Every year we have taken our registered and interested racers on a social run in the woods to familiarize runners to the route and ensure that people are aware that this is a wilderness event. It has been very popular.   We will take you on about half of each of the 13 km and 25 km routes (getting there and back will add on a couple of km). No one will be left behind and this is not a race, it is a social run. Looking forward to seeing you there. Please know you run at your own risk. 

The Cumby Organizing Committee may be required to change the route and reserves the right to do so.
