Sutter Health Presents, Run Your Gourd Off at Bishop's Pumpkin Farm 2018

By Bishop's Pumpkin Farm (other events)

Sunday, September 23 2018 8:30 AM 11:00 AM

The 7th annual run on the farm roads at Bishops Pumpkin Farm will take place on Sunday, September 23rd.  Race distances: 5K run/walk, 10k run and a Kids' Pumpkin Dash ½ Mile. Please join us for this laid back adventure on the farm.Strollers are permitted in the 5K run/walk. Keep in mind that the course is on dirt farm roads.

All run distances take place on the farm dirt roads and surrounding fields of Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm. The farm is located in Wheatland which is less than an hour from Sacramento but it seems like a million miles away from the trappings of daily life. Imagine running through fields of pumpkins, orchards of walnuts, beside a corn maze or through a sunflower field on farm roads with reckless abandon.  Check out the race courses for a full description of the fields each race takes you through.

Following your race, stick around for free things to do including: hay rides, the tree house, hay jump, and tire maze. Also for a nominal fee: train rides, marble mining at Coyote Mountain, Cornfield Maze, and the Sunflower Labyrinth, Charlie's Carousel, and the zip line.  There are endless activities on the farm for everyone. Don’t miss the petting farm animals and finish up the day by heading home with a trunk load of carving pumpkins that you’ve picked yourself.

This year, for an extra charge, stick around for wine tasting hosted by the United Way!

All proceeds of this event will go to the Child Abuse Prevention Center of Sacramento.
