Great Pumpkin Race 2017 - Race Recap

Oct 15, 2017

The 2017 Great Pumpkin Race is in the books! It was a glorious morning and for all of you that didn’t make it out to Buckelew Farms we are sorry that you missed out on all the fun!

We had a fantastic turnout again for the FitKidz mile and, although it seems that somehow a sign may have been moved and the course was long, congratulations to all who braved the 1 plus mile and the ‘terrifying’ trek through the corn maze! The first 3 boys across the finish line were Max Irey, Jackson Gant-Golston and Juan Rodriguez Jr. and the top 3 girls were Alana Felix, Belen Ballesteros and Julia Irby. Nice work!

The 5K course was quite the challenge to put together this year due to the somewhat unique configuration of the farm where the pumpkins are planted in the fields to the west of the corn maze. Runners got to experience a connector trail that many have not run on previously. However, the course measured out reasonably close to the 5K goal despite the challenges and it seems a good time was had by all. Female winners in order were Lauren Reasoner, Elisia Escanuela and Jenny Stolik. Men’s winners in order were Tyler Bauer, Alfredo Rodriguez and Julian Sosa.

We are again astounded with the community of people that make up the Southern Arizona Roadrunners, and the greater Tucson running community. Many among us are so incredibly giving of their time and talents in volunteering to help create a successful and joyous race day experience for fellow runners and walkers. There is a massive list of people to thank including Steve and Sheryl Felde, Michael Miller, Chad Goebel, Marti Ackermann, Gary Giese, Connie Lopez, Shirley Hester,  Rogelio Hernandez, Tricia Conrad, Monica Bermudez, Don Taylor, Tara Bruce, Tim Bentley, Jeri Baker, Heather Hopkins, Erin Brackney, Nichole Sellers, Elyce Berry, Christine Outridge, Joe Plassmann, Robert Yanez. Brent Gambrell and Bea Coyle. We are sorry to those we’ve missed. It truly takes a village to put on these events and we appreciate you more than you know!

Of course, many thanks to the Buckelew family for allowing us to hold one of our whacky runs on their farm every year. They are a tremendous group of people. Many thanks also to our sponsors The Running Shop and Canyon Fence; along with our trusted co-Race Director and co-Creator of this event, Mr. Tom Tronsdal.

Make sure to tell your family and friends what great fun you had this year and that they do not want to miss next year’s event!
