1st Annual Pumpkin Trail Run


Milton, WV - Pumpkin Park


September 30, 2017 - 9:00 AM




The Pumpkin Park Trail Run is seeped in history starting/finishing at the historic covered bridge at the entrance of the Park and will encompass 85 acres of the Pumpkin Park.   The run will consist of asphault, gravel and grass.  The Pumpkin Festival Trail Run is the first official event of the WV Pumpkin Festival and so the park will still be in a tranquil state before the park becomes a beehive of activity.  Grassy fields.  Tree shaded trails.  Gravel paths.  Asphault pavement.  Only one small incline on the course.  The course should be flat and easy for all participants.  The course will take participants through grassy fields and tree shaded lanes.  We do discourage strollers because of the roughness of the terrain. 

Entry Fees

$25 for all registered participants/$30 on race day.  $10 for all children under the age of 12 for the fun run. Depending on the age of children we will have varying distances for the children to run.  Each child will receive a pumpkin with their registration.  That is why it is important for parents to pre-register their children so we will have sufficient pumpkins for every child.
