Description:

in the hills above the picturesque and historic Village of Cumberland, BC. This year’s event includes our signature 25 km race and new this year the 1/2 Cumby, a 13km race. Both races will include plenty of hills, single track trails and scenic vistas of Baynes Sound and Georgia Strait. The event starts at No. 6 Mine Heritage Park in downtown Cumberland and proceeds through the Cumberland Community Forest and adjacent working forests. The 25 km route encompasses a steady climb through rich timberland and reclaimed logging areas, then leads runners through winding singletrack. For those interested in a shorter but still challenging race, the 13 km course will provide runners with a variety of terrain, trail surfaces, and views. The Cumby is an event of the Comox Valley Road Runners, it is a wilderness event and participants should expect technical trails with numerous stream crossings, narrow bridges, and quick ups and downs. Net proceeds of the Cumby go to the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS). Online registration opens February 14th, 2018. http://thecumby.ca
