THE CUMBY is celebrating its SEVENTH year in 2022 as a fundraising event in support of the Cumberland Community Forest Society’s efforts to purchase and preserve large tracts of beautiful mature coastal forest surrounding the historic Village of Cumberland. Thanks to the generous support of their runners and sponsors they’ve donated OVER $102,000 to our land protection work!
Their race theme this year is “Run For The Hills”. On May 7th runners celebrate the Cumberland Community Forest that they’ve all helped acquire and preserve.
The Cumby was conceived in 2016 as an opportunity to contribute to the efforts of the Cumberland Community Forest Society to protect even more areas of this much loved trail network from logging. Many Comox Valley Road Runner members enjoy the Cumberland trail network, 500 acres of which are part of a protected forested nature park thanks to the efforts of the CCFS.
