Are you a hungry pumpkin?

Only for the hungriest of pumpkins (and those who can handle dessert like a champ!)

Limited to 25 participants, The Hungry Pumpkin option puts you on the Grand Marshal team to kick-off The Great Pumpkin Run. You and your fellow Grand Marshals will take your spot at the Pie table in front of hundreds of runners. Right before the run begins, you will eat a slice of fresh pumpkin pie for each mile you are about to embark on (yes, 3 slices of delicious pie!)

Beyond the glory, you will also receive a special sash to wear during the run as well as a picture of you chowing down on The Hungry Pumpkin section of the Facebook page. You will still receive all the other items participants get (shirt, medal, pumpkin, and free cider)

Guts, glory, and some pie!
