pumpkin sprint rules:

  1. Grab a pumpkin - First come, first serve- if we are out of pumpkins, you'll have to wait till next year!

  2. Decorate your pumpkin - totally optional, but grab a sharpie and make your pumpkin look awesome!
  3. The Sprint will take place at 10:30 - feel free to store your pumpkin in the pumpkin corral while running the 5K or 1 Mile - or take it with you!
  4. Run the Sprint Course as fast as you can with the pumpkin above your head - it must stay above your head the entire time of the sprint in order to win!

If you win, you'll have bragging rights for the entire year!!!!  If you don't win you still have a great pumpkin to take home with you!

*Please do not smash the pumpkins, it will make us sad and take us even longer to clean up - we appreciate your support!

The Route

‚ÄčThe Trick or Trot 5k/1 mile fun run winds through scenic Morley Field in beautiful Balboa Park. Please note that this route is primarily a TRAIL run. NO CARS!  Strollers are allowed, but the trails are not very stroller friendly for the 5K.  The 1 Mile Fun Run is more stroller friendly. Plan/train accordingly. Also, to keep our costs low this race is NOT chip timed.
