Countdown to event
Thank you for running with us! The Pumpkin Run has been a tradition in Half Moon Bay for many years and takes participants along the beautiful Coastal Trail overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We were hopeful to be able to hold our events in person this year, but on the heels of the Pumpkin Festival being canceled, we have had to transition our in-person event to 100% virtual. However, you now have the flexibility to run at a date convenient to you- and you can still take in all the amazing views of the in-person run! All proceeds will benefit Senior Coastsiders, a local non-profit dedicated to providing opportunities, support and resources for older adults living on the coast from Montara to Pescadero and Skyline to the Sea.
What’s in it for you?
In addition to helping local seniors and running along some of the most stunning scenery in the area, all participants will receive an awesome long sleeve race t-shirt!
Virtual Events: October 1-15, 2021: Kid's 1-miler, 5K, 10K and Half Marathon
Virtual participants have the option of running or walking more than one event! In The Pumpkin Run Trifecta, you can run or walk all three events any time during the event period. Not ready for a half-marathon? Try the Pumpkin Run Double Trouble by completing both the 5K and 10K at any point during the event period. Bundles also come with a price break!
Because the events are all virtual, we will not be awarding the top finishers, but participants will still be able to see how they stack up against other finishers by uploading their times via the ASICS Runkeeper App, manually, or using any other run tracker app and will be able to print a Finisher Certificate.
In-Person Events: The in-person events have been cancelled.
For the first time ever, you can register as a team of six or more! Gather your friends, coworkers or family and enjoy a 5% discount on race entry.
Registration is open now through midnight on October 14, 2021.
