Huckleberry Trail Farm Corn Maze

Just up 15-501, get your running shoes on for the Pumpkin Run on October 26, 2013.

The famous Pumpkin Trail Run will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 26th. The Pumpkin Run is a 4K (2.49-mile) trail race along a Carolina North Forest trail just north of Horace Williams Airport in Chapel Hill. This is not your typical running event!
