Pumpkin Run canceled this year


The Pumpkin Run — a 5k & 10k fun run planned to take place last Saturday as a benefit for West Sacramento aquatics program — was cancelled.

According to an email from organizer Ross Yancher, the lack of sufficient signups was to blame.

“Despite trying as hard as we could, our revenues from this year’s projected participation will not cover our overhead required to host the race (insurance, traffic, control fees, etc.,” said Yancher.

The event was canceled on Thursday and those who paid their fees were promised refunds.

No word on whether organizers would try again in 2013.
