race, family fun run and holiday festival

December 17, 2016

We’re keeping our legs moving and the cocoa steaming. In other words, we’re getting ready for our third annual Nexton Cocoa Cup 5K. And we hope you’ll join us.

Whether you're tackling the certified 5k or the one-mile family fun run, you’ll enjoy getting out on Nexton’s scenic course design with 2,000 other running fanatics. Then stick around for the post-race party and awards ceremony. Where, naturally, delicious hot cocoa will be served and holiday festivities will abound, hosted and with music by DJ Natty Heavy. Because here in Nexton, we’re all about healthy living and community get-togethers. And chocolate.

All 5K racers will receive a hoodie (yes, a warm, fluffy Nike® hoodie) commemorating the annual event. Plus, a free cocoa mug and other goodies.
