Welcome to the Asheville Hot Chocolate 5K/10K
"This is a relatively new race that’s grown in popularity quickly, mostly because it’s the flattest course you can run in Asheville. Most of our races are full of hills, but the Hot Chocolate is actually pretty flat."

"Quickly becoming one of North Carolina’s most popular road races, the Hot Chocolate 10k in Asheville is a tasty mid-winter treat for runners at a time when good races are few and far between."
Running blogger, Richard Hefner Race #71 – Hot Chocolate 10k – Asheville, NC – 01/23/10
"It was great to have a 10k to run in January!!! A great way to start the new year."
"This was my first 10K and it could not have been a better one. I am now hooked on racing and want to come back next year to beat this year's time!"
