Forty thousand runners packed Grant Park Sunday for the 5th annual Hot Chocolate Race.

The 15K and 5K benefits Ronald McDonald House.

This year, the race added the Hot Chocolate Walk to benefit Little City Foundation, which helps children with autism.

The race had a sweet incentive. At the finish line, participants got, of course, hot chocolate.

Among the runners was Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
