PARTICIPANT GUIDE
WELCOME TO THE GREAT PUMPKIN RUN!


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!

QUICK TIPS & REMINDERS 

-The event will be held at Uncle John’s Cider Mill (8614 U.S. 127 St. Johns, MI 48879) on Saturday, September 7th.

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

-Parking will be on-site and free. Space is limited so carpooling is advised. Please note, if it rains, the lots will be muddy! 

-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!

-For the safety of all participants, strollers and/or wagons are not permitted on the course. They are welcome at the farm as spectators!

-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.
