Tapping of the Great Pumpkin normally sells out at 700 runners! 

But since we will be limiting the number of runners at both 5k’s…

And our favorite aspect of Tapping of the Great Pumpkin 2020…..

We’ve moved it to a MUCH BETTER LOCATION!

🎃Much better PARKING!
🏃🏻‍♀️Much better 5K RUN COURSE!
🍻Much, much better BEER!
🍹And this year, we’ve added SPIRITS!!!

This year we are proud to announce that 
The 9th Annual Tapping of the Great Pumpkin 5k 
will be at….

Bucks County Brewery & Hewn Spirits in Pipersville!

TAPPING of the Great Pumpkin has always been our 

Given the fact that we’ve improved this event 5 fold and that we need to limit the number of runners…

Both Tapping of the Pumpkin 5k’s 
(Friday & Saturday, October 23rd & 24th) 
will take place at



in Pipersville! 
(20 minutes from The Shoppes at English Village)
And that’s JUST THE START of why BOTH events are going to be super fun & festive:
🎃 Every runner that registers in time will get a TOP OF THE LINE LONG SLEEVE TECH TEE (these long sleeve shirts WILL BE YOUR FAVORITES!)

🎃 Every finisher gets a Scoogie designed huge finisher’s medal! (that doubles as a bottle opener!)
🎃 Every runner registered in time gets a vanity bib (your name/nick-name) with a Bucks County Beer & Hewn Spirits coupon on it!)
🎃 Choose to run your event in a costume and you will automatically be entered in the "Best Costume Contest" or feel free to run in your normal running attire!

Again, no mailing of awards or shirts. If you have to leave the race early for ANY reason, you must notify us to save your award.  If you do not, we cannot hold/store awards and will likely be given to a race day entry or someone else. It is simply too much to hold/store & inventory the awards. 

Note: If you are registered for this race and you registered in time to choose a t shirt size BUT you are unable to run for whatever reason, you will NEED TO CONTACT us BEFORE RACE DAY and let us know if you'd like us to hold on to your reserved giveaway (t shirt) for you to pick up at a future Scoogie Event. If you do not do this, we cannot hold your shirt and it will be given to someone that registered after the deadline. We cannot mail shirts.

Can't wait to see everyone on October 23rd or 24th!!!! (You're in for quite a treat)

Quick note: You will be required to wear a mask before and after the run...but not during 😊😊😊
