About This Activity

The Great Pumpkin Haul is a 2 mile jaunt through forests and open fields, over creeks, hay bales, and through the scenic Botanic Gardens. There is a catch though: you will be covering these two miles carrying your very own personal pumpkin! That's right. Before the "Haul" you will have a chance to go pick out your very own pumpkin from Chatfield's pumpkin patch (the pumpkin is included with entry). We will weigh it and mark it and you will be ready to go! Only the best Pumpkin Haulers will finish with out dropping their pumpkin and for the love of fall, don't pick one that is too light. You need the biggest orange orb you can find!

This is year #3 of the event and everything will be bigger and better!  More fun obstalces, early event date= prime time for big/firm pumpkins, and this year we are adding a Pumpkin Brew fest!   In addition to a 16oz beer that is included in registration we are inviting out a handful of Colorado craft breweries to provide additional fall/pumpkin themed tasters for free!

TGPH benefits Camp Como and we will have plenty of mini-pumpkins for the kiddos if they choose to haul too. Kids under 5 run free (unless they want the pumpkin, tee and drink included in fee based registration).

2 mile haul not enough for you?? Then join our FREE pre-run pumpkin bootcamp class and get "warmed up"!

Or maybe your biceps and shoulders are not feeling par?  Form a 2 person "share and haul" team: 2 people, 1 pumpkin, $5 discount on registration each.  

We also offer a team/family registration option where if you form a team of 4 or more you each save $5 on entry (plus you can create a really cool team name and have matching tees/themed costumes)

We will have awards for the "tough pumpkin" for the heaviest pumpkin (men and women) and a "pumpkin hauler baller" award for those brave enough to take on 2 pumpkins solo, also a costume contest!

After the Haul, enjoy hot apple cider, food trucks, games and activities, seasonal Colorado brews, music and the annual corn maze, but don't get lost!

Registration includes a tee, pumpkin, 16oz pumpkin/fall brew and discounted tickets to the corn maze!

NOTE:  The 2 person Haul registration includes only 1 PUMPKIN to share between 2 people.  Each person does get their own tee and post run beer.

The kids 5 and under entry is FREE and so does not include a tee or pumpkin.  These can be purchased separately during registration or on event day.
