Hot Chocolate 10k and 5k are just the trick. So, you’ve done this several times before? Good news – the courses have changed.

The 10k Course»


All 5K/10K participants should plan on finishing the race by 11:00 a.m. to receive an official time. At 11:00 a.m., the traffic controls on the course will cease. Those remaining on the course can still proceed but should travel on sidewalks and stop at all traffic lights. Race officials will remain on the course to monitor and assist all participants until they reach the finish line. There is no time limit for either the 1K Kids Hill climb or the Marshmallow Dash.

Please read carefully:

  • Courses are open to traffic. Repeat. The course is not completely closed to traffic. Please, be mindful of traffic, stay to the right side of the road as much as possible and do not run more than two (2) abreast if you can help it. STAY AWAY FROM THE MIDDLE and run in the direction of traffic.
  • There will be either volunteers or police or both at all intersections. All course volunteers will be wearing orange vests. In case of emergency during the race, please notify the nearest volunteer/APD AND call 911.
  • Finally, it is a winter race, so please keep your eye on the Weather Channel and dress appropriately. If we have a weather emergency, our website’s main page and Facebook page will be updated and emails will go out.

Complimentary on-site BAG CHECK will also be available.
