IT'S TIME TO start preparing for this year's Perseverance Trail Run

Perseverance Trail Run goes Oct. 27

ELM offers workshop to prepare participants for annual fundraising event

Grab your calendar and save the date – this year’s Perseverance Trail Run goes Oct. 27.

The goal of this year’s Perseverance Trail Run is once again to raise funds for the Cumberland Community Forest Society to help them purchase and protect forest lands in the Cumberland area for all to enjoy now and in the future.

Racers can look forward to two awesome courses that will take them through the CCFS lands in historic Cumberland, including a fun 3k cross country romp and an epic 10k mountain run. Last year, with the generous support of the community, the race raised $5,000 for the CCFS to help them protect the Cumberland forest.

Racers can go to the Perseverance Trail Run website for free online training plans, maps of the course and to check out the list of community sponsors, photos and results from previous years. Be sure to sign up online for the Perseverance e- newsletter and ‘like’ Perseverance Trail Run on Facebook for all of the most up-to-date information.

Want to learn the course inside and out? Need to bump up your Perseverance trail running fitness before race day? Looking for trail racing and hill climbing/descending tips? Then join the 2013 Equilibirum Lifestyle Management (ELM) Perseverance Adventure Running Clinic and get all of this and more.

This eight-week program, coached by Sarah Seads and her team of ELM ‘Fearless Leaders’ kicks off on Thursday, Sept.  5. Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to get in shape and prepare for this years Perseverance Trail Race. Go to www.elmhealth.com to register for this training clinic before Sept. 3 to reserve your spot.

This race has sold out two years in a row so be sure to register early to avoid disappointment. There is no race day registration and when all 350 spots are gone – they are gone!

Sign up for the Perseverance Trail Run online or head down to Extreme Runners, 436 Fifth St. and get your form in before Sept. 27 to get the deal on early bird race fees and order your special technical race tees.
