About Us

Local volunteers having fun and helping a good cause.

Like most of these things, our event started small. A simple idea to hold a pumpkin themed event to benefit a worthy cause. Organized by the creators of Mud, Sweat, and Beers, 100% of the Great Pumpkin Dash proceeds benefit Mt. Holiday and other local nonprofits and service organizations. 

Mt. Holiday is one of two non-profit ski areas in the Midwest. When winter fades to spring, it's time for some non-snowy fun!
As the newest of Mt. Holiday's blue-ribbon fundraisers (Mud, Sweat, and Beers; Dinner in the Hills) the Great Pumpkin Dash was created not only for competitive runners, but for their families, too. 

The Great Pumpkin Dash is perfect: You can race as an individual or team, you get to wear your Halloween costume, and you get to pick your perfect pumpkin to keep! Plus a cool t-shirt and yummy fall treats post-race.

What could be better? Not to mention, all your good clean fun benefits a community jewel: Mt. Holiday!

Mt. Holiday is a not-for-profit organization focused on providing affordable winter and summer recreational opportunities for the youth - in particular the underprivileged. To learn more about Mt. Holiday please visit their website at www.mt-holiday.com
