Fall is here and so is Gourdy's Pumpkin Run!
Get some fresh country air and get ready to tackle 3.1 miles at Uncle John's Cider Mill. Participants will enjoy a trail run that covers the gorgeous grounds of the orchard. Traverse meadows, dash through the apple-filled orchard, and meander past autumn cornfields before celebrating everything that's great about fall at the finish line!
Be sure to invite friends and create a team of 4+, as each team member will save $5. Pumpkins, apple cider, and friends on the farm. It doesn't get much better than that!
After a brief hiatus, Gourdy is very ready to continue the fall tradition in 2021. We have thoughtful options in place to ensure you can celebrate the season with us safely and with peace of mind. Check them out on our blog here.
-Entry to the 5K run or walk (all ages and abilities welcome)
-2021 Lightweight Tech Hoodie, perfect for fall running weather
-2021 finisher's medal
-Commemorative race bib with chip timing
-Cup of apple cider at the finish line
-Free professional race photos
-Small pumpkin to take home
One of the most popular options when signing up is getting friends to join you at the race! Create or join a team with 4+ friends and each team member will save $5! Here's how it works:
1) When this first person goes to sign up, they can choose to create a team.
2) That person is the designated team captain. He or she will enter a group name (get creative) and password. The team captain can continue with his or her registration.
3) Once the team captain has signed up, they can share the team name and password so others can join. Please note that the team captain does not have to sign everyone up. Rather, each member can sign up and join the team to pay for their own registration, all while still receiving $5 off!
Want to prepare for the Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run with a purpose? Want to support girls by giving them a
safe space where they can grow in self-confidence, practice empathy for others, work together as a
team, and find strength and connection with each other despite their differences? You are invited to
set-up a fundraiser for Girls on the Run and join a movement of goal-getters who are raising critically
needed funds for girls across the country. You don’t need to be an athlete—and you don’t need to finish
first. All you need to do is show up for yourself and the girls in your community. Can she count on you?
