We hosted The Great Pumpkin Run on September 14, 2019! See you again next year!
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.
All participants will receive the following:
- Entry to the 5K run or walk (3.1 miles)
- 2019 lightweight tech hoodie, perfect for fall running
- 2019 finisher’s medal
- Commemorative race bib with chip timing

*All participants will receive free admission to Keller’s Farmstand activities. Admission is good for the entire day and includes the 10-acre corn maze, animal barn, kids’ play area, grain tables, and more. Don’t leave without riding on our free tractor-drawn wagon ride which begins after all races are finished. We hope you can join us for a day of fun!
