This year's Lake Bluff PTO Pumpkin Chase 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is on Saturday October 29, 2022. The 5K starts @ 8AM and the Fun Run starts @ 9:15AM. Our 5K course is a certified course (USATF- IL-14092-JW) that travels along the beautiful tree lined streets of east Lake Bluff down to the bluff overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan. Don't forget to bring the kids as the 1 Mile Fun Run begins shortly after the 5K and is a family favorite with K-8th grade bragging rights on the line. Stick around for the Post Race Pumpkin Fest at the Lake Bluff Middle School adjacent to the start/finish line.
