The Pumpkin Run is a 5k run/walk that begins and ends at Mendocino High School and winds throughout the coastal village of Mendocino, along the rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean. Costumes are encouraged for this event. We seperate the age categories into three levels, 17 and under, 18-35 and 35 and older, then sperated by gender. Top three in each category recieve prizes instead of medals or ribbons. We also give prizes foir the top two costumes. All procedes for this event go to Club Cardinal which is the non-profit booster for our schools athletics programs.
