Pumpkin Run's set to go Sunday in Kent
A possible record field will grace the hills and dales of Kent Sunday for the 34th annual Kent Pumpkin Run.
The five-mile event will be hosted starting at 31 at noon by the Kent Chamber of Commerce.
By Wednesday's press deadline, more than 300 runners had already registered.
Signup will be $20 until race day when it would cost $25 to register. Online registration is still available at the race's new website, www.kentpumpkinrun.com.
The event will feature live music along the course, as well as at the start and finish, plus a professional PA system and Halloween family activities.
Davis IGA will offer post-race refreshments for the participants and the traditional Billy's Famous Pumpkin Soup will again be served.
Signup is also open for the accompanying Kids' Fun Run for children aged 10 and younger, hosted by Kent Park and Recreation.
