It is back in 2021!!!

2018 was bitterly cold, 2019 was warm and inviting.....2020 was a bit windy....what will 2021 be like?!

The Almost-Famous New Year's Day 5k Hot Chocolate Run is organized to help raise money for The Minds in Motion children’s museum (and also to have a ton of fun on January 1st). All proceeds from the event will go toward the building of a children’s museum in Salisbury!

The 5k will be set on the trails around The Salisbury Park and The Zoo trails close to the river. There are some roots and some rocks along the course, so be prepared. The majority of the race is composed of crushed gravel trails, creating a fast scenic race.

We will have an aid station with water and Gatorade at mile 1.5ish and we will have water and delicious hot chocolate at the end. The course will be very well marked and measured. There will be overall and age group awards. Those who sign up before December 14th will be guaranteed a T-Shirt.

Bring the entire family out and be ready to run, have fun and sip on some hot chocolate as we celebrate the beginning of 2021! It has to be better than this year!

If you have any questions, reach out to the race director:

HUGE MUGS to the winners!

** In the event that the Pandemic hinders the Hot Chocolate 5k to physically be held at the Salisbury Park, we will automatically convert the race to a virtual run. Stay tune for more details as the time gets closer.
