The Pumpkin Run has been a traditional part of the Pumpkin Festival for many years and takes participants along the beautiful Coastal Trail overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The 5k and 10k races are both sanctioned runs while the Pumpkin Power 5K Obstacle Challenge adds obstacle stations and activities along the trail. The Kid's Fun Run is about 1/4 mile long and every child receives a goodie bag (appropriate for ages 8 and below). All participants will have access to a light breakfast, a t-shirt and a pumpkin. 

The run starts and finishes approximately 3 blocks from the Pumpkin Festival which boasts over 300 artisans and amazing food and music.


BE SURE TO SCROLL TO THE APPROPRIATE REGISTRATION BUTTON! SENIORS AND CHILDREN UNDER 9 ARE SEPARATE CATEGORIES AND ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS.


No refunds or transfers after September 6, 2018. Event is on rain or shine.
