The Great Pumpkin Haul 2017


The Great Pumpkin Haul is a 2-mile jaunt through forests and open fields, over creeks and hay bales, all throughout the scenic Botanic Gardens at Chatfield.

There is a catch though: you will be covering those two miles carrying your very own personal pumpkin! That’s right. Before the “Haul” you will have a chance to go pick out your very own pumpkin from Chatfield’s Pumpkin patch (the pumpkin is included with event entry). We will weigh it and mark it and you will be ready to go! Only the best Pumpkin Haulers will finish without dropping their pumpkin and for the love of fall, don’t pick one that is too light. You need the biggest orange orb you can find!

This is not a true obstacle course race, the toughest obstacle is carrying your pumpkin for 2 miles so if you are looking for a challenge choose a heavy one or consider our “double hauler baler” challenge. Expect fun obstacles like hay bales to climb over, crawl unders, spider webs and more.
