Costume Contest

2015 Runaway Pumpkin -96-LRunaway Pumpkin Half Marathon & 8K is serious…serious fun, that is! We love it when runners and walkers come dressed in zany costumes. The more original the costume, the better. And we offer splendid prizes for those costumes that really enchant the judges.

Here’s how the contest works:  arrive in costume the morning of the race site. Make sure to come a little early so we can bask in the glory of your ensemble. Head over to the main stage for costume judging at 8 a.m. Photos will be taken and awards will be distributed by 8:30 a.m. You will have plenty of time to warm up and take your place before the start of the race.

If you plan to participate, please indicate by selecting, “yes,” during the registration process. If you have any questions, please email Tammy at

Good luck and have a blast! Hey, and if you are a really organized person, you could even post a photo of yourself and your costume on our Runaway Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter!  We would find that spine-chillingly cool.
