What’s Included

Hot Chocolate Goodie Bag

All Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k participants will receive a super-sweet goodie bag to commemorate your race experience! The 2018-19 Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k goodie bag features a full-zip jacket with a hood–in a stunning merlot for women and black for men! Wear this jacket with pride through the season!

15k Finisher Medal

All 15k finishers will receive an official Hot Chocolate Chicago medal to commemorate their awesome achievement. Heads up: while this medal may give you chocolate cravings, it’s actually made from metal alloy. We recommend displaying this sturdy, high-quality medal on a wall for maximum bragging rights. Each medal features a chocolate bar lookalike wrapped in gold, hung by a shimmering Finisher ribbon.

Course Details

The Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k Chicago course highlights the city’s biggest attractions. We hold our races to the highest quality standards, from start to finish, course design and accuracy, emergency medical plans that exceed industry standards all in the name of your safety. Along those lines, all Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k events have a USATF-certified course with a distance that has been certified for accuracy. Please note that although we’ll try our best to avoid it, the race date, course and start time are subject to change.


Millennium Parking Garages

The garages can be accessed as follows: Millennium Park Garage and Millennium Lakeside Garage can be accessed via eastbound Lower Randolph Street to southbound Columbus Drive.

Soldier Field Parking

Parking is available in Soldier Field’s North Parking Garage (normal rates apply race day). Please note: all cars parking in the Soldier Field North Parking Garage must be parked by 7am so as to not be impacted by course road closures. This garage opens at 5am.

Packet Mailing

The sweet life is an easy life! Simplify your race experience by adding packet mailing to your Hot Chocolate registration.

Look forward to your packet on your doorstep about five days before the race. Your packet includes your race day swag, bib, and reusable drawstring bag that’s super handy on race day. If you opt for packet mailing, there is no requirement to attend Expo. Of course, we highly recommend checking it out as an introduction to your race weekend– chocolate samples, race gear, vendors, oh my! Packet mailing is a convenient option for suburb-dwellers as well as those with tight schedules.

To add packet mailing to an existing race registration, you may do so by logging into your account and adding it to each registration you’d like to have mailed out. We close packet mailing three weeks before the race, so be sure to sign up early!

If you’d like to swap your goodie bag out for another size, please attend one of the Expo dates and visit the swap booth. Since this feature is available on a first-come first-serve basis, we cannot guarantee the availability of your desired size. Please keep in mind that there will be no race day or post-race goodie bag swap.
