Fall: the most wonderful time of the year.
Leaves are changing colors. Weather is cooling down. Fall flavors dominate your favorite menu. And, yes, the perfect running weather arrives.
The Great Pumpkin Run celebrates everything that's great about fall! We love traveling the country and celebrating with our fellow runners and walkers. However, we cannot be in every city during this oh so short season. We have had many people in the past ask if there is a virtual option. Well, it's finally here! Check out the details:
-Register for the Virtual option and complete a 5K on your own accord. Simply run or walk 3.1 miles any time between September 1 and November 11.
-We will ship you the official The Great Pumpkin Run lightweight tech hoodie and a race bib (expect to receive mid-October)
-After you complete your 3.1 miles, submit your time here.
-Once we receive your time, we will record it and update the list. We will begin shipping medals once the virtual sign up period ends on November 11th!
-Please note that you do not have to have your packet prior to running and recording your 5K time! Once registered, you can knock out your 3.1 miles if you want to while you wait for your packet to arrive in mid-October!
Be sure to use #greatpumpkinrun during your run/walk! Throughout the fall, we will be choosing random winners for cool prizes!
-Official entry to the virtual race
-2018 lightweight tech hoodie
-2018 virtual race bib
-2018 finisher's medal
-Shipping of all items
-Chance to win $500 if you use the free Strava app to record your run/walk (see details below)
While the virtual race is an amazing experience itself, it's even better when you have friends join you on your run/walk! Once you sign up, you will automatically become part of the Pumpkin Support League! Refer friends and family to join you to earn awesome rewards throughout the summer and fall. Here's how it works:
1) Sign up for the race. Once you complete your registration, you'll receive a unique URL link to share.
2) Share this unique link with friends and family.
3) Each time someone signs up through your link, you'll accrue a referral. Earn five referrals and get $20 credited back to you. Easy peasy!
Don't stop there. You can earn other various rewards the more people you refer to the race!
After signing up for the race, be sure to download the free Strava training app. We have an awesome club with tons of member encouragement, contests, virtual training runs, and more! Track all of your runs and walks this summer and motivate others to stay active in their training! It's also the perfect app to record your actual virtual run so you can submit your time after!
Once downloaded, be sure to join the official Challenge in the Strava app, as you will earn an exclusive digital badge for your Strava collection. Beyond earning the digital badge, you could also win $500! Download Strava for free and join the Challenge here.
