Le Chocolat 2018 Half Marathon & 10k/5k Run/Walk

May 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Le Chocolat Half Marathon in Windsor

Running Flat hosts Le Chocolat, a Half Marathon 21K (13.1miles), 10K and 5k Run/Walk, taking place the weekend before Mother’s Day starting and finishing at Windsor’s Riverfront Festival Plaza on Sunday, May 6, 2018.

The only run in the world that gives every registrant wine, lots of chocolate goodies at the end, and firefighters cheering and interacting with runners along the way at the water stations.

In 2018 there will be a lot more chocolate in the Chocolate Zone sponsored by Pelee Island Winery. Participants will also receive the signature limited edition chocolate inspired Finisher’s Medal. NEW this year, participants will receive a sweet custom Le Chocolat Tech Race Shirt.

During the inaugural race organizers gave away a Coach Purse, the second and third year it was wine boxes shaped like a purse. The past few years participants received a special edition wine brand, made in collaboration with Pelee Island Winery, called Running Girl Wine.

It won’t be available for mass consumption until late 2018 in Ontario and will only be available exclusively at the Winery during the summer.

Le Chocolate participants will be the first to get a bottle exclusively from RunningFlat. They can choose either a bottle of Chardonnay (White Wine) or a bottle of Baco Noir Cabernet (Red Wine). Every registrant gets a bottle in the 5K, 10K and 21K events (must be 19 years of age or older to collect at race kit pick up).

The course runs along the gorgeous Windsor waterfront and Riverside drive starting and ending at Festival Plaza.

Stay after the race to enjoy all the shopping and great dining in downtown Windsor.

The event will start at 9:00am rain or shine.

Proceeds to benefit Sparky’s Toy Drive which gathers unopened toys and cash donations for families in need in the Windsor area.
