The 8th Annual Pumpkin Run and Halloween Fest is back in person this year, taking place on Sunday, October 24, 2021 in Downtown Alhambra. Proceeds will benefit the Alhambra Educational Foundation!
This great family event features 10K, 5K and 1K runs, as well as live entertainment, Trick-or-Treating at downtown businesses, carnival games, costume contest, Alhambra Certified Farmers Market and much more! Dress up in your best Halloween, Pumpkin or Orange gear! Being so close to Halloween, many of our runners dress up to the run. Feel free to wear anything and all orange, a Halloween costume or a big and fun pumpkin tutu! Make it fun. Make it memorable. *Costumes may not create a safety hazard to yourself or other runners.
A new division has been added this year. The Kiddie Fun Run begins with a fun warm up of exercises and quick dance led by the fun master of ceremonies before each group. This route will be a half K (half of the route of the 1K) for ages 4 and 5 years old. Visit the Alhambra Pumpkin Run website to register for the run/walk, or for more details about the event.
