Alhambra Pumpkin Run

October 24, 2021 · Alhambra, CA

Distance: 1K kids run, 5K

We’re back in person this year!! . . . and celebrating our 8th year!

The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is one of Alhambra’s largest annual city wide events. The race brings more than 1,500 runners and walkers to the beautiful streets of Downtown Alhambra starting on Main Street and moving into east Alhambra. 

Get to know your neighbors and community businesses as they cheer you on during your run. Neighborhood families set-up 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. *Costumes may not create a safety hazard to yourself or other runners.


We have a NEW division this year!  Our new Kiddie Fun Run begins with a fun warm up of exercises and quick dance led by our fun master of ceremonies before each group. This route will be a half K (half of the route of the 1K) for ages 4 and 5 years old. 

Free and fun outdoor festival for the entire family!
