Fall: the most wonderful time of the year.
Leaves are changing colors. Weather is cooling down. Fall flavors dominate your favorite menu. And, yes, the perfect running weather arrives.
Gourdy's Pumpkin Run celebrates everything that's great about fall! We love traveling the country and celebrating with our fellow runners and walkers. However, we cannot be in every city during this oh so short season. Over the years, we've had many people ask about a virtual option. We introduced it back in 2016 and it's become a fall tradition for so many people ever since! Check out the details:
-Register for the Virtual Run and complete a 5K on your own accord. Simply run or walk 3.1 miles any time between September 1 and November 22.
-We will ship you the official Gourdy's Pumpkin Run lightweight tech hoodie, a race bib, a sealed finisher's medal, and more!
-Please note that you do not have to have your packet prior to running and recording your 5K time! Once registered, you can knock out your 3.1 miles anytime between September 1st and November 22nd!
-After you get done rocking your 3.1 miles, you can submit your time online and download a finisher's badge here.
Be sure to use #gourdyspumpkinrun during your run/walk! We will repost in our Instagram story and select random people for fun prizes from Gourdy!
While the Virtual Run is an amazing, rewarding experience itself, it's even better when you have friends join you on your run/walk! Once you sign up, you will automatically become part of the Pumpkin Support League (or PSL for short!) Refer friends and family to join you to earn rewards throughout the summer and fall. Here's how it works:
1) Sign up for the Virtual Run. Once you complete your registration, you'll receive a unique URL link to share.
2) Share this unique link with friends and family as often as you'd like.
3) Each time someone signs up through your link, you'll accrue one referral. Earn five referrals and get $20 credited back to you. Easy peasy!
Don't stop there. There are more prizes to earn as you continue spreading the word. Here is the referral prize chart:
5 Referrals: $20 of your registration fee credited back
10 Referrals: Exclusive PSL Beanie
15 Referrals: Exclusive PSL Big Comfy Hoodie
20 Referrals: The remainder of your base registration fee credited back
The beanie and Big Comfy Hoodie are designed exclusively for our PSL members (read: you cannot buy these!)
Sign up, get your referral link, and start spreading the pumpkin love!
3.1 miles too easy for you? Add on the Tough Pumpkin option and prepare for an extra challenge! Grab a pumpkin, crush out your 3.1 miles, and earn a second, exclusive Tough Pumpkin medal!
While not a requirement by any means, we always get a ton of photos of our runners with their Tough Pumpkin. Be sure to use #toughpumpkin when you post any Tough Pumpkin photos on social so the entire community can see!
Be sure to use #gourdyspumpkinrun while training and during your Virtual Run! Throughout the spring and summer, we will randomly select people using the hashtag and send them training swag! Follow us on Instagram for more chances to win (@gourdyspumpkinrun)!
After signing up, be sure to download the free Strava training app. We have an awesome club with tons of member encouragement, contests, virtual training runs, and more! Track all of your runs and walks this spring and summer and motivate others to stay active in their training! It's also the perfect app to record your actual Virtual Run so you can submit your time after!
