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!
**FIRST 250 REGISTRANTS OF 5K GET A FREE FANDANA COURTESY OF CANYON FENCE!
The Fandana is super-cool and versatile so you can wear in many different ways!
*If you don't pick up your fandana prior to the event we will give it out to another registrant or volunteer
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 ART STATION!
After the Family Mile, you can purchase your pumpkins and then visit the pumpkin art station to decorate them!
TRICK OR TREAT!
There will some Trick or Treat stations on the One Mile course! Bring a small bag to hold all of your goodies!
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!
