Race Info

Our mission is to provide a fun, family environment to promote physical fitness, health and fun through a community based event.

The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is one of Alhambra’s biggest annual city wide events. The race brings more than 2,000 runners to the event and the run moves through the beautiful streets of Alhambra. Get to know your neighbors as they cheer you on during your run. Neighbors make lemonade stands, cheer you on with signs and bring you to the finish line with music, cheers and laughter.


The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is also a HUGE party! Dress up in your best Halloween, Pumpkin or Orange gear! Being so close to Halloween, many of our runners dress up to the run. Feel free to wear anything and all orange, a Halloween costume or a big and fun pumpkin tutu! Make it fun. Make it memorable.

Additional Info

On site registration and pick up: On site registration & pick up will close precisely at 7:45AM in honor of the National Anthem and Color Guard presentation.

Bib numbers & timing chips: DO NOT FORGET YOUR BIB!! Your race bib is chipped for timing and must be pinned to the FRONT of your shirt. We cannot replace any bibs forgotten at home and everyone must have a bib to participate in the Pumpkin Run (unless they are 5 years old and under and just along for the ride).

Timing: This event is chip timed which means your race time begins when you cross the start line and ends when you cross the finish line. For this reason, you do not need to crowd the starting line trying to be the first person to take off. Cutoff for official timed results is 8:15 AM for 5K – no exceptions!

Finish line: Be sure to run across the timing mat at the arch to end your official time.

1K Kids race: The 1K run will begin at the conclusion of the Pumpkin Run at 9:30 AM. We would love to see all 5K finishers line the streets and finish area to cheer the children to the finish line.
