UPDATE: Although I still love racing the Hot Chocolate race in Chicago, Ram Racing has decided to end the Ambassador program. If you are going to use the free swag code, CHILISA19, do so before 4/15/19!
I am excited to share that I was selected as a Ram Racing Ambassador for the 2019 Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k race in Chicago, IL! Ever wonder about all that chocolate served at the race? Check out some fun facts created by the Denver race! For example, they are gluten-free and nut-free (which makes me happy as I can’t have nuts or peanut butter) and 2,000 pounds of melted chocolate is used at each race. Wow! That’s a lot of chocolate.
I was first told to run this race because of the swag (although I had no idea what that meant at the time)! For this race, athletes receive a running jacket of some type (I have pullovers and zip-ups so far), chocolate on the race course, and a finisher mug filled with deliciousness such as hot chocolate, chocolate fondue with many dipping food options, and 15k finishers receive a finisher’s medal. In addition, if you use my promo code CHILISA19, you will be able to pick up additional free swag during packet pick-up. In the past, there have been neck gaiters, running arm band for your phone, and a hat. This year it is a vacuum sealed water bottle! So, go register at https://www.hotchocolate15k.com/chicago for the Chicago race (which is 11/3/19) and use promo code CHILISA19 to reserve your free additional swag item. See you at the chocolate line!
