Halloween 5K set for Oct. 19


October 11, 2019

It’s time to lace up your running shoes and register for northern Minnesota’s oldest Halloween-themed race. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will be hosting the 14th annual Pumpkin Run & Walk at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19. The mostly flat 5K race begins and ends on the campus at 2101 14th Street in Cloquet. The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.

“The Pumpkin Run & Walk is great fun, and while many previous runners and walkers return each year, we see a lot of new participants who have never been on our campus,” said Tom Urbanski, FDLTCC director of public information and race director. “We’ll have runners, walkers, people in costumes, students, area residents, as well as people who travel a long way to get here. It’s a perfect theme for a running race during October and the Pumpkin Run has always been a festive community event.”

To celebrate the theme of the race, participants are encouraged, but certainly not required, to wear Halloween costumes or wear orange clothing. Prizes will be given for best costumes.

Every registered finisher will receive a long-sleeve T-shirt and post-race refreshments. Medals and pumpkins will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers. For more, visit http://www.fdltcc.edu/campus-life/pumpkin-run-walk/ or call 218-879-0800.
