BIB NUMBERS & TIMING CHIPS

REMEMBER, DO NOT FORGET YOUR BIB!! Your race bib is chipped for timing and must be pinned to the FRONT of your shirt. We cannot replace any bibs forgotten at home and everyone must have a bib to participate in the Pumpkin Run.


This event is chip timed which means your race time begins when you cross the start line and ends when you cross the finish line. For this reason, you do not need to crowd the starting line trying to be the first person to take off. Cutoff for official timed results is 8:15 AM for 5K - no exceptions!


Be sure to run across the timing mat under the arch to end your official time.


 

PARKING

Our runners may park in any city parking lot or available street parking. Parking lots located on 1st Street north and south of Main Street. Please view the course map and park outside of the route. Use the walk as a pre race warm up exercise.



  • Pay attention to all posted signs. Parking is at your own risk and protects any valuables you leave in your car.

  • If you live locally, use Uber or Lyft to catch a ride and avoid the parking hassle all together.

  • Carpool...less cars = more parking for others

  • Be courteous to the residents and avoid loud music and talking in the early arrival hours.

  • Do NOT block residential driveways.

  • Do NOT park in the local business parking lots. We are not responsible for any parking tickets or towing.

Pricing and Availability:


The Organizer, in its sole discretion, determines factors such as ticket pricing, availability, availability of individual refunds where an event has not been canceled, and seating locations. Tickets may be sold exclusively through Us or in combination with other inventories from companies not associated with Us. ALHAMBRA PUMPKIN RUN exerts no control or authority over the Organizer, ticket prices, availability, seating locations, individual refunds, or any other companies which may be selling tickets to the Events listed on Our website.

Any tickets purchased on Our website applications are subject to a per-ticket service charge, as shown prior to the time of Your ticket purchase, and, when You pay for Your tickets through JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC., We charge a payment processing fee and, if applicable, a refund processing fee (such per-ticket service charge, payment processing and refund fees collectively, “Fees”).


Ticket Limit:


You will be limited to a certain number of tickets for each Event. The Event listing will contain the maximum number of tickets available to each purchaser, and this number will be verified for each transaction. This policy is intended to discourage other purchasers from engaging in unfair trade practices. If We learn that You are purchasing more than the predetermined number of tickets for an Event and engaging in practices that We, in Our sole discretion, determine to be unfair, We will terminate Your account and cancel Your ticket purchase without prior notice to You.


No Refunds or Exchanges for Event Restrictions or Lost or Stolen Tickets:


Before purchasing Your tickets, it is Your responsibility to carefully review all aspects of the Event, Event restrictions, if any (see the paragraph titled “Event Restrictions” for more information), dates, pricing, charges, and seat selection. Except as specifically stated in the paragraph titled “Canceled or Rescheduled Events,” We will NOT issue any refunds or exchanges because You failed to review this information and We will not issue any refunds for any lost, stolen, destroyed, or damaged tickets, or as under any other circumstances except in the limited cases explicitly described in this Agreement. As previously stated, even if a refund is issued by JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC., Our Fees will be deducted from the refund amount.


Ticket Delivery:


If the Event offers electronic ticket delivery, You will be able to print Your tickets after Your order is processed. These tickets contain a unique barcode/QR code that corresponds to Your order and must be brought with You to the Event. Some Events will also have SMS ticketing which delivers your ticket via SMS message in the form of a QR code that can be validated at the gate for entry. Other Events will allow You to be admitted directly. All of this information will be displayed on the Event listing, so please read and review the Event listing carefully.


Event Admittance:


You understand that You must bring printed tickets and/or the confirmation information with You to the Event. Additionally, while not all Events require identification, on some occasions, government-issued identification will be required by the Organizer. For this reason, We recommend that You bring a valid and current government-issued photo identification (“ID”) with You to the Event. When arriving at an Event, there will only be one entry per ticket. If there are multiple parties attempting to enter using the same ticket, only the first party that arrived with the ticket will be admitted.


Event Restrictions:


Some Events listed on Our website may have certain restrictions. For example, some Events will only admit people over twenty-one (21) years of age or must have a certain affiliation, such as being a student at a particular educational institution. It is Your responsibility to determine if a particular Event restriction applies to You (and Your party, if applicable) and to fulfill all criteria in order to gain admittance. No refunds will be given if You are declined entry to an Event due to a restriction.


Cancelled or Rescheduled Events:


Occasionally, an Event is cancelled or postponed by the Organizer due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. In certain instances, We may also cancel an Event due to problems with the Organizer or the Event listing. If an Event is cancelled, We may post a notice of cancellation on Our Website under the Event listing promptly after We receive notice of the cancellation or otherwise attempt to notify You. If this happens, and if You have paid JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC. directly for Your ticket, We will issue a refund as quickly as possible after We have notice of the cancellation. If You learn that an Event is cancelled, moved, or rescheduled, please contact Us at Our customer support address set forth below for information on receiving a refund. Please include Your name, the Event, and Your confirmation number. PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, IF YOU HAVE PAID THE ORGANIZER FOR YOUR TICKET (AND NOT JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC.), JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC. HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR, OR CONTROL OVER, THE ISSUANCE OF ANY REFUND.


Where you have paid for Your ticket through ALHAMBRA PUMPKIN RUN, any refunds issued to You will be provided only after Our receipt of payment of the refunded amount from the Organizer. Any refund issued by JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC. will be applied to the credit or debit card or other payment account You used to purchase Your ticket; JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC. shall not be responsible if you fail to receive Your refund because your account information on file with JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC. is no longer valid or up-to-date. Any refunds of JAYVEE EMPIRE, INC.’s Fees will not be included in a refund from Us. Big Tickets does not assume responsibility to make refunds to any person other than the person who ordered the tickets as shown by Our records, regardless of whether or not the tickets purchased by You have been transferred in accordance with this Agreement.

If you are purchasing tickets for Yourself and on behalf of other parties, You, as the primary ticket holder, may resell or transfer these tickets to the other parties. When arriving at an event, there will only be one entry provided per ticket. If there are multiple parties attempting to enter using the same ticket, only the first party that arrived with the ticket will be admitted. It is Your sole responsibility to comply with any applicable federal, state, or local laws that relate to the resale, transfer, or other disposition of tickets. You are solely responsible, as well, for ensuring that any transferees of Your tickets are eligible to attend the Event and comply with any applicable restrictions for the Event (e.g., age restrictions).
