The Great Pumpkin Dash

A fun filled 2K Pumpkin Lug where participants wear costumes and carry a pumpkin either as individuals or part of a team. Four fun obstacles along the way are appropriate for young and old.

Event is not timed. Introducing the 5K Jack-o'-Lope and 2K Pumpkin Lug! Mt. Holiday's hilly terrain will definitely give you a run for your money. The Meijer Jack-o'-Lope 5K is timed and precedes the 2K Pumpkin Lug. Sign up for both! Get your run in ... then get your fun in! Like to lope? Then lace up, throw your orange on, and run Mt. Holiday's challenging 5K course!

2K Great Pumpkin Lug
Love it, hug it, and LUG it! Your punkins will love this 2K obstacle course/pumpkin carry. Better yet, get your four-person relay team together for a morning of fun luggin'. The 2K Lug is untimed, for all ages, with prizes for best costume, heaviest lug, and more! Holiday's 2K Great Pumpkin Lug is where pumpkins and their people have one goal: crossing the finish line ... unsquashed. The 2K Lug rolls through Mt. Holiday's woodsy terrain, taking costumed luggers of all ages through four fun obstacles. There is a catch though: Everybody big and small has to carry a pumpkin! Before the dash begins, pick your special pumpkin from our patch. We will weigh it and mark it. If you're really brave, pick two! Your arms will love you for it. The goal? Finish the lug, squash intact!
