Race Report: 2009 Mooresville Pumpkin Run

The weather at the 10th annual Mooresville Pumpkin Run this past Saturday lent a seasonal spirit, as the skies were dark and gloomy, with a light mist settling on the racers at the beginning.

Over the years the turnout has usually been kind of light at this small town race, but this year was the largest ever at 101 finishers.  Unlike most races where runners leave pretty quickly once they're done, at the Mooresville Pumpkin Run most stay for the plenitude of door prizes.

Below is the unofficial route as determined by my Garmin Forerunner 205.  The course covered a residential section of south Mooresville and offered several aid stations.  Turns were indicated by helpful volunteers.  A little traffic control would have been beneficial at the corner of East Center Ave. and East Statesville Ave., as I (and probably a few others) had to wait for some cars to go through the intersection, which isn't something you want to do with only two blocks left to go.

The overall winner was Sawyer Bowman with a blistering 28:10; first female was Marissa Cooper with a 36:18.  Full results can be found here:
