PARTICPANT 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 Kelder's Farm (5835 Route 209 Kerhonkson, NY 12446) on Saturday, October 12th.

-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.  

-The parking entrance is just west of the main farm entrance. Input 5835 Route 209 Kerhonkson, NY 12446 into your GPS as this is the exact address for the parking field. 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 9 AM, 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. 

-While the event is now 100% sold out, we are still looking for volunteers. If you have friends or family that can help on race morning, they will receive a FREE race registration that can be used this year or saved for 2020. 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.
