Grab your calendar and save the date- this years Perseverance Trail Run is coming in just 2 months on October 27th 2013! 

the goal of this years 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 $4000 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 ELM Perseverance Adventure Running Clinic and get all of this and more. This 8 week program, coached by Sarah Seads and her team of ELM 'Fearless Leaders' kicks off on Thursday, September 5th.
