It's the starting gun for our virtual race! Each of the past 11 years we grew and learned from the prior year. And then the 2020 pandemic brought us back to ground zero and we are learning all over again how to do this event! We appreciate your patience while we establish the virtual edition of the Hot Cocoa Run & Dog Walk.
As usual, the race starts on this, the first Saturday of December. And usually that's when it ends. But not this year: It's been extended virtually through the last Saturday in December, which is the 26th. Register, and then run/walk until December 26. Think of it: You can work off all the holiday treats and test drive all the great running gifts that Santa brings you!
All net proceeds benefit Alzheimer's Association, Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS), and a small portion will go to Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabiliation (SNARR). You are not required to fundraise, but we encourage you to do so, and you will be rewarded with the incentives outlined below (photos in our store). We are now integrated with Facebook fundraising too, so raise money there!
All registrants, upon request, will receive a finisher medal and/or a lighted slapstick for great visibility on walks/runs worn on your arm or on dog's leg!
Rules: Anytime between 8:30 am 12/5 and midnight 12/26, run or walk the distance you registered for and then submit your time to the event. You are encouraged to upload photos including your furry four-legged friends!! Be sure to include the hashtag #hotcocoarun.
We will post results before the new year and hopefully by 12/28!!
