Enjoy the best November has to offer runners in this fall-themed race celebrating the season of perfect running weather, pumpkins, colorful leaves and good friends as you run through gently rolling, well maintained, cross country trails. The Great Pumpkin 5K Trail Run benefits GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a North Carolina-based non profit organization that provides an 8-week after-school curriculum to help coaches train children for a 5K while educating them on fitness, nutrition, and character development. GO FAR will receive 100% of proceeds. 

  • Parking located at Wesleyan Christian Academy athletics campus.
  • Bib pickup will be morning of the race. Stop by the medical tent to have your temperature checked and then head over to pick up your race bib.
