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!
