Welcome to Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run, a fall themed fun run that celebrates everything you love about the best season of all. Scroll through the page to learn about what makes this event so special, and how you can get involved in one of our events.
Founded as “The Great Pumpkin Run,” this event has been bringing joy to fall enthusiasts, runners, and communities since the fall of 2012.
Gourdy is our mascot, and the new namesake of our race. He's been with us a while and loves fall way more than most people!
Gourdy's Pumpkin Run is a fun run for people of all ages and levels of experience. The only requirement: bring a positive, fall-loving attitude with you!
Once you become part of the event, the rest is up to you. Running for time? Awesome! Walking with a group of friends? Cool with us. Regardless, we’ll be waiting for you at the finish line, apple cider in hand!
