This is a perfect way to build up your endurance.  You know, to make sure you have enough stamina for all those trips around the neighborhood as your trick-or-treating.
The 24th annual Pumpkin Run happens on October 19th.  Do the 5k - or if you're looking for something a little better suited for the family and kids - they also have the 400 meter dash.

There's nothing like a good run on a chilly October morning to get you warmed up......or so I've been told.  And, it's for a good cause, or causes.  There's a couple of organizations that benefit from the success of the Pumpkin Run.

The Pumpkin Run takes place at Silver Park (700 Cregg Ln, Missoula) from 10 AM to 1 PM.

You can register for the run HERE.

The Facebook event page can be found HERE.  I've plucked the info from that page and conveniently placed it below.

Run Wild Missoula is excited to announce the 24th annual Pumpkin Run will be held on Saturday, October 19th! With a 5K and 400 Meter dash, there is something for everyone in the family!
