Hot Chocolate 15k - Philadelphia
They have a 15k and 5k course, that start at different times. The 15k course takes you down MLK and back to finish in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum. The course is nothing special, and I have run it many times before. However, this was by far the most organized race I have ever been a part of. When you get to the expo to pick up your bib....they just grab a number (any number), and print out a label with your info on it to put it on the bib. So much more efficient to do it this way. Also, they had photographers at the end to take your picture (for free, no charge) as you cross the finish line. Not only that, but they actually have a camera to show a video of you crossing too. (First time I had ever seen that). On top of everything else, they had an awesome finisher's medal, and a really cool hot chocolate bowl, filled with hot chocolate and marshmallows at the finish. Along with the cool sweatshirt/vest we got for the run, by far the best SWAG ever.
