The Cumby 2024
Run for the hills in 2024!
Hello Cumby fans,
Thank you for checking our website! We are stoked to host The Cumby on May 4, 2024. This will be year nine of the Cumby.
Thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm for our race. If you are new to The Cumby we know you will have a great time enjoying our hospitality and a choice of one of our races. We will continue to have 3 races: Quarter Cumby – 7.5 km, Half Cumby – 15 km and Full Cumby – 25 km.
The Cumberland Hills always provide a lot of well…hills, and our route this year will be completely runnable. The start of the race will provide for competitors to spread out before heading up…you know, a hill. There will be a few changes from 2023. All to be revealed as we get closer to race day. We want to give you the date as a heads up to plan your 2024 racing calendar.
We plan to meet at Race Central at Village Park once again under the cover of those magnificent Douglas Fir trees.
Of course our commitment to the Cumberland Community Forest never wains. We were so pleased to hand over a big fat cheque last May to the CCF to the tune of $43,500. This great contribution from our sponsors, participants and donors brings us to a total of $177,500 over the eight years of the Cumby.
We look forward to seeing you on race day in May. Year Nine. We hope you will join us.
Our organizing committee is very eager to welcome youth and families to our races and particularly to our 7.5 km race. We keep the registration fees low for all youth under 19 years for the Quarter Cumby. We are committed to supporting the next generation of trail runners and racers.
Can’t wait to see you in person on May 4, 2024! Registration opens in February.
