The Cumby 2021
May 1 @ 8:00 am - May 9 @ 5:00 pm PDT
A Message from our Good Friends at The Cumby!
“We are hosting a race. Its an unsupported race on a marked trail near Cumberland BC. Its virtual by the fact that there is no particular start time or date except that you will run it between May 1 to 9 at the time and date of your choosing. We know it will look different than our usual race as we work through the details. Its a fundraiser for a very worthy cause. We know it is a bit of a distraction as we all wait patiently for the time we can gather and have a mass start. That time is not now and we cannot gather yet.
Its a pandemic year and our first priority is to keep you safe from being exposed to the virus or sharing the virus with others. So we will be strictly attending to the current BC Public Health Orders (PHO).
This year is special. We want to focus on the lands and wetspaces that runners have helped the Cumberland Community Forest Society preserve. Celebrate This Land is our theme for 2021. Our race routes (there are two!) will highlight and show off Coal Creek Historic Park and Japanese Town and the recent acquisitions up Perserverance Creek and through some of the older sections of the forest. The 14 km route has 335 meters of elevation gain. The 7 km route has a lovely little “short snapper” at the end too with 137 meters of gain. Post your results and see if you get 1st, 2nd or 3rd place age category hand made medals. Just like we normally have (we will send them to you in the mail). But wait for it. We also have the Cumby Combo. What is that? You get to run both routes within the 9 days and post your results on Race Roster. Special prizing for the Combo winners. “
