Event Information
The Craig Cup Run for Life is a 5K cross-country running race for recreational runners and held annually at Twin Brook Recreation Area in Cumberland, Maine. The Craig Cup welcomes runners of all abilities and especially encourages teams of friends, co-workers, and training partners. If you've not run cross country before, this is the place to start!

The race is held in memory of father and daughter Rob and Katie Craig from Cumberland Maine. Rob and Katie were both dedicated runners and cross country skiers. Despite leading rich lives full of academic, artistic, and athletic accomplishment, both were overcome by mental illness and took their own lives. The Craig Cup Run for Life represents a chance to memorialize Rob and Katie through a sport they both cherished. For participants who never knew them personally, this is an opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of mental illness; to sympathize with those afflicted; and to raise funds for organizations committed to suicide prevention and crisis intervention.

Proceeds

All proceeds from the Craig Cup will go to Opportunity Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to delivering a full spectrum of social services and mental health care to individuals that begins prenatally and continues throughout the life span.
