2019 H.O.T.T. CincoK

A 5K race for our Emporia Cinco de Mayo festival!

The addition of the HOTT CincoK to the downtown Emporia Cinco de Mayo festival is a continuation of our pursuit to provide educational opportunities for the Hispanic youth of Emporia. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to support this mission. In addition to supporting a good cause, we aim to provide you a 5k running experience unlike any other.

This truly is “Nacho Average Race!” All runners will receive a custom HOTT CincoK t-shirt, a fully stocked aid station (complete with hot tamale candies, water, GU Energy products, various snacks, as well as on-course entertainment!), a custom finisher sombrero to all who cross the finish line, and nachos for all participants! Beyond that, you will be finishing on Emporia’s famed Commercial Street, crossing the line at the HOTT Cinco de Mayo downtown block party. The festival will be in full swing with tons of activities and spectators to welcome you in!
