The 3rd Annual Pumpkin Launch, Run and Walk at Jubilee Farm Fall Festival

   The Pumpkin Launch and Fun Run! is a 5k and an 8k run and family walk, to be held October 15 , 11a.m., at Jubilee Farm in Carnation.
   This flat and scenic course meanders through the Carnation farm valley on West Snoqualmie River Road.
   The 5k and 8k start at the same time. All runners head south into the Tall Chief Golf Course, turn around and back-track north; the 5k'ersfinish at the farm and the 8k'ers keep going north to Carnation Golf Coursewhere they turn around and head back to the farm to finish.
   Following the run will be these fun family activities: face painting, hayrides to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin bowling, and the Pumpkin Launch contest.
   This entails launching a pumpkin with a very large launcher (an oversized stationary slingshot) and competing for distance. The record stands at 157 feet (give or take a few pumpkin seeds).
   The views are spectacular and the sunflowers and pumpkins are at their peak.
   Participants can register on-line at or in-store registration will begin the second week of September at FastLady Sports (all locations), FootZone (Redmond and Issaquah) and Sound Sports (Madison Street, Downtown Seattle).
