The 2020 Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run has been cancelled due to current events. You can still participate in the Virtual Run. Sign up on their website below. We hope to see you running or walking this 5K event on our farm in 2021!

Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run (formerly The Great Pumpkin Run) celebrates everything that is great about fall with a healthy dose of physical activity! Run or walk this 5K path near the apple orchard, pumpkin patch, and corn maze on our farm! (These paths are not paved because, well, it’s a farm!) Think you’re tough? Register for the Tough Pumpkin option and carry a pumpkin with you throughout the run. It’ll be a race you’ll never forget! Registration is now open.

We hosted The Great Pumpkin Run 5K on Saturday, September 14, 2019. What an awesome day that was! The runners not only displayed their costume creativity but also showed an exuberance for being in the great outdoors. Their endurance and perseverance for finishing the 3.1-mile path was impressive. Great job to all 2,268 runners and walkers! For more photos, check out our Facebook and Instagram posts!
