Race Preview: 2020 Charlie’s Chocolate 5K and 10K Trail Run (Ashland)

Did you know that 2 of the things that many of you hold dear have been combined to produce Charlie’s Chocolate 5K and 10K Trail Run? That’s right – Running and Chocolate are what this event is all about! Held as part of the 16th annual Oregon Chocolate Festival, Charlie’s Chocolate Run will be held at Emigrant Lake Recreation Area. Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character for this delicious event and finishers will take home a Charlie’s Chocolate Bar from Branson’s Chocolate. The top 3 male and female will win a “splendid chocolate delight.” There will also be awards for best costume and age group awards.

In addition to the 5K and 10K options, there is also a 1 mile Fun Run/Kids race, open to kids of all ages.

Now, don’t just run, grab that chocolate bar, and head home. Add $15-$20 to your race fee and get a 1 or 2 day Chocolate Festival pass to indulge the chocolate lover in you. This is sure to be a delicious weekend complete with a run to wrap it up perfectly.
