Perseverance Trail Run goes Oct. 27
Just over two weeks to go until the 2013 Perseverance Trail Run kicks off on Sunday, Oct. 27!
This year's 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. Over the last two years alone, racers, volunteers and supporters of the race were able to raise $9,000 for the CCFS.
The race starts at 11 a.m. at No. 6 Mine Park in Cumberland, with racer check-in open from 9-10 a.m. Pre-race registration is required for this year's event, which has a cap of 350 racers. There are less than 50 spot remaining so racers are encouraged to sign up asap to secure their spot on the start line. This is a great opportunity to test out your Halloween costume and there will be a prize for the best costume on race day.
Racers can look forward to a fun and challenging trail run, delicious post-race food provided by Thrifty Foods a post-race draw for prizes. All racers will be entered to win fabulous prizes provided by Brooks, Island Mountain Rides, Riding Fool Hostel, Darkside Chocolates, Riders Pizza, Dodge City Cycles and many more local sponsors.

The annual Perseverance Trail Run is a great way to support this local cause and ensure that more forests are protected for the future.
