Less than 50 spaces remain in the 14th annual Perseverance Trail Run, Oct. 28 in Cumberland.
The race includes a 3k Cross Country Romp and an 11k Mountain Run. The Romp showcases the protected Cumberland Community Forest trails including a few ups and downs, twists and turns and maybe even a little water. This course is perfect for those looking to sample cross country running, including walkers and the little ones. The Mountain Run is for those looking for a running challenge complete with steep climbs, flowing descents, technical single-track and breathtaking vistas. If ready to challenge your trail running stamina, this course will surely take you to new ‘heights’.
The race has been organized by volunteers and supported by businesses since 2004. The goal is to raise funds to purchase and protect the forest through the Cumberland Community Forest Society. Over the past 12 years, the race has generated over $550,000 for the CCFS through racer donations, sponsors and the CCFS Perseverance Party for the Forest events.
Those looking to improve their trail racing skills and train on the 11k race course can join coach Sarah at the ELM Perseverance Adventure Running Clinic and learn the course inside and out. FMI: www.elmhealth.com
