Chocolate. Sweetly decadent and luxuriously indulgent, chocolate on its own is the stuff of cravings, the ideal edible. Pair it with a crisp November morning run and the breathtaking autumn scenery of Mt. Brighton, however, and you have a perfectly Epic combination that’s utterly impossible to resist: the Hot Cocoa Classic 5K and Marshmallow Mountain Mile Run/Walk.
The Hot Cocoa Classic returns on Saturday, November 5 with two race distances suited for adults, children, and chocoholics alike! That’s right… you don’t need your skis to do a run at Mt. Brighton!
The Hot Cocoa Classic 5K — Run or walk the scenic grounds of the Mt. Brighton Golf Course on a mostly paved course with a downhill mountain finish.
The Marshmallow Mountain Mile — Run or walk the grassy terrain of Mt. Brighton up and back down to complete this Mountain Challenge!
The Double Shot of Cocoa — Indulge yourself and run or walk both races.
Once you’ve finished your race, come enjoy our Post-Race Fireside Party inside the Ore Creek Grill. Our friends at Tri-Covery will be waiting for you for post-race stretching and massage to complete your morning at Mt. Brighton. Awards will be presented indoors as well… no standing out in the cold!
The Hot Cocoa Classic 5K and Marshmallow Mountain Mile is part of the Pure Michigan FITness Series of events and is endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health, and Sports.
