Welcome to Chocolate City USA, home of Nestle and the city of Burlington Wisconsin.
Join us for a beautiful run along the Fox River. The Chocoholic 5K/10K are chip timed and you will be rewarded with chocolate at the finish line.... lots of chocolate! Just want to take your sweet time? You can run, jog or walk your way through the course.
The Chocoholic 5K/10K has NOT cancelled.
Due to the current pandemic, only the Chocolate Fest portion has cancelled for 2020. We have not made a decision if we will convert the Chocoholic 5K/10K run/walk to a virtual 5k (REMOTE RUN) or keep as is. We will make that determination at a later date.
Should we change our format to our REMOTE RUNNERS program you will still be able to run or walk the route. The REMOTE RUNNERS program allows runners or walkers to self-time. You will be able to run at your pace, your time, your date. INSTRUCTIONS will be posted at a later date if needed. LEARN MORE HERE: www.REMOTERUNNERS.com
