Gourdy's Pumpkin Run: Texas

Sat October 16, 2021 Directions



The Jersey Barnyard (between Austin and Houston)
3117 TX-159
La Grange, TX 78945


Fall is coming and so is Gourdy's Pumpkin Run! 

Get some fresh country air and get ready to tackle 3.1 miles at The Jersey Barnyard! Participants will enjoy a trail run that covers the gorgeous grounds of the dairy farm. Traverse meadows, dash through the woods, and meander past autumn cornfields before celebrating everything that's great about fall at the finish line!

Be sure to invite friends and create a team of 4+, as each team member will save $5. Pumpkins, apple cider, and friends on the farm. It doesn't get much better than that! 

After a brief hiatus, Gourdy is very ready to continue the fall tradition in 2021. We have thoughtful options in place to ensure you can celebrate the season with us safely and with peace of mind. Check them out on our blog here.


-Entry to the 5K run or walk (all ages and abilities welcome)
-2021 Lightweight Tech Hoodie, perfect for fall running weather
-2021 finisher's medal
-Commemorative race bib with chip timing
-Cup of apple cider at the finish line
-Free professional race photos
-Small pumpkin to take home
-Free parking


Waves are limited in size and will close as they fill up. Sign up now to secure your spot!


One of the most popular options when signing up is getting friends to join you at the race! Create or join a team with 4+ friends and each team member will save $5! Here's how it works:

1) When this first person goes to sign up, they can choose to create a team.

2) That person is the designated team captain. He or she will enter a group name (get creative) and password.  The team captain can continue with his or her registration.

3) Once the team captain has signed up, they can share the team name and password so others can join. Please note that the team captain does not have to sign everyone up. Rather, each member can sign up and join the team to pay for their own registration, all while still receiving $5 off!

Easy peasy!
