Lace up your trainers and take part in Birmingham’s tastiest fun run in April to raise money for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice. With chocolate stations along the route and plenty of volunteers to reward you with chocolate treats as you make your way around the beautiful Sandwell Valley Country Park, the Chocolate 5K promises to be a brilliant event for all the family.
Want even more chocolate? Double your reward by tackling the new 10k route that has been added for 2020.
After crossing the finish line, all participants will receive a stunning medal… and a scrumptious little gooey pot of chocolate!
Runners can arrive for the event from 9.30am where there will be lots of games and activities before the chocolate run begins.
Starting times are staggered, with the 10k beginning at 10.30am and the 5k at 11.00am.
Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice provides end of life care and support to individuals and their families, carers and loved ones across Birmingham and Sandwell. The Chocolate 5k and 10k is a sponsored run – a registration fee applies and by signing up you are pledging to raise funds for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice by gathering your own sponsorship. While there isn’t a minimum sponsorship amount, the hospice asks that you raise as much as possible. There will also be Chocolate 5k sun visors available for purchase to wear at the event or keep as a memento of the day.
