Yes Charlie Brown fans a Great Pumpkin Run! A race my son and I are very excited about! This is the first year I have heard of it being held here in Indianapolis, IN but it looks like it will be a very fun time! The Great Pumpkin Run is a trail run encompassing everything great about Fall.
Start your morning with a run through trails, open fields, bright paths and a corn maze. Finish it off with a glass of crisp apple cider, a Fall beer (if you are old enough) and plenty of Fall activities for you, the kids and the family.
The Great Pumpkin Run is a family-friendly event, open to runners of all ages. All runners will receive a small pumpkin to take home and a cup of apple cider or a Fall beer, along with an event tour shirt, a custom event bib, chip timing and can attend the post-race party!
If you are like me and bring your 4 year old son you won’t be in this race for the best time ever. So whether you want to walk, run, jog, skip or even dance in a 5k this race is for you. The course itself is extremely scenic and fun.

For an additional $10, runners have the option of carrying a pumpkin up to 10 lbs with him or her for the duration of the run. If they cross the finish line with it in hand, they will receive a medal and can keep the pumpkin!
The Apple Works will be holding a Food Truck Festival the day of the race, October 5. It will start shortly after the race ends and invites all runners to stick around for what they have to offer!
Personally I cannot wait! Pumpkins, running, scenic view through an orchard, a corn maze and apple cider? I think the toughest part about all this is trying to decide if we want to (or can rather) carry the pumpkin through the race too!
