Fall is here and so is The Great Pumpkin Run!

Get ready to tackle 3.1 miles at Froehlich's Farm & Garden Center! Participants will enjoy a trail run that covers the gorgeous grounds of the farm. Traverse meadows, dash through the pumpkin patch, and wind through the corn 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! 

Packet pick-up is available the day before the race from 4-7PM at the farm. Race day packet pick-up is available from 7-9AM. If you do not attend packet pick-up the night before, you should expect a line on race morning, so please arrive early!

Please arrive early as packet pick-up lines tend to get long about an hour prior to race start.
