Kent Pumpkin 5 Miler

Sunday October 27th, 2019
Kent, Connecticut
Distance: 5 Miles · Kids Race

The 41th running of the Kent Pumpkin 5 Miler offers something for everyone! The festivities begin with a Kids Fun Run followed by the 5 mile run/walk. Join the festivities at the start finish area -- Music, refreshments (including Billy's famous Pumpkin Soup!), face painting, Halloween fun and much more. It's a Post race party for all, held strategically in the fall when Connecticut foliage has turned the landscape more beautiful than any painting could convey.

Conquering the Cobble . . . . In A Costume!

Last year’s race witnessed a record number of costume-clad runners. We’re looking to build upon that success this year by encouraging runners to wear a costume. If your “not so blistering pace” isn’t fast enough to land you a spot on the podium, your creativity just may be the ticket. In celebration of our 41st running, we plan to recognize the most creative costume-clad runners at our Awards Ceremony. In addition, a variety of gift certificates, courtesy of local merchants, will be awarded.

Your star rating and comments count.

My favorite is the Kent Pumpkin run 5 miler in Kent, CT. I like the town; the course is scenic, and you can park pretty easily very close to the start. And you get a nice mug if you're in the top 3 in your age group.

Kent Pumpkin 5 Miler

Join us on Sunday October 29, 2017, for the 41st running of the Kent Pumpkin Run where the #1 Fall Foliage town in New England will be the spot for dazzling scenery, homemade pumpkin soup and costumes galore. With events for the entire family, the Kent Pumpkin Run is a fun-filled day for both racers and spectators. One of the oldest races in Connecticut, the Kent Classic attracts both elite runners and those who just want a beautiful walk in the Litchfield Hills with or without their canine BFFs!


The Pumpkin Run kicks off with a Kids Fun Run at 11:15 AM followed by the five mile race/walk at Noon. In the Halloween spirit, many prizes are awarded for costumes as well as finishing times. The gorgeous course has its own reward at the end as all are invited to the Post-race Party with great food, face painting for the kids and gift certificates from Kent’s charming shops.
