Perseverance Trail Run!

Just over 1 week to go until the 2012 Perseverance Trail Run kicks off on Sunday, October 28th! This years event, co-directed by Extreme Runners and Equilibrium Lifestyle Management will once again feature a 3k cross-country romp and 10.5k mountain run in the beautiful forest trails of Cumberland. This race is run entirely by volunteers and supported by generous community partners with all proceeds going directly to the Cumberland Community Forest Society. Last year, racers, volunteers and supporters of the race were able to raise $5000 for the CCFS!

The race starts at 11:00am at No 6 Mine Park in Cumberland, with racer check in open from 9:00-10:30am. Please note there will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION THIS YEAR!  Pre-race registration is required for this years event, which also has a cap of 300 racers. Participants can sign up at the regular price of $20 for adults and $15 for kids up until October 26th before late fees kick in.

Racers can look forward to a fun and challenging trail run, delicious post race food provided by Thrifty Foods and massage by donation with Functional Massage Therapy. All racers will be entered into a post race draw for fabulous prizes provided by Brooks, Valhalla, Riding Fool Hostel, Ascent Physiotherapy, Island Pilates & Fitness, Dodge City Cycles and many more local sponsors. Go to to view the current list of race sponsors!

The Cumberland Community Forest Society is a group of residents of the Village of Cumberland dedicated to purchase local forests for recreational and aesthetic purposes. Their work has ensured the protection of over 150 acres of beautiful forest surrounding the Village of Cumberland. The annual Perseverance Trail Run is a great way to support this local cause and ensure that more forests are protected for the future. 
This is a great opportunity to test out your Halloween costume and there will be a prize for the best costume on race day!  Costume contest will be just before Pre-Race Announcements this year, around we can check you out before you drag your costume through the mud for 10k!

Pick up registration forms at Extreme Runners, 436 5th st, or go to to check out all the details and register online!

PS we are in need of a few more course marshal's so please email if you cannot race but would like to be a part of this years event!
