The Sweetest Race: My Hershey 10K Experience

Hi all - Reilly Fies here from the Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Communications Team. This past Saturday I ran the Hershey 10K Race - part of the Chocolate Town Challenges. It was a blast! Rarely do you get the opportunity to run past Giant Center, down Hershey Park Drive past Catherine Hall and The Hotel Hershey, then INTO Hersheypark and past all the rides, including the new Hershey Triple Tower. Finishing by running into Hersheypark Staduim was a rush. My main goal was to beat my time from when I ran the racein 2012. I completed the Hershey 10K in 58 minutes, 50 seconds. About 30 seconds faster than my 2012 time! I snapped photos along the way and wanted to share with all of you. Apologies in advance - some of my photos are a little crooked. It's hard to run and snap pics at the same time! :) 

The next race in the Chocolate Town Challenges is the Hershey Half Marathon on Sunday, October 15, 2017. Registration opens on May 1. Mark your calendar!
