Is there a limit to the number of people and riders allowed at this event? A friend of mine had this concern. Larry

I don't know if there is a limit but if there was, it would be a LOT. The place is huge. The most I've seen is probably around 700-800 and that wasn't busy.  I heard of one a long time ago there was somewhere around 3000. Don't know if that is true or not.

Asmart's answer is pretty spot-on.

We don't have a cut off per-say and we anticapate around ~1000 people this year.

Past events were advertised to be limited to 1500, but we now realize that with everybody jumping on the bandwagon with mud parks poping up everywhere, our particapation levels have since hovered around the 1000 mark, with muddy/wet conditions bringing the larger crowds, and this year is pretty wet, so it is sure to be a great run.

Most people who have been to the Pumpkin Run, will return every year and bring a friend.

If you have never been to the Pumpkin Run, you owe it to yourself to come and see what a real night "riding" event is all about.

8 days and counting.........Only 6 days left to take advantage of the $10 pre-registration discount at apollomotorcycleclub.com

I had a good time too Carlos. June and I enjoyed riding with you and your cousin.

But I think that we made a wrong turn and ended up at Mudmuckers. 

I couldn't find the showers or ATV wash section either.

AMC, could you please put some toilets around the whole area next time and not just in one place. When you get older, you will find that they need to be closer to where the people camp.  Grin

Also you need to put up bigger and better signs on the exit gate that say  " Do not enter, one way only". We had to pass at least 60 riders that went in the wrong gate. I don't know how they got through the course as all of the orange arrows were at their backs. I'm talking about the day course.

I really enjoyed the night ride and had a lot of fun! AMC did a good job marking the trails. I plan on attending again next time.

One other thing that I learned this weekend is that my little blue Hyundai will go anywhere! Mud is no problem at all!



That is, if it's being pulled by a tractor!!!   



It took me longer to get the mud off of the car than it did the ATV.

The toilets and showers were in the main camp area.  Unfortunately, due to the unforeseen impact of Hurricane Sandy, the main camp area became the mud pit. The showers and toilets were where people would usually camp but no one was able to get out that far except a select few with the vehicles that could make it.

The showers were where the usually were except this year they were surrounded by mud! The wash station is usually right by the showers as well but I did not see it this year.  I honestly don't think a wash station would have been of any use anyways considering no matter where you went, you had to travel through mud to get back to wherever you parked.

Glad to  hear you made it out, Larry! I was a little worried you'd be stuck there till the Rabbit Run! 

I had a great time even though it was cut short due to a punctured radiator (not mine) but its probably a good thing because I am sore today.  We made the unfortunate mistake of riding the north trail when it got dark and it was a complete mess but I had a blast!
