2016 Great Pumpkin Race

When: Sat., Oct. 8, 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. 2016

Who else is excited that the fall running season is finally here? Not only is the colorful autumn scenery gorgeous, the cooler weather makes the miles far more pleasant. This weekend you can add a splash of orange to your race roster with the 2016 Great Pumpkin Race held at Venetucci Farm. They've had a rough go of it with the summer hailstorms, so why not cheer them up by cruising through their annual benefit 5K or 10K? Kids 10 and under can participate in the Little Pumpkin Fun Run that includes two distances, 400m and 800m. Costumes are strongly encouraged (it is almost Halloween after all) and there is family fun to be had post-race including face painting, wagon rides, live music, square dancing and more. All proceeds benefit Venetucci Farm. 9:30 a.m. to noon, Venetucci Farm, 5210 S. U.S. Hwy. 85, $35-$40/adult race, $5/kids' fun run, $5 donation suggested for non-race participants, ppcf.org/race. — Bridgett Harris

Price: $35-$40/adult race, $5/kids' fun run
