You never know what you’re going to get for weather in Wisconsin late October but thankfully we had a beautiful day for the Great Pumpkin Chase taking place during Pumpkin Pavilion at Humboldt Park.

The activities kicked off with a free kids run around the pond at a quarter mile in length.  We had a lot of kids and a ton of great costumes take part.  Plus, everyone got to go home with a bag of treats to celebrate their finish and Halloween.  Check out the pictures below!

The main event kicked off after the kids finished and took the runners through the park on a 5K journey.  Same as the kids event, we had a ton of great costumes!  We also had some pretty quick runners with the fastest time coming in around 22 minutes.

Prizes were awarded for the best costumes and the fastest under 17 finisher.

Here’s the list of the top ten finishing times along with a link to the complete list:
