The Party
Join the other runners, walkers and chocolate fiends for a post-race party. Your Finisher Mug will be filled with chocolate fondue, dippable snacks and deliciously decadent hot chocolate. A live DJ will be keeping the party going while attendees pose with giant Hot Chocolate inflatables and kids can join in on the fun at the Kid Zone, stocked with an obstacle course, bounce house and games. Don’t forget to stop by the Merchandise Tent to get your fill of official Hot Chocolate gear.

The Medal
All 15k finishers will receive an official Hot Chocolate STL medal to celebrate their victory. Although it looks like a delicious chocolate bar, don’t try eating it. Each medal features a chocolate bar lookalike wrapped in gold, plated with the Gateway Arch and hung by a shimmering ribbon. You’ll look so stylish.
