Your Weekend Planner to the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k

Weekend Planner


In our opinion, there is no greater motivator than sweet decadent chocolate. Join your fellow chocolate aficionados at this year’s Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k on Sunday, November 3rd in Grant Park. When your efforts are rewarded in chocolate, it adds a little pep to your step. 

If you sign up for this event, it does not matter if you are planning to run or walk, there will be chocolate in your future. Can’t wait until the finish line? Not a problem, this event offers sweet stations along the course, and their delicious dark chocolate is both gluten and nut-free.

This event does not need to be solely about the chocolate; however, the course will take you through the city’s biggest attractions and, to keep those feet moving to the finish line, there will be entertainment provided along the way.

Getting to Grant Park from the SSL is easy. Just take westbound train #600 to Millennium Station. Head east toward N Michigan Ave. Turn right onto N Michigan Ave and head toward Monroe St. Turn left onto Monroe St and head to S Columbus Dr. The event should be ahead of you.

Start Times

Wave 1 (ALL 15k Runners and 5k Runners in Corrals A-J): 7:00 am

Wave 2 (5k Runners in Corrals K-U): 7:50 am

2 Mile Walk Start Time: 9:00 am (Note: Start time is tentative, the walk will start after the last Wave 2 corral has cleared the start line)
