ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - On Sunday runners laced up their sneakers and hit the streets of downtown St. Louis as part of the Hot Chocolate 5 and 15k run. The event hosted by Ram Racing is said to be the sweetest race in America.

The weather during the day hovered between 50 to 60 degrees. The temperatures were stark contrast to the wind chilled teen temperatures recorded during the race in 2013.

Runners started at Market Street and made their way to Chestnut, each of them doing their part to raise money for Ronald McDonald House charities.

The charity run has become one of the most popular races in the Midwest and continues to grow across the country. So far more than 15 cities participate and more are expected in the future.
