The Comox Valley Road Runners (CVRR) are hosting a 25k Full Cumby and a new 13k Half Cumby trail race!
The Cumby 2018 will take place in the hills above the picturesque and historic village of Cumberland. Where once it was the largest Chinese community north of San Francisco and was supported by coal mining, in the last decade Cumberland has developed a new reputation as a mecca for mountain biking and outdoor adventure.
The Cumby takes advantage of an extensive system of bike trails. The route also includes parts of the Vancouver Island Spine Trail and provides scenic vistas of Baynes Sound and Georgia Strait.
The race starts in No. 6 Mine Heritage Park in downtown Cumberland and proceeds through the Cumberland Community Forest and adjacent working forests. The race route takes a steady climb through rich timberland and reclaimed logging areas. CVRR promises you a fast, technical race that is predominantly single track, with tough but runnable uphill climbs, stream crossings, narrow bridges and fast descents. The Half Cumby will follow the Full Cumby route to the half way point before a quick romp to the finish line.
Visit our website www.thecumby.ca for full details of the 13k and 25k events.
Why are we doing this?? The race is a fundraiser for the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS). All net proceeds go to the CCFS. Check out the YouTube video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxP3t4J_7ew to see the monumental efforts of the CCFS to purchase and preserve large tracts of pristine forest on Cumberland's perimeter. We are thrilled you have chosen to support this cause.
Only 300 spots available in the 13k event and the 25k is capped at 200 runners.

All Cumby particpants under 19 on race day must have parental consent, and parents/guardians must sign a waiver on race day.
