Brown Family Park at Nexton


We’re keeping our legs moving and the cocoa steaming. In other words, we’re getting ready for our sixth annual
Nexton Cocoa Cup 5K. 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. Naturally, delicious hot cocoa will be served and holiday festivities will abound, including a Holiday Costume Contest and an appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus. Because here in Nexton, we’re all about healthy living and community get-togethers. And chocolate.


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