The reward for finishing this 5k is a hot toddy made with Jack Daniel's whiskey.

The Jack Daniel's Hot Toddy 5k returns to Philadelphia for a second year. The race kicks off Dec. 17 at 10:30 a.m. from Xfinity Live! 

Even though the race is sponsored in part by a whiskey brand, all ages can register for the winter event. Being of legal drinking age adds to the fun, though.

Participants who are 21-plus will be rewarded for running with one free hot toddy made with a choice of Jack Daniel's whiskey. Choices include Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey or Jack Daniel's Original No 7.

That's not the only swag runners will receive at the Hot Toddy 5k, however. 

Here are all the perks:

•Official Jack Daniel's Hot Toddy 5k long-sleeved race shirt
•Official Jack Daniel's Hot Toddy 5k insulated mug
•One free hot toddy
•Exclusive drink specials for those with bibs at the Xfinity Live! post-race party
•Pre-race stretch led by Sweat Fitness
•MANNA (Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) fruit bag assembly station where runners can give back to the community

The 3.1-mile race starts and finishes at Xfinity Live! and includes a loop around Citizens Bank Park and Wells Fargo Center.
