Race Day, Sunday, September 29th at Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm: 7:45 AM
Fleet Feet Sports is excited to hold Run Your Gourd Off for the second year at Bishop's Pumpkin Farm. This one of a kind event will take place on Sunday, September 29th. Race distances: 5K run/walk, and a kid’s Pumpkin Dash ½ Mile. Please join us for this laid back adventure on the farm.
Both run distances take place on the farm dirt roads and surrounding fields of Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm. The farm is located in Wheatland which is less than an hour from Sacramento but it seems like a million miles away from the trappings of daily life. Imagine running through fields of pumpkins, orchards of walnuts, beside a corn maze or through a sunflower field on farm roads with reckless abandon. Check out the race courses for a full description of the fields each race takes you through.
Following your race stick around for free things to do including: hay rides, the tree house, Farmer Bill's Barn, Naspig races, Children Singer Darrell Haskins. Also for a nominal fee: train rides, marble mining at Coyote Mountain, Cornfield Maze, and the Sunflower Labyrinth. There are endless activities on the farm for everyone. Don’t miss the petting farm animals and finish up the day by heading home with a trunk load of carving pumpkins that you’ve picked yourself.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Wheatland HS extracurricular programs.
