A foot race may not be your first activity of choice with El Niño dropping temps and some much needed rain. But with hot chocolate waiting at the finish line, why not give it a try?

Hot Chocolate 15K/5K
Sunday, 7:30 a.m.

Golden Gate Park

Dubbed “America’s Sweetest Race,” the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K is the country’s fastest growing race with more than 200 thousand participants since its first race in 2008. The event features two courses for runners to choose from – a 15K (9.3 miles) or a 5K (3.1 miles).

The 5K course will stay within Golden Gate Park near Stow Lake while the 15K will take runners through the park and out along the Pacific Ocean, down Great Highway, and then back into the park for the finish. Once the races conclude, the fun really starts at the post-race party with music, chocolate fondue, family friendly fun and of course hot chocolate!

Muni service on the N Judah, L Taraval, 5 Fulton, 7 Haight/Noriega, 18 46th Avenue, 21 Hayes, 23 Monterey, 28 19th Avenue, 29 Sunset, 31 Balboa, 33 Ashbury/18th Street, 43 Masonic, 44 O’Shaughnessy, and 48 Quintara/24th Street will take you to or get you close to either Golden Gate Park or the Great Highway.

Muni service note: the 18 46th Avenue and 44 O’Shaughnessy will have re-routes while other service routes may see minor delays due to increased ridership.
