Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k Charlotte race as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Yes! I’m going back for a big pot of scrumptious Hot Chocolate! I have signed up for 2019 Hot Chocolate 15K in Charlotte, NC. I ran the race for the first time last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.

My wife Liz traveled with me and we really loved our wee stay in Charlotte over the race weekend. This time Liz has signed up to run as well (5K), and I think it was the race swag that swayed her. 🙂

If you remember the race shirts from my 2018 review, they are some of the best race race shirts I’ve ever received, and this year appears to be no different. Just look at those hoodies… and with the race being moved back into January, we may just need the extra warmth these will provide!


I was really pleased with my pace at the 2018 Hot Chocolate race. I had not participated in a 15k road race before so I didn’t really know what to shoot for.

In 2019 I’m hoping for a big improvement. I will be putting in some serious training between now and then (because of an active race calendar) and I know it’ll pay off come January 2019 when I hit the streets of Charlotte for the second time.


HC armband giveaway

Sign up today and come run with Liz, myself and my fellow BibRave Pros! When you register use code “BRHCCharlotte” to get a trendy Hot Chocolate branded armband to carry your phone. Now, it won’t be as sexy as my fanny pack pictured at the top of this post, but there’s only room for so much style on the course!
