One of the most popular events at the Morton Pumpkin Festival is our Pumpkin Classic Run and Walk, sponsored by LIBBY’S® Pumpkin.

The race starts on Saturday morning at 7:30 am on North First Avenue. The flat course runs through town to the outskirts of Morton and then finishes on Jefferson Street, in the heart of the Pumpkin Festival.

After the race, participants are invited to join us at the Post Race Party for beverages, snacks, our famous pumpkin donuts, music, and a fun area to hang out with fellow racers and family members.

All the Pumpkin Classic participants who register by September 11 will receive a tech shirt as part of their entry fee. All 10K racers will receive a medallion upon completion of the race!
