Due to the limited number of people who can congregate, we decided to sadly have our 20th Annual Great Pumpkin Challenge virtually. This popular community event features 5K and 10K with proceeds benefitting Saratoga Bridges’ essential programs and services.

By being virtual, the 5K and 10K you can run or walk at your convenience between October 17-31.  As we will not have an official course this year, choose your own or stay on ours in the Saratoga State Park.  Mile markers will be posted in the Park during our 2 week event.  Otherwise, we recommend www.mapmyride.com to locate an option in your area and encourage you to drive the route first to check on a safe course with good shoulders and sight lines. During your run/walk, please continue to follow social distancing policies and requirements.

Once you have finished your race, please report your time.  These need to be submitted by October 31st.  Our $25 registration fee garners you a long-sleeve moisture wicking shirt. Register Here
