The 2011 Perseverance Trail Run goes this Sunday,
Oct. 30. This year’s event, co-sponsored by Extreme Runners and Equilibrium Lifestyle Management, will feature a 3K cross-country course and 11K mountain run
with all proceeds donated to the Cumberland Community Forest Society.
The race starts at 11 a.m. with registration taking place between 9 and 10:15 a.m. at No. 6 Mine Park in Cumberland. “This is a great opportunity to test out your
Halloween costume and there will be a prize for the best costume on race day,” an event spokesperson said.
Pre-race registration is encouraged to decrease lineups on race day and you can receive the regular price of $20 for adults and $15 for kids up until Oct. 28.
Racers can look forward to a fun and challenging trail run, delicious post-race food provided by Thrifty Foods and Mudsharks coffee, along with a big pile of fabulous draw
prizes provided by Brooks, Valhalla, Lotuswear, Ascent Physiotherapy and many more local sponsors. Go to www.perserverancetrailrun.com to view the current list of race sponsors.
The Cumberland Community Forest Society is a group of Cumberland residents dedicated to purchasing local forests for recreational and aesthetic purposes. Their work has ensured the protection of over 150 acres of beautiful forest surrounding the village.
“The annual Perseverance Trail Run is a great way to support this local cause and ensure that more forests are protected for the future,” the spokesperson said.
