RunTimeRaces is hosting the 2nd Annual Great Pumpkin Run 4K - Harvest Celebration in conjunction with Spirit Truth Ministries. This course will start and finish at Conover City Park with a relatively flat 2.4 mile course designed with new runners/walkers, families, and children in mind. Harvest permitting, participants will receive a FREE PUMPKIN. As a RunTimeRaces produced event, be assured this event will be well organized and leave you with an Awesome Race Experience.
This year we've added a NEW DIVISION titled Tough Pumpkin Runner Division for all those participants looking for the next challenge. Each Tough Pumpkin Runner participant will be required to carry a volleyball/basketball size pumpkin through the 4K course. Participants may not use any devices, bags, packs, straps, or anything other than their hands and arms to carry the pumpkin. Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female Tough Pumpkin Runners who cross the finish line. Each Tough Pumpkin Runner participant will receive a finisher medal.
