Hundreds of community members join us each year for the annual Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce Gumbo Flats Pumpkin Run/Walk. The 5K and 10K are flat, fast, out-and-back courses. The Chamber also hosts a half-mile kid's fun run for ages 10 and under. Costumes are encouraged for kids and adults alike! Also, the 5K and 10K races will serve as the 2017 "short" and "long" road racing championships for the Ozark Association of USA Track & Field. To enter the USATF "race within a race", simply identify yourself as a current USATF member when you register or email firstname.lastname@example.org after you register to let him know you are a member. You will be asked for your membership number when you pick up your race number.
