If you’re looking for a challenge with a difference then join our Hospice for Birmingham’s tastiest event – The Chocolate 5k™.

Check out our Chocolate 5k video to see what's in store... 

Our 5k route takes you around scenic Cannon Hill Park. Runners will approach chocolate stations along the way offering a variety of branded chocolate treats and plenty of water to keep you hydrated. On finishing the course, runners will receive a commemorative medal and a gooey post-run chocolate pot which is sure to leave you feeling sweet.

All runners will receive their very own exclusive Chocolate 5k™ bag to keep!

Runners can arrive for the event from 12.00pm and start the chase for chocolate at 13.00pm. As well as the fun run we will have lots of family fun games and activities available for you to take part in and additional refreshments will be available for you to purchase.

There isn’t a minimum sponsorship amount, we just ask that you raise as much as you can.
