Pumpkin Pies - Uptown Pumpkin Dash 5k - Marysville, Ohio

One of the more exciting aspects of the Uptown Pumpkin Dash will be the pumpkin pies we'll have on race day for participants.  We'll have 300 pumpkin pies to give to the first finishers of the race, courtesy of our sponsor, Community Markets in Marysville.

Speaking about Community Markets, we are also going to be asking participants to donate a canned item to one of our two charities, Marysville Food Pantry.  If you can, please support our sponsor by purchasing your donated item from them.  When at all possible, stop by their store and pick a few things up.  I think you'll like the store and the friendly staff.
