What is The Great American Candy Run??

As a Showpiece to The Festival of Chocolate, The Inaugural Great American Candy Run® is an interactive sweets-themed obstacle course created to bring out the kid in all of us. There is no better sugar rush than to come face to face with a Giant Cookie Pit, hurdle through a peppermint patch or dive through giant Dizzy Donuts. Families and Individuals will run, walk, jump, dig, stack, crawl and launch their way through a confection adventure.

The Great American Candy run welcomes chocolate lovers of all ages. Children under 5 must run with an adult.
