Yay! More hot chocolate and running!

If you’re training for the new Love Run Half Marathon on March 30th, you might as well sign up for the new chip-timed Hot Chocolate 15K hitting Philly exactly one week later. The 9.3-mile race—which also has a 5K option, if you prefer—is planned for April 6, 2014, although a course has not yet been released. Runners will get a pretty sweet looking running fleece and will be able to participate in a chocolate-themed (think: hot chocolate, fondue, the works) post-race party.

As with most races, registration fees are operating on a tier system: The earlier you sign up, the bigger the discount. Here’s the fee schedule for both the 15K and 5K:

Hot Chocolate 15K
$64 through February 2nd
$69 through March 9th
$72 until race day or sell out

Hot Chocolate 5K
$40 through February 2nd
$45 through March 9th
$50 until race day or sell out

Want a little extra swag? Use the promo code PHILLYMUG4 to get a free travel mug in your goodie bag at packet pickup. Presumably, you’ll be able to fill said mug with helping after helping of delicious hot cocoa. Mmmmm.
