41st Annual Kent Pumpkin Run
Mark your calendars for a day of family fun involving the entire community as we celebrate our 41st Annual Kent Pumpkin Run! There will be races, food, prizes, COSTUME CONTEST, music and more, all part of the main event! Register before Friday Oct. 20 and save $5 off the Race Day entry fee of $30. Additionally, the first 600 registered runners receive a commemorative performance shirt.
Kick the day off with the Kids Fun Run at 11:15 AM followed by the 5 mile run/walk at noon. Both races begin and end on the Kent Green in front of the Kent Town Hall. Runners wearing costumes have a double chance to win ~ once as a runner and once for a clever costume. Judges will review costumes and determine the winners!
Since 2010 the Kent Pumpkin Run has partnered with the Kent Food Bank. As we approach the fall and winter holidays, town food banks become more important than ever. Spectators and race participants are encouraged to donate online or bring a gift of non-perishable food to support the Kent Food Bank. Drop your non-perishable donation off at the Registration area on race day or at the Davis IGA during race week.
Once you have run your race or cheered on your friends & family, Kent is the perfect place to shop! Our locally owned shops offer complimentary gift wrapping year-round. And if all of that running makes you hungry, stop in to one of the fine restaurants for brunch or lunch. Plan to make a day of it in the town that Yankee Magazine has selected as the top town in New England for fall foliage and great things to do.
