Join us for the Ninth Annual Chocolate Tour to support cancer research at Penn State University. Individuals or teams are welcome to walk, run or bike-there is something for everyone! Choose from the Chocolate Tour 5K or 10K Walk, the Chocolate Tour 5K or 10K Run/Race and the Chocolate Tour Cycling Events (10, 30, 50, 75 and 100 miles). With rest stops every mile, runners and walkers will enjoy local chocolate. Participants are also invited to raise money individually or as a team to further support the cause. Top fundraisers will be recognized at the event (Note: Donations made prior to 5 p.m. on Friday, August 2 will be counted in these tallies).
Cyclists will enjoy rides through the beautiful countryside of central Pennsylvania with its Amish farms, wooded areas, and covered bridges while visiting areas surrounding the local historic chocolate towns of Hershey (home of Hershey’s chocolate factory), Elizabethtown (home of M&M/Mars chocolate factory), and Lititz (home of Wilbur Chocolate Company). Cyclists will taste local chocolate at the rest stops.
ALL participants will be provided with a meal at the end of their event.
