I am currently organising a 5km Santa Dash taking place in November 2011 and we have usually given out Hot Chocolate to the runners. From a runners perspective would you rather receive a bottle of water or energy drink instead?
Thank you in anticipation for your reply
Large G&T, ta!
But seriously.... if you go with hot chocolate, how are you going to ensure that it is hot for all the runners?

Well I think water should be a pre-requisite anyway, but if you're gonna spend money on anything else, hot chocolate sounds spot-on for that time of year. More satisfying than an energy drink and would probably make the race more memorable.
Baileys, Drambuie, Jamaican rum... I think these would all go well in hot chocolate. In fact I reckon it's up there with Guinness and McDonald's chocolate milkshake as being a very versatile mixer for such goodies. Where is this Santa Run?
I'd go with the rum too - there's nothing like a cheeky tipple during the day when its cold to cheer you up! Assuming though that you won't be able to serve alcohol then I'd give the hot chocolate the thumbs up!
One thing though - a Santa dash in November?? Santa will be far too busy wrapping my pressies..
We had hot choc after our ladies 10K on Halloween last year. It was very good for putting into the insulated cups we got as mementos
As the race HQ is village hall it was very easy to provide hot water
