Kent Pumpkin Run Virtual for 2020

The Kent Pumpkin Run will be held virtually October 22 – 25, 2020.

Here is how you can take part this year.

Register for the race via Eventbrite from Sept. 8 to Oct. 23.  Run and time yourself for 5 miles on Oct. 22, 23, 24 or 25.  Walkers are also welcome and can also run the distance on your treadmill.  Send us your results no later than 5:00 PM (EST) on Sunday Oct. 25th to an email address we will provide when you register.

We will tabulate the results and overall winners, along with division winners, will be mailed cool commemorative Pumpkin Run medals. A prize will also be given to the registered runner who is located the furthest from Kent. Results will be posted on the Kent Pumpkin Run website no later than noon on Monday Oct. 26th.

Registered runners will also be mailed a packet of swag, including Halloween goodies and a specially-designed “Run” mask.  Unfortunately this year we will not have T-shirts, however, if you would like a top-grade athletic shirt from last year, we are more than happy to have you pick it up at the Heron American Craft Gallery located at 16 North Main Street, Kent CT.

The Heron Gallery will also be accepting canned and dry good donations for the Kent Food Bank. Donations can be put inside a plastic bin located on the back porch of the business when it is not opened. Make it a family afternoon and visit Kent’s many quality shops and restaurants.

The Kent Pumpkin Run is hosted by the Kent Chamber of Commerce which proudly supports local businesses.

Please Support our Sponsors ~ it is only through their generous support that this annual classic can continue to thrive!
