GOURDY’S PUMPKIN RUN (aka GPR)

By now, you know that Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run is a race that celebrates our favorite season. Over the last decade, 320,000+ fall-natics have helped shape the race to what it is today. Everyone has their own reason for showing up on race morning. Ours? It’s a great excuse to get outdoors, enjoy some apple cider, all with a healthy dose of exercise in the autumn air!

10 YEARS OF FALL FEELS.

Founded as “The Great Pumpkin Run,” this event has been bringing all the joys of the season since 2012.

MEET GOURDY.

Namesake of the race. While he loves running, he never takes it too seriously.

FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Gourdy's Pumpkin Run has always been an event for all. Runners, walkers, skippers, and joggers are welcome!

JOIN THE 5K.

The only tough choice you have to make is whether you want to join a location-based race or opt for the Virtual Run. In-person races are held on specific dates + times (a traditional race experience). The Virtual Run means you can complete your 5K anytime, anywhere, with all the race goodies shipped to your door!

JOURNEY TOWARDS FALL.

Take part as much or as little as you want. Sure, you can show up on race morning and enjoy it. But, part of the fun is engaging with fellow fall-natics in the months leading up to the big day. A few ways:

JOIN THE FACEBOOK COMMUNITY GROUP.

Connect with our community of runners and walkers on our Facebook Community Group.

I am totally addicted to virtual runs. 🏃‍♀️ 

I don’t know what it is about Thanksgiving, but it makes me sign up for wayyyyy too many virtual Turkey trots. 🥴😆

Last year I did three. 

This year I signed up for FOUR plus Burn the Bird with #BooCrew. 😎

This last week I completed three 5ks! My fastest time was 47 minutes, which in comparison to last year’s 75 mins is QUITE the improvement. 

I plan to do my first 10K on Thanksgiving with megan.b159 and my goal is just to FINISH. I’m a little scared, but even if I walk or crawl, I’m determined to complete it. 

It’s amazing to think that last year a 5k was a HUGE challenge for me, and this year it doesn’t scare me at all. 

Just goes to show you—DO THE THINGS THAT SCARE YOU. You will totally surprise yourself!
