The Great Pumpkin Run Chicago
The Great Pumpkin Run is a 5K run for the entire family. Celebrating all that is Autumnal, the race takes place on a farm, and runners are given apple cider and a pumpkin to take home!
A chip timed race, you can run for fun, for time or as a Tough Pumpkin. To be a Tough Pumpkin, you'll need to carry a pumpkin weighing up to 10 pounds with you while you run and cross the finish line with it intact (you get to keep the pumpkin)!
If you can't make the day, you can run in the Virtual event and send in your time for a finisher's medal.
This is a great family event because kids are allowed to participate as well. Unfortunately, no dogs allowed. Sorry, pooches.
The "Tough Pumpkin" option makes the event harder. Add a pumpkin up to ten pounds heavy to your load and you'll get a special Tough Pumpkin price and you get to keep the pumpkin, too!
The Great Pumpkin Run is a trail run encompassing everything great about Fall. Start your morning with a run through trails, open fields, bright paths and a corn maze. Finish it off with a glass of crisp apple cider and plenty of Fall activities for you, the kids and the family,
