Tough Pumpkin

Grab a pumpkin and run!

Sign up for the Tough Pumpkin option and we'll supply you with a pumpkin to run with before the race. Cross the finish line with it intact and you'll receive a second, exclusive Tough Pumpkin finisher medal that pairs perfectly with the regular bling!

Can't make it this year?

No worries! We have a Virtual Option. Simply register and complete 3.1 miles on your own this fall, where you'd like. You will receive a bib and tech hoodie ahead of time. After you finish your 5K, send us your time and we will ship you your medal! Learn more!

Training Tank Top and Shirt

Order one of these during registration and you'll be set for those long sessions in the gym (and also those fun happy hours!)


Parking is free! We will have a parking crew helping direct traffic this year, so please follow their instructions on where to park in the lot.

Post-race Party

We are excited to have a fall-filled post race party! Details will be announced later this spring!
