The First Annual Pumpkin Festival 5k Trail Run will take place on September 30th at 9:00 a.m. at the Pumpkin Park.

The Kid’s Fun Run (ages 12 and under) starts at 8:45 AM.

The Pumpkin Festival 5k Trail Run will start and finish at the historic covered bridge. The Pumpkin 5k Trail Run will cover 85 acres of the pumpkin park and the course will cover a variety of terrain conditions. Runners will navigate asphalt, gravel and grass on the 5k course. The course will parallel the park,  taking runners though scenic fields and shady tree lined paths. This is a flat course and should provide runners with little difficulty.

Packet pick-up will begin at 7:00 a.m. at the pumpkin park at a designated shelter. There is ample free parking for both spectator and  participant. There will be a fun run for children less than twelve years of age. Participants will receive a commemorative shirt and gift for participating in the Pumpkin Festival 5k Trail Run.
