Pumpkin Classic Run and Walk

2021 Pumpkin Classic

One of the most popular events at the Morton Pumpkin Festival is our Pumpkin Classic Run & Walk, sponsored by LIBBY’S® Pumpkin.

When: Saturday, September 18
What: 10K & 2 mile fun run/walk
Where: PNC Bank lot (Jefferson St.)

The 2-mile event is now officially an untimed fun run/walk and kicks off just ahead of the 10K runners. We will begin the festivities at 7:00am and send off the 2-milers at 7:15am, followed by the 10k runners at 7:30am. This will allow for less congestion throughout the race, at the split, and most importantly at the finish line! The flat course runs through town to the outskirts of Morton and then finishes on Jefferson Street, in the heart of the Pumpkin Festival.

The 2-mile fun run/walk welcomes old, young, short, tall, strollers, and wheelchairs.  No roller blades or dogs allowed in either event.

After the race, participants are invited to join us at the Post Race Party for beverages, snacks, our famous pumpkin donuts, music, and a fun area to hang out with fellow racers and family members. There will be an awards ceremony at approximately 9:00am.
