Naked Pumpkin Run set for Sunday in Fremont

By Doug Alder · October 27th, 2010 · 6 Comments

Fremont is famous for the naked bike riders during the annual Solstice Parade. But another nude tradition is moving into its 4th year.  The Naked Pumpkin Run is scheduled for Halloween day at noon.  Clothing is optional, although you do have to wear a pumpkin on your head.  You have to attend a pumpkin carving party earlier in the day to find out the secret locations of the day run through Fremont followed by a night run around Green Lake. 

In past years, the Fremont runners generally choose to ignore any planned route and simply streak in different directions.  They usually make a stop in front of Lenin’s statue, as seen in the photo above from the 2008 run.  The pumpkin carving party starts at 10am at 3940 Fremont Ave N.  Here’s a copy of the flyer will all the details.
