About This Activity

The Pumpkinfest Run usually leads the Pumpkinfest Parade down Pontiac Trail, South Lyon's main street.  For 2021 ONLY, we will utilize a different route in a Covid Related nod.  Because the Pumpkinfest Parade will not take place in 2021, we are moving the Pumpkinfest Run to ISLAND LAKE STATE PARK.

For Saturday's 5K Run, please park in the Kent Lake Parking Lot. (Enter the park.  Go straight at the toll booth for another half mile.  Park in the lot on the left).  A shuttle bus will start running at 8:00 to take runners to the start line at River Bend.  The course is a non repeating straight line from River Bend back to the Kent Lake parking lot.  Registration begins at 7:45 and the starting gun goes off at 9:00

Sunday's Half Marathon starts and finishes inside ISLAND LAKE STATE PARK, but also utilizes the paved path around Kensington Metro Park.  Registration begins at 7:45.  The starting gun goes off at 9:00.  Enter Island Lake Park and turn right at the toll booth. Go back about one mile to the registration shelter at Meadow Picnic Area. 

Participants will enjoy Tech T-shirts, age & gender grouped awards, and refreshments for the 2021 Pumpkinfest 5K and Half Marathon.

Preregistration through 9/23/19 is $25, $30 thereafter.
