About This Activity

TheChocolate5K offers Ghirardelli ® and Choc-Ola ® Goodies as we support Twin Cities Kids In Need Resource Center

The Twin Cities Kids In Need Resource Center (TCKINRC) provides students most in need with free school supplies that make it possible for them to fully participate in classroom learning. Operating as a free store for teachers serving eligible area schools, the TCKINRC provides much needed supplies to their students for learning and excelling in the classroom.

NR Road Racing presents a chocolatey good time.

We are offering you sweet treats to keep you going throughout the 5K. Yes, there will still be water stations, but for those of you with a sweet tooth, you can also have a little piece of joy. Enjoy a family friendly three mile course with your friends, family, and other choc-aholics strangers. Doesn’t matter how fast or old you are; everyone is welcome to participate and join in the fun!

The Chocolate:

All chocolate is compliments of NR Road Racing. It is not mandatory for you take part, but you are more than welcome to have a sweet treat on us! There will be chocolate stations set up along the three mile course and of course, some more at the end!


We’ll supply the Ghirardelli® chocolates along the way.  We’ve also found what may be a blast from the past for some of you…  Remember Choc-ola?  Well it’s back & we have it for you.

After the Race:

When you’re done running, we’ll be still partying and filling up with chocolate. You are invited to hangout and party to the music and have some more (or your first) chocolate on us! Family and friends are always encouraged to join in the party at the end!
