The Ivoryton Pumpkin Chase is a 5K Road/Trail Race and a Kiddie Pumpkin Fun Run to benefit Ivoryton Library.

The Ivoryton Pumpkin Chase takes place in peak foliage season of southern New England on October 21. The course begins along North Main Street for approximately ½ mile before turning left down Falls River Drive. At the one mile mark the course enters the Falls River Preserve for a 1.1 mile trail loop that meanders along the Falls River. The trail is double track for about ½ mile before it turns into  hilly and rocky single track. Care must be taken on the trail due to the presence some jagged rocks and roots. The trail can be slick in wet conditions.  

Registration is only available online, you may sign up at anytime until a few minutes before the start on race day. Participants taking part in the race on October 21 need to check in to collect their bib; please allow plenty of time to do this before the 9:00 am start.
