LPS welcomes Pumpkin Run to Seacrest Field

SEE THE MESSAGE BELOW SENT TO FAMILIES ABOUT THE PUMPKIN RUN VENUE CHANGE - WEATHER UPDATE

Pumpkin Runners and Families –

Due to the rains today and the forecasted rains the next couple days, the Pumpkin Run will be moved to Seacrest Park at 70th and A Sts.  We were alerted this morning that Pioneers Park will not be suitable for the run due to flooding on areas of the course and lack of paved parking.

Please read the notes below so you are prepared and have no surprises on Saturday.

-          WEATHER: The Pumpkin Run will take place rain or shine. If there is lightning in the area, heats may be delayed.  Sorry, there are no refunds due to inclement weather. If changes need to be made, announcements will be made on site and will be posted on the Pumpkin Run Facebook page.

-          PARKING - Please be patient and show up early – There are plenty of paved and lined stalls in both the West and East parking lot at Seacrest.    

o   Please carpool if at all possible to eliminate congestion in the parking areas.

o   If you are willing to walk a little ways and want to avoid the majority of the parking congestion, please consider using the Seacrest lot east of the football stadium.

o   If you choose to avoid the weather issues this weekend, Pioneers Park is open every day and your family may choose to do a “Make Up Run” at a later date if you desire.  If you choose that option, souvenir cups will be available at the Nebraska Sports Council Headquarters at 4903 N. 57th St., Lincoln Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Otherwise, they will be available at the finish line for all runners on Saturday.

-          SHOES - Wear old shoes.  The course will be muddy.

-          NOTIFICATIONS – For the quickest and most up to date info. go to our Pumpkin Run Facebook page.
