Run the 5K that begins at the Historic Lonoke Train Depot, winding its way by the Lonoke City Park and through beautiful small-town neighborhoods. Known for its flat as a pancake course, the chipped 5K Pumpkin Run is made for setting a personal record. Cheer on the winners at the awards ceremony led by Matt Mosler and the live band New Horizon. Get the whole family to participate in the 1 Mile Family Trot where every child is a winner and gets a mini pumpkin and medal. Can’t be there or don’t want to race…be a Virtual Runner and get a t-shirt to support Lonoke Open Arms.

Be sure and check out the Pumpkin Patch offering over 20 varieties of locally grown pumpkins, gourds and squash of all colors, shapes and sizes, along with fall flower arrangements, mums & straw bales. And the kids will enjoy Munchkin Village and play in the little pumpkin house, hay hill and the corn treasure box.

Registration for the 1M Family Trot is $10 per child, parents are free.
