After a fabulous race in 2021 at the new location, Jack-O-Lantern 5K & 10K returns to the Upper Bucks Rail Trail in the Quakertown area. This year, the Pumpkin Challenge will make its return. We will also be offering a virtual option. The Knights of Columbus – Quakertown are again teaming up with the Richland Township Fire & Rescue to present this year’s race. Proceeds will be split between both groups to help the Quakertown area.

*NEW* Pumpkin Challenge:           
If you are looking to take home a pumpkin and an additional medal, this may be the thing for you. You can add the pumpkin challenge to our in-person race registration fee. By participating in the challenge, you will get to pick your choice of pumpkins weighing between 2 to 5 lb. from our patch. You will need to carry the pumpkin the entire race and bring it back in 1 piece. If successful, you get to keep your pumpkin and receive a Pumpkin Challenge medal.

The race will start and finish on the Upper Bucks Rail Trail right out side the Richland Township Fire & Rescue building. 64 Shelly Rd, Quakertown, PA 18951.
