Give your support to the abused and neglected children at Open Arms Shelter. Run the 5K that begins at the historic Lonoke Train Depot, winding its way by the City Park and through beautiful small-town neighborhoods. Known for its flat as a pancake course, the chipped 5K Pumpkin Run is made for setting a personal record. Add to the excitement by wearing an optional yellow flag on your waist. Snoopy and Woodstock lurk throughout the course waiting to steal your flag. Return back to the Depot to drinks, recovery snacks and plenty of entertainment. Cheer on the winners at the awards ceremony led by Matt Mosler and the live band New Horizon. A $100 prize goes to the overall male and female winner. Bring your family to the 1 Mile Family Trot where every child is a winner and gets a mini pumpkin and medal. Can’t be there or don’t want to race...be a Sprit Runner and get a t-shirt in support of the shelter. Be sure and check out one of the best pumpkin patches around offering fresh-picked pumpkins, gourds and squash including traditional long-handled jacks, pie pumpkins, and miniature jacks, along with over 20 other varieties in all shapes and colors! And don’t forget your mums, hay bales and corn stalks. You can also get pumpkins monogrammed while the kids get their face painted, decorate a pumpkin, and play in the little pumpkin house, hay tunnel, corn box, and bouncy house! All proceeds go to the Open Arms Shelter.
