Pumpkin Classic Run and Walk

One of the fastest growing events at the Morton Pumpkin Festival is our Morton Pumpkin Classic 10K Run and 2 Mile Walk, sponsored by LIBBY'S Pumpkin.  We anticipate up to 1,800 people for this exciting activity.

The 10K is chip timed, and both races start on Saturday morning at 7:30 am on North First Avenue behind "A New You." The flat course runs through town and then finishes in the middle of the Festival Grounds on Jefferson Street. Strollers are welcome, but no roller blades and no pets. Afterwards join us at the Post Race Party, featuring our famous pumpkin donuts.  


LIBBY'S Pumpkin Classic 10K participants who register by the specified date receive a Pumpkin Classic tech shirt (September 11 cutoff for the tech shirt) and a finishing medal. The 2 Mile participants also get the tech shirt (September 11 cutoff for the tech shirt)!
