We are getting super stoked about tomorrow's race and looking forward to seeing you all in Cumberland on Sunday morning!

The forecast is looking like we will get a classic, wet, fall trail run on Sunday so leave your white socks at home! Our list of registered racers is growing and we are anticipating another big turnout for this years event. Thank you for your support of the community fundraising event- see you soon!

PRE RACE NUMBER PICK UP: New this year, we are offering an opportunity for you to pick up your race number TODAY between 1 and 5pm at Extreme Runners 436 5th st. Our friendly volunteers will greet you at the store, confirm your registration and give you your race number and t-shirt if you pre-ordered one. This means you get to avoid the long line up on Sunday!

RACE DAY DETAILS: Race starts at 11:00am with pre-race registration taking place from 9:00-10:30am and pre-race announcements at 10:45am. No. 6 Mine Park behind the Cumberland Rec Centre on Dunsmuir. Park in the gravel parking lot beside the rec centre and walk to the park for race central.

FUNDRAISER: All proceeds go directly to the Cumberland Community Forest Society! Thank you for supporting this great local cause and for giving back to the forest lands so that we can continue to enjoy them in the future!

Maps & T-Shirt sales on race day will also go towards the CCFS and you can meet members of the Forest Society to learn more about this great cause.

Once again we have had overwhelming support from our local businesses in the community and there are some amazing draw prizes to be won! Draw prizes include everything from Darkside Chocolates to a night at the Riding Fool Hostel - go to the perseverance website for a complete list of sponsors: .

Thrifty Foods is once again generously providing all of the post race munchies for our racers! You can look forward to a great spread including hot soup as well as fresh coffee from Darla and Bruce at Mudsharks coffee!

TOP 3 finishers in each category will be awarded ribbons for their efforts and there will be a special prize for the BEST COSTUME!!

Enjoy a post-race massage by donation from new sponsors Cumberland Massage Therapy!

WOAH! It is going to be a great day in Cumberland! Hope to see you there!
