BUCKELEW FARM IS OPENING FOR SAR AND THE GREAT PUMPKIN RACE!
The 13th Annual Great Pumpkin Race at Buckelew Farm is a 5K cross country race through the pumpkin fields set for Sunday, October 13, 2019. This is a family-oriented, fun event where how fast you finish makes no difference in terms of the amount of fun that you will have! Just bring the whole family, enjoy the morning, and buy your own pumpkins before you go home!
This is definitely one race you shouldn't be ‘scared’ to enter!
If you are in the holiday spirit and want to wear and run in your favorite Halloween costume we will have prizes for the top 3 costumes voted on by all entrants!
PUMPKIN CARVING AND ART STATION!
After the Family Mile, you can purchase your pumpkins and then visit the pumpkin carving and art station to carve and decorate them!
TRICK OR TREAT!
Kids will be able to do some trick or treating after the races. We are still working on the details of this so make sure to check back closer to the event!
The finish of both the 5K and the 1 Mile are through the crazy, giant Corn Maze! Don't worry, we've only lost a few runners over the years!
We are very proud that this event benefits The Arizona Center for Autism. Click HERE to learn more.
Note that we've moved our start time back an hour to give everyone more time to arrive at the farm!
