The 27th annual Youth & Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run. The event benefits the Youth and Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth (YFSHK). We are looking forward to moving our event to Haddam-Killingworth High School. The new location gives us much flatter race courses and a more room to hold a safe event during COVID-19.
With the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event has a major focus on participant safety. The 5K features two separate start times at 8:00am and 9:45am both with rolling starts, to ensure social distancing. The Kids Fun Run begins at 11:30am, also with a rolling start. During online registration, participants must choose either the 8:00am or 9:45am start time and MUST stick to this chosen start time on race day.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no post-race festivities after the event this year. Participants will be offered pre-packaged food after the event. All food will be pre-wrapped and all volunteers handling any food will be required to wear gloves and a face mask.
