Sat November 9, 2019 Directions
PARTIPANT 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 Fountain Park (961-967 Martin Luther King Jr Dr. Allentown, PA 18102) on Saturday, November 9th. Parking is located north of the park. Click here for all the parking details and a handy map on how to get from the downtown parking area to the park!

-Please plan to arrive by 8:30 AM. If you wait until after 8:30 AM, you will face heavy traffic and long lines!

-All participants need to be ready to line up at the start line by 9:45 AM. We will be sending off Corral A at exactly 10AM, with other corrals following right 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 8:30 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 8:30 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.
