1-Mile Fun run FAQ's
Many of the same FAQs for the 5K apply to the overall Pumpkin Run festivities. You may see a full list of the FAQs here for your reference.
However, you may have a few specific questions about the Fun Run:
Q: What is the purpose of the 1-Mile Fun Run?
A: Fall is a great time to enjoy the cooler temperatures and for families to get outside and exercise together. Even though the 5K can be done at your own pace, you may feel more comfortable running or walking a shorter distance. We're offering the shorter route for those who may want to ease into a running event. Regardless of the route you choose, always make sure to consult a doctor before starting a running program if you have any concerns.
Q: Will the 1-Mile have a chance for color?
A: Absolutely! Though you'll only be able to go through a single color stop, all participants will receive a color packet for the color party at the end of the run. We promise you'll still have a lot of fun and get some great exercise in as well! Check out more on the Color Runners Page for more information on the color portion of the run.
Q: What is included in my 1-Mile registration?
A: Each 1-Mile registration includes:
- 1 official Fun Run t-shirt (crisp white and ready for color!)
NOTE: You must be registered by Oct. 16 to be guaranteed a t-shirt
- post-race goodies
Q: Can any age participate in the Fun Run or is it just for kids?
A: Like the 5K Pumpkin Run, any age can participate. So if you prefer a shorter run, parents/guardians can do the 1-Mile run/walk with their children. However, for any child to participate in either run, we must have a completed form/waiver for each person and the responsible adult (the parent or guardian who registered him/her) must
Q: Can I register my child for the fun run, but then participate myself in the 5K?
A: For the safety of all runners, we must insist that all parents or guardians accompany those children they registered at all times. Therefore if you plan to run the 5K, you'll need to register your children for the 5K. The 1-Mile is the same process. Remember, both of these races may be completed at your own pace so we expect there will be children and adults on both races running/walking at various paces.
