Why Chocolate and running?
Because the organizers seriously believe that life is darn short, running will always be hard & my god, chocolate tastes damn good! So if your focus is on the win and not the chocolate, or your knickers are regularly knotty (not "naughty"), come back some other time when you feel like living it up - in the sweetest way possible!
Is any of your chocolate dairy, gluten or peanut free?
Sorry, we can NOT guarantee that any of our chocolate from our suppliers is dairy, gluten or peanut free.
I'm looking for a traditional race, are you it?
No way - there are a gazillion races you can choose from out there so if you're looking for the standard race setup, this is not the race for you! Although this race has traditional distances (5k, 10k), our goal is to make it as fun as possible all in the name of "celebrating the good - and sweet life."
Is the race timed?
Yes, the 5 and 10k are professionally timed by Enfield Timing.
You can check your results via the results button at top right of the page.
Endfield Timing will also send out an email to the runners as they cross the finish line!
How sweet is that?
For sure - men tell us they do The Chocolate Race because they either love chocolate themselves or they love the 800 some women that do the race!
Are baby joggers, roller blades or bikes allowed?
Sorry, due to the nature of the course, baby joggers, roller blades or bikes are NOT allowed.
How do I register?
Please make sure you famliarize yourself with the race by going through this website BEFORE you register. You then have two options to register:
1. Online Registration Link with visa or mastercard (link opens on October 31st)
2. Mail in Registration (download link found at the bottom of this page) - If you do mail in your registration, it must reach us the week BEFORE the race for your name to appear on the Confirmation List. Otherwise, your registration form will be treated as a "day-of" entry.
Form available starting on December 1.
Can I register on the day-of?
Please note that Online registration typically closes on the Wednesday or Thursday before the race. Mail-in registrations will be entered into the Online Database up until one week before race date.
We typically have day-of registration unless an event is sold out.
Registraton status updates will be posted ON THIS PAGE and via Social Media.
NOTE: Late registrations are NOT guaranteed a race swag or medal
Can I switch events?
You can switch events up to the week BEFORE race date by sending us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Race day switches are subject to availability of space in an event.
What happens if I can't race?
Registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable to future years. Due to limitations with insurance, we no longer allow bibs to be transferred from one runner to another. You are most welcome to still pick up your race kit (for the shirt!), and use your bib to enter Chocolate Alley at the Start/Finish starting at ~11 a.m but we will not mail you your race swag if you can not pick up the items.
Can I pickup my friend's registration kit?
Yes. You must give us a letter stating your full name & the names of the persons whose kits you are picking up. Please note that you in turn become responsible for the swag, bib number and timing device of your friends.
The REPLACEMENT cost of a bib and timing device are $20 on race day.
When do I Receive my Winner's Award?
