Gourdy's Pumpkin Run is a 5K that celebrates everything that's great about fall! You can join what has become thousands of peoples' favorite fall tradition by signing up for the Virtual Run. You'll run or walk your 5K anytime, anywhere and quickly discover the perfect way to enjoy the best season of them all! Here is how it works:

The Virtual Run has been a fall tradition for over 100,000 runners and walkers since 2016. Starting this year, Gourdy is welcoming fall-natics outside the USA! If you live in any of the following countries, you can now join in on the tradition: Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States.
