To the Editor:
The 34th edition of the Kent Pumpkin Run was one for the record books.
With 653 registered runners and nearly 600 finishers, the race was nearly double the size of any previous year. That just doesn't happen.
It happened because of People Power.
The race showed how the citizens of Kent and the northwest corner can come together to throw one heckuva community event.
Despite the crowds, the race did not lose its hometown feel.
Thanks to our sponsors and the Kent Chamber of Commerce, the race host.
The real power behind the race is its committee. They are the workhorses.
Without you, this never would have happened.
