Pumpkin Dash


Revere Beach Pumpkin Dash 5k and Fall Festival

Whether you’re new to running or a returning participant, you won’t want to miss this year’s Pumpkin Dash 5k held on Revere Beach. This annual fall tradition is fun not just for the adult runners and participants but for children of all ages with activities for all ages. 

The Pumpkin Dash 5k is back for another year! It will be held on Sunday, October 22nd on the gorgeous (and flat) Revere Beach and boulevard. Also back by popular demand is the Kid’s Fun Run with prizes for winners in all categories. 


What Is the Pumpkin Dash? 

Our annual 5k race, lovingly dubbed the Pumpkin Dash has something for everyone. Start a crisp fall day on the beach running with your child during the Kid’s One Mile Fun Run, then take on this fast and flat course yourself during the adult 5k race. 

Most of our runners wear their spookiest Halloween costumes, not only to race in style, but to win one of the prizes for best costume, making this race extra entertaining for all participants! 

Following the race all of our participants will get a free commemorative t-shirt and a race medal. If you are over 21 (and so inclined,) you will also get a free beer after the race. 

The day wouldn’t be complete without a kid’s pumpkin patch, pumpkin decorating, and live entertainment for all. Included this year is a beer garden for our over 21 crowd.
