The Great Pumpkin Race is a fun filled, low cost 5k through the Buckalew family farm and their wild and crazy Halloween themed corn maze. The course is a flat, traditional cross-country course along dirt roads and through the corn maze. Runners of all abilities, from those competing in their first 5k, to those looking for a PR, will enjoy the course. We’re excited to offer prizes in multiple age groups making this race a truly family-friendly event. Thanks to The Running Shop and Tedy’s Team for providing prizes. Age groups will be 11 and under, 12-14, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-45, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84 and 85+ Top three overall and Master's winner will be taken out of age group awards. All participants are eligible for raffle prizes. Thanks to the Buckelew family, the entry fee into Buckelew Farms is waived so that you may purchase your own pumpkin. All those that are in the park by race time (7:30a) will not be charged for entry. Those arriving after race start will need to enter when the farm opens and a pay a fee.
