Pumpkin Pursuit / Color Dash
Pumpkin Pursuit Run

The Great Pumpkin Pursuit is a flat, fast cross-country race with no roads, sidewalks, or water crossings entirely on the MCCC Main Campus. 5K participants will receive a T-shirt and refreshments and be entered in door prize drawings. T-shirts are not guaranteed for late registrants.

Proceeds will support the creation of scholarships at Monroe County Community College. The Foundation at MCCC's Endowed Scholarship Program enriches the lives of many students who might not have had the opportunity to pursue a higher education. Because of the generosity of our scholarship donors, these students have access to a high-quality education that will prepare them for entry into the workforce or to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete their baccalaureate degree.

The Color Dash is a 5K color fun run/walk with an emphasis on fun. Participants should be more concerned with being bathed in the best rainbow of colors and laughing all the way to the finish line. Whoever has the most fun wins, meaning victories will be plentiful.

The powder will be thrown by volunteers who are all to eager to use you as their own personal canvas. Each kilometer completed will bring a new color to the mix.
