2017 Chocolate Tour
August 5, 2017
Join us for the Seventh Annual Chocolate Tour to support cancer research at Penn State University. There is something for everyone!

With rest stops every mile, runners and walkers will enjoy local chocolate. Cyclists will enjoy rides through the beautiful countryside of central Pennsylvania with its Amish farms, wooded areas, and covered bridges while visiting areas surrounding the local historic chocolate towns of Hershey (home of Hershey’s chocolate factory), Elizabethtown (home of M&M/Mars chocolate factory), and Lititz (home of Wilbur Chocolate Company). Cyclists will taste local chocolate at the rest stops. All participants will be provided with a meal at the end of their event.
