Hot Chocolate Race takes over Golden Gate Park

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - Hundreds of runners are braving the chilly temperatures for the Allstate Hot Chocolate Race in San Francisco and it's all for a good cause.

On Sunday morning at 7:20 a.m. the 5K and 15K races kicked off in Golden Gate Park.

The 15K, which is 9.3 miles, goes along The Great Highway before coming back to the park.

About 10,000 runners are expected to participate in the race that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and will receive chocolatey treats along the way.

Streets will be closed for the race and Muni will reroute the 18 and 44 routes until streets are clear.

Back in 2008, the inaugural race ran through the streets of Chicago and since then, more than 200,000 runners have participated. It has become the fastest growing race in the country.
