14th Annual Cotton Creek Pumpkin Run

We are very excited about our 14th Annual Cotton Creek Pumpkin Run on Wednesday, October 2nd!  The students are working hard in Physical Education class to prepare for the run by walking, jogging, and running gradually up to longer distances that vary from 1/2 mile to 1 mile. This event will start and finish at Cotton Creek and will utilize our neighborhood streets.  The Westminster Police Department will be assisting us with traffic control throughout the race.  

Cotton Creek Elementary students with official race numbers will be running the race. All Cotton Creek students must wear the official race numbers provided by the school. Each student must complete the required distance for his/her particular grade level by walking/jogging, or running.   Run times for each grade are as follows:

  • 8:30 - 1st grade
  • 9:00 - Kindergarten
  • 9:30 - 2nd grade
  • 10:10 - 3rd grade
  • 10:40 - 4th grade
  • 11:10 - 5th grade

T-shirts, designed by one of our own 5th graders, are also available for sale to offset costs associated with the run.  Use the link below to order shirts.  Additionally, Cotton Creek students will receive a pumpkin when their grade has finished the run.
