6th ANNUAL ALHAMBRA PUMPKIN RUN 2019

We’re celebrating our 6th year! The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is turning 6 years old and we’d love you to join us for our birthday on Sunday, October 27th 2019 in Downtown Alhambra!


The Alhambra Pumpkin Run is one of Alhambra’s largest annual city wide events. The race brings more than 1,500 runners and walkers to the beautiful streets of Downtown Alhambra starting on Main Street and moving in to east Alhambra. Get to know your neighbors and community businesses as they cheer you on during your run. Neighborhood families set-up lemonade stands, cheer you on with signs and bring you to the finish line with music, cheers and laughter.
