Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run 5K @ Uncle John's Cider Mill
Sep 11 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm


Everyone’s favorite fall tradition has a new name! If you’ve ran with The Great Pumpkin Run in the past 8 years, you’ve probably seen our buddy Gourdy around the farm. Gourdy’s been working tirelessly behind the scenes since the beginning, and it’s finally time to recognize his hard work. It’s the same great race we’ve all grown to love, but with a new name: Gourdy is the new namesake and official ambassador of your favorite fall race: Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run!

Traverse the fields, run through the apple trees and dash by the corn before crossing the finish line (where you’ll take home a pumpkin and enjoy a glass of apple cider)!
