Running is often seen as a solitary activity and many adult runners hope to get their family involved in the sport they are passionate about. Revere’s Pumpkin Dash 5K has something for everyone including a Kid’s Fun Run course that is set at 1K.
Spectators, runners, and children also enjoy the costume component, unique to this race. Many runners dress in their spookiest, funniest, or goreyist costumes during their run. While this is not required there is a prize awarded as a part of the costume contest.
In addition to a Kid’s Fun Run, enjoy the day at the beach with your family enjoying some great music and food truck fare as you compete in this local race.
This fun annual event is hosted by the Revere Beach Partnership and donations and proceeds will go toward their fundraising mission which is to preserve and enhance America’s first public beach for the enjoyment of all.
Get ready for some fall fun at the Revere Pumpkin Dash 5K!
