Pumpkinman Triathlon and Running Festival Celebrates 15 Years!

August 24, 2021

All new Running Festival added in for 2021!

August 24, 2021 – On September 11-12, 2021, The Pumpkinman Triathlon and Running Festival will celebrate 15 years of local racing in South Berwick, Maine! Over the past 15 years, Pumpkinman has produced an award winning Sprint, Olympic, and Half distance triathlon. This year, an all-new Running Festival will be added to the festivities.

The Pumpkinman Running Festival will have something for everyone.  Featuring five different distances, runners can be sure there is something for them.  The line up includes:

1-mile Fun Run
American Pumpkin Pi 3.14 miler
The Pumpkin Jenni 8.675309 miler
The Pumpkinman Half Marathon
15 miler to celebrate 15 years

Following the running events will be the famous Harvest Feast with pumpkin pie, pumpkin whoopie pies and a lively after party with live music.  “I wanted to create an opportunity for more people to be able to experience the thrill of running down the Pumpkinman finish chute,” said owner and race director Rachel Martin.  “Crossing a finish line is such an empowering feeling, and this new event schedule allows for more of the community to be involved.”

On Saturday September 11, 2021, the Pumpkinman Triathlon Festival will host the Sprint and Olympic (intermediate) distance triathlons along with relay teams and an Olympic AquaBike.  “I am so excited to be able to celebrate the 15 year anniversary in person,” continued Rachel.  “Last year I kept events going virtually because I didn’t want to see my athletes give up on their goals.  To be able to see people happy and completing the goals they have set out for themselves will be one of the highlights of my year.  And you can be sure we will produce a safe event for you this fall.”
