Runners then loop right and travel back to Main Street as they pass a DJ on the Renaissance Theater corner by Applebee’s and turn left onto Main Street and travel east down to El Molino Ave and then make a U-turn back around to face west on Main Street.
Runners travel west back to Garfield Ave. and turn left and travel south on Garfield Ave. to Bay State and then make a U-turn back around to face north on Garfield Ave. When runners hit Main Street, they will turn left onto Main Street traveling west to the FINISH LINE!
NOTE: Our 2023 route is slightly different from previous years in Downtown Alhambra. We will not be looping through our residential areas and we have added an extra loop on Garfield traveling south to Bay State.
The 1K course features a turnaround loop easy for the kids to follow and a police bike will be guiding the runners on the loop. The race begins on Main Street at our start line (cross street: 2nd Street) facing east Alhambra. The race begins and runners make a U-Turn at 5th Street and runners turn back around on Main Street facing west and ending at the finish line on 2nd Street.

PARTY TIME & FUN RUN!
IN PERSON RUN:
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. *Costumes may not create a safety hazard to yourself or other runners.
REMEMBER, 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.
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!
Remember to wear your bibs on the front of your shirt during the race.
After the run, please visit our Race Timers truck located on the south side of the finish line. Your results will be displayed at the truck after your run. Be sure to run across the timing mat under the arch to end your official time.
Please note: For all 10K runners, you will ONLY cross the timing mat at the END of your race. Do not cross the timing mat at your first loop. Make sure you run through the 10K crossover to the right of the finish line arch.
