The Great Pumpkin Haul

Haul a pumpkin for 2 miles over obstacles?!?

Hey everyone!

This one looks like a blast and there is BEER involved : )
This would keep our arms in great shape for indoor volleyball too! Check it out, there is a discount below and if we form a team another $5 off:

The Great Pumpkin Haul
October 26th, 9:30am
Chatfield Botanic Gardens

The Great Pumpkin Haul is a 2 mile jaunt through forests, open fields, over hay bales and other fun obstacles. There is a catch though: you will be covering these two miles carrying your very own personal pumpkin! That's right. Before the "Haul" you will have a chance to go pick out your very own pumpkin from Chatfield's pumpkin patch (the pumpkin is included with entry). We will weigh it and mark it and you will be ready to go! Only the best Pumpkin Haulers will finish with out dropping their pumpkin and for the love of fall, don't pick one that is too light. You need the biggest orange orb you can find!

The event benefits Children's Hospital and there will be "mini" pumpkins for the kiddos to haul too.

We will have awards for the faster hauler, "tough pumpkin" award to the hauler carrying the heaviest pumpkin, the faster team, costume contest and also a "hauler baler" category for those brave enough to take on 2 pumpkins solo.
After the Haul enjoy hot apple cider, seasonal brews from local Colorado breweries, music, and discounted tickets to the corn maze, but don't get lost! Register on a team of 2 or more and save $5 each on registration.

      I'll have to get there early since I doubt I'll make it to highlands ranch Friday for packet pickup. Not that familiar with chatfield though.

      If you look at Chatfield using Google satellite view, you can see a corn maze. Probably not this year's though. I think Jill's the only one of you I'll recognize so if we don't come up with a meeting place - good luck everyone!

    The Groupon expires in a day and a half...just FYI.

    I'm not much of a runner, but this sounds fun so count me in. I even found the Groupon, thanks for mentioning that Jill.

      I doubt I'll be running with a 20lb pumpkin :)

    I'm in Scott. I was thinking of doing this anyway as there is a Groupon for $22 (instead of $45) which is an even better deal than the $5 off :) I don't know if the $5 team discount applies if you use the Groupon though, but we don't really need an 'official' team if we can all get 51% off! I'd much rather do it with a group than just little old me - so thanks for organizing!
