2018 Asheville Hot Chocolate 10K Results

Did you run the Hot Chocolate 10K in Asheville yesterday?  If not, you missed a great run.  It was also the first year they offered a 5K.  The weather was perfect, in my opinion, and the route had only slightly changed from the year before.  If you'd like to see how you did, you can see the age group results for both races at the Right on Time Productions website. Right on Time Productions did a great job by the way.  Chips on the race bibs activated as you crossed the starting line and stopped when you crossed the finish line.  You'll notice on the results there's a gun time and chip time.

The Hot Chocolate 10K website as of today, still only had the 2017 Results, but I suspect they'll update it pretty soon.  I'm hoping one or the other site adds the overall results.  I'm not positive but I think they announced on race day that they had 800 runners for the 10K but I may have heard them wrong.

All in all, a great race with a lot of great sponsors and I can't wait to run it again next year!
