Registration under way for Pumpkin Run

The 41st annual Kent Pumpkin Run will be held Oct. 29 in Kent.

Races, food, prizes, a costume contest and more will be offered.

Registrants who sign up before Oct. 20 at www.kentpumpkinrun.com will save $5 off the race day entry fee of $30.

Additionally, the first 600 registered runners will receive a commemorative performance shirt.

The day will begin with the kids’ fun run at 11:15 a.m., followed by the five-mile run/walk at noon.

Both races will begin and end on the Kent Green in front of town hall.

Runners wearing costumes have a double chance to win, once as a runner and once for a costume.

Judges will review costumes and determine the winners.

Since 2010 the Kent Pumpkin Run has partnered with the Kent Food Bank.

Spectators and race participants are encouraged to donate online or bring a gift of non-perishable food to support the Kent Food Bank.

Donations of non-perishable goods may be made the day of the race at the registration area or at the Davis IGA during race week.
