The Great Pumpkin Virtual 5k/10k

Sat October 31, 2020
Description

We're so excited to have our first Great Pumpkin Virtual 5k/10k.

October is the perfect time of year to be running, especially as we prepare our bodies for the festivities of Thanksgiving dinner! You have the choice between running/walking a 5k or a 10k! This race is VIRTUAL, which means you can run anywhere you are! The race will open on Saturday, October 31st at 12:00 AM and close at 11:59 PM. So, for 24 hours you pick the time and the route, and run or walk! You will receive a medal, a race bib, and a short sleeved t-shirt!

Location

Your route is anywhere you'd like! Want to do it on a trail? Great! On a treadmill? Awesome! Around your neighborhood? Neat! Just make sure you know where you're going to celebrate your victory afterward (hot chocolate?? doughnuts?? pumpkin pie???)!

What you'll get!
  • Entry into the Great Pumpkin Virtual 5k (or) 10k
  • Buttery soft commemorative t-shirt to always remember your race
  • A numbered race bib (optional to wear, of course!)
  • A finisher's medal to proudly wear while you take a selfie after your race
Why are we doing it?

We are so fortunate to be able to afford food for our families, but not everyone is as fortunate. We want to try and give a little back by donating to Feeding America.

"In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. We work to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, we also seek to help the people we serve to build a path to a brighter, food-secure future."

We will be donating some of our proceeds from every registration fee. If you'd like to donate more, click on the donate button! Thank you!

Hashtag it out!

We'd love to see your pictures from your race day! Please use #thegreatpumpkinvirtual5kand10k (Phew! That's a mouthful!) on your social media posts so that we can show our love!

Race Results
