About This Activity

Fall is here and so is The Great Pumpkin Run!

 Get ready to tackle 3.1 miles or opt for the 15K at 9.3 miles in downtown Akron, Ohio. Participants will enjoy a scenic run that starts out at Lock 3 Park before progressing through the city streets. Eventually hopping on the trail system before heading back along the river, the fall foliage is sure to wow you!

Registration includes:

-Entry to the 5K/15K run or walk

-1/4 zip, lightweight, tech hoodie

-The Great Pumpkin Run 2017 finisher's medal

-Free apple cider

-Small pumpkin to take home

-Chip timing

-Commemorative bib

-Free professional race photos from Gameface Media

 Running too easy? Select the Tough Pumpkin option! You will get a pumpkin (up to 10 pounds) to trot along with. Make it to the finish with the pumpkin in hand and you will receive an exclusive Tough Pumpkin medal (twice the bling!)
