 Following the success of last year we’re thrilled to return with The Chocolate 5k Obstacle Rush! Inspired by our Award Winning Chocolate 5k, you’ll have to work harder for your chocolate this time!

Whether you’re a regular runner, looking to get fit or you’ll just do anything for chocolate this event is sure to leave you feeling challenged and rewarded in equal measure! Featuring 8 fun and exciting obstacles, an enjoyable 5k route and plenty of chocolatey rewards what more could you ask for?

Our 5k route takes you around scenic Cofton Park where you'll be met by 8 different obstacles which will test your dedication in the quest for chocolate. On finishing the course, runners will receive a chocolate goody bag, commemorative medal and a gooey chocolate pot.

Runners can arrive for the event from 9.30am, with the chase for chocolate starting in waves from 10.30am (we'll be in touch to confirm what wave you'll be in). There'll also be plenty going on before and after your challenge including music, street food and a charity raffle so do make a day of it and bring your cheering squad along to support you. 

We recommend this event for ages 12+ however we can accept younger runners if they feel capable. Obstacles can be bypassed if needed. Please note that all participants under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times.

This is a sponsored run and by signing up you are pledging to raise funds for the hospice by gathering sponsorship. We’re hoping to raise £28,000 this year, there isn’t a minimum sponsorship amount, we just ask that you raise as much as you can. Your registration fee covers the cost of hosting the event, but it is your sponsorship money that makes the difference to our patients and their families. If each runner aimed to raise £50 in sponsorship we would be well on our way to achieving this goal!
