The Great Pumpkin Haul is a 2 mile jaunt through forests and open fields, over creeks, hay bales, and other obstacles at the scenic Botanic Gardens. There is a catch though: you will be covering these two miles carrying your very own personal pumpkin! That's right. Before the "Haul" you will have a chance to go pick out your very own pumpkin from Chatfield's pumpkin patch (the pumpkin is included with entry). We will weigh it and mark it and you will be ready to go! Only the best Pumpkin Haulers will finish without dropping their pumpkin and for the love of fall, don't pick one that is too light. You need the biggest orange orb you can find!
2 mile haul not enough for you?? Then join our FREE pre-run pumpkin bootcamp class and get "warmed up"!
We want the entire family to participate together and so we offer a team/family registration option where if you form a team of 4 or more you each save $5 on entry each (plus you can create a really cool team name and have matching tees/themed costumes). Kids 5 and under also run free.
Post run celebrate with a fall festival you won't forget. Enjoy Pumpkin Yoga, Pumpkin Beer, hot apple cider, music, food trucks, kids activities, corn maze and our fun awards including the "tough pumpkin" for the heaviest pumpkin (men and women), the "pumpkin hauler baller" award for those brave enough to take on 2 pumpkins solo, and also a costume contest!
Registration includes a tee, pumpkin, 12oz pumpkin/fall brew and discounted tickets to the corn maze!
TGPH benefits local non-profit Camp Como- they organize camps and outdoor adventures for youth.
