The Great Pumpkin Run: Kansas City

Sat October 5, 2019 Directions


We’re so glad you could join us! Please read through all the Participant Guide tabs so you're prepared for a great race day experience!


-The event will be held at HyVee Arena (1800 Genessee St.Kansas City, MO 64102) on Saturday, October 5th.

-Please plan to arrive by 7:30 AM. If you wait until after 7:30 AM, you will may face heavy traffic. 

-Parking will be on-site in the next to the arena in Lot B. This is the lot that is directly east of the arena. 

-All participants need to be ready to line up at the start line by 8:45 AM. We will be sending off Corral A at exactly 9AM, with other corrals leaving every few minutes after. Nobody will be permitted to start after the final corral begins. 

-The number one question we receive is 'When should we arrive?' We advise arriving by 7:30 AM. The closer to race time you arrive, the likelihood of lines for packet pick-up, parking, restrooms, etc. increases. If you wait until after 7:30 AM to arrive, expect heavy traffic and long lines at packet pick-up. 

-Not a runner, but still want to be part of the event? Try volunteering! For more information CLICK HERE!

-If you are a participant who wants to use a backpack during the race - please take note that we only allow CLEAR backpacks, all others are prohibited.
