Perseverance Run full; still room for more at post-race party


The race is full, but there’s still room at the post-race party.

That’s the status for this year’s Perseverance Trail Run, the annual fundraiser for the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) that goes this Sunday, Oct. 26 in Cumberland.

Sarah Seads of Equilibrium Lifestyle Management, who is co-directing this 10th anniversary run along with Extreme Runners, says the race sold out at 350 racers early last week. “We have a wait list on the go via

“There are still tickets for the Perseverance After Party for the Forest available at,” Seads noted.

The race starts at 11 a.m. at No. 6 Mine Park, with racer check-in from 9-10 a.m. Runners are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume for a chance to win a prize. The post-race party goes 1-5 p.m. at the CRI with a gourmet chili cook-off, silent auction, Halloween Circus Show and more.

This year, 100 per cent of all funds raised at both events is being matched by a “Forest Fairy,” so the CCFS will have double the usual donation to help them preserve local forests.


The CCFS’s work so far has ensured the protection of over 150 acres of forest surrounding the Village of Cumberland.
