The Great Pumpkin Run: Allentown

Sat November 9, 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 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.
