This run literally sums me up to a T…I love being active…but then I also love to pig out! Run 5K (3 miles) and be rewarded with chocolate…what more could you want?! I signed up to Hot Chocolate 15K/5K, which as the name suggests has both a 15K (9 miles) and a 5K hot chocolate run. At the moment they have races in 17 cities across the USA (5 being in the Midwest) which are spread out over the ‘winter’ season. I took part in the 5K in Minneapolis, Minnesota!
There are so many different types of fun runs now that are open to people of all ages and abilities, 5k’s (3miles), 10k’s, women’s only, colour runs, mud runs, bubble runs, chocolate runs and 5k inflatable obstacle run! Gung Ho is a ‘touring’ event around the UK, my nearest was located at Brand’s Hatch Racecourse in Kent. I was booked in for the 10.45am ‘wave’ time. Start times were staggered all through the day to stop bottle necks at the inflatables that were approximately every 500 metres along the course. Some obstacles were easier than others!
