Hot Chocolate 15K San Francisco is just days ago now. I can’t wait!! It will be my first sponsored race as a BibRave Pro. I get to wear my orange shirt loud and proud.
I checked on the weather it is expected to be cloudy and chilly with a high of 57 degrees F and low of 46. At least there’s no expected rain. Fingers crossed. I’ll need to wear layers to stay warm throughout the race. I always struggle with this aspect of planning for a race. I don’t want to overdo it and I also don’t want to look like a human popsicle. What is your strategy? Let me know.
I’ll post my flat runner on Instagram once I finalize the details of my outfit. Not following me, click here to follow me.
I’m picking up my swag on Saturday. We’re driving into the city (San Francisco) to do the expo and then heading home. For whatever reason, locals in San Jose and the Bay Area call San Francisco “the city”.
There will be no bibs being handed out on race day so you will need to either visit the expo on Friday from 12-7pm or Saturday 10-6pm.
You will need to plan where you are going to park ahead of time. Parking in San Francisco is both expensive and hard to get. You can purchase a shuttle pass ahead of time. Note that the price for the shuttle is per person.
In order to find out what your corral placement is, you will need to log into the RAM Racing website. Click on the log in link on the top right corner of the Hot Chocolate 15K SF website. Once in your profile, click on view registration. Under category, you will see the race you are registered for the 5K or the 15K and your corral placement. It will be a letter of the alphabet from A-N. Make note of this letter because you will need to know what it is in order to stand in the right corral on race day.
