We're moving our 5K to Main Street - Downtown Alhambra for our 4th Annual Alhambra Pumpkin Run 2017!!

Our mission is to provide a fun, family environment to promote physical fitness, health and fun through a community based event.
The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is one of Alhambra's biggest annual city wide events. The race brings more than 1,000 runners to the event and the run moves through the beautiful streets of Main Street and Downtown Alhambra. Get to know your neighbors and local businesses as they cheer you on during your run. Neighbors make lemonade stands, cheer you on with signs and bring you to the finish line with music, cheers and laughter.

PARTY!

The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is also a HUGE party! 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.

IMPORTANT RUN INFO

The following is important information about packet pick up, your timing chip, and rules for the race course. If you registered another person it is your responsibility to share this information with them.

PARKING: Our runners may park in any city parking lot or available street parking. Parking lots located on 2nd Street north and south of Main Street. Please view the course map and park outside of the route. Use the walk as a pre race warm up exercise.

  • Pay attention to all posted signs. Parking is at your own risk and protect any valuables you leave in your car.
  • If you live locally, use Uber or Lyft to catch a ride and avoid the parking hassle all together.
  • Carpool...less cars = more parking for others
  • Be courteous to the residents and avoid loud music and talking in the early arrival hours.
  • Do NOT block residential driveways.
  • Do NOT park in the local business parking lots. We are not responsible for any parking tickets or towing.
  • Do NOT leave any trash behind (even if it is not your’s).

TIMELINE:

  • REGISTRATION STARTS AT 6:30AM
  • WARM UP STARTS AT 7:45AM
  • 5K RACE STARTS AT 8:00 AM
  • KIDS 1K RACE STARTS AT 9:30AM
  • All runs start on time. Please arrive early and well rested.

ON SITE REGISTRATION AND PICK UP: On site registration & pick up will close precisely at 7:45AM in honor of the National Anthem and Color Guard presentation.

BIB NUMBERS & TIMING CHIPS: DO NOT FORGET YOUR BIB!! Your race bib is chipped for timing and must be pinned to the FRONT of your shirt. We cannot replace any bibs forgotten at home and everyone must have a bib to participate in the Pumpkin Run (unless they are 5 years old and under and just along for the ride).

TIMING: This event is chip timed which means your race time begins when you cross the start line and ends when you cross the finish line. For this reason, you do not need to crowd the starting line trying to be the first person to take off. Cutoff for official timed results is 8:15 AM for 5K - no exceptions!

FINISH LINE: Be sure to run across the timing mat at the arch to end your official time.

1K KIDS’ RACE: The 1K run will begin at the conclusion of the Pumpkin Run at 9:30 AM. We would love to see all 5K finishers line the streets and finish area to cheer the children to the finish line.

AWARDS: Everyone is invited to stay for the awards ceremony after the 1K Kids’ Race at 10:00AM.
