About This Activity

Come run your fastest 15K ever.  And quite possibly a 10K PR as well, on the way, in this Western Maryland tradition now in its 32nd year.  Runners are bused from downtown Cumberland to the start in Mount Savage. Course is point-to-point with a nearly uniform elevation drop of 475 feet in the first 10K.  The leaves are changing as you run a gradual downhill, through the Narrows, and into historic Cumberland.  Awards and door prizes are generous, with age group awards in 10 year increment age groups.   Race has served as Maryland RRCA State 15K Championship race for several years.  USATF Certificate MD11011JS, recertified in 2011.  Races utilize T.R.A.C. Services, LLC,

5K is flat & fast!  The 5K is a modified out and back course in Cumberland.  5K ends at the 15K finish line.  Awards will be to top three overall and in 10-year increment age groups.  USATF Certificate MD11012JS, recertified in 2011.  Finish of both races is on the Downtown Mall, with bountiful post-race refreshments.

Win With Wellness Walk will be held in partnership with Western Maryland Health System.  This event will also be on the downtown mall.  There is no fee for this but registration is required. Contact for more information (lots of family members like to be in this while while the runner in the family runs!)

Whatever event, entry includes GAR apparel to all entrants.  Race is also run in conjunction with downtown festivities.  There is also a “Little Allegany Run,” with no entry fee. With ribbons and treats to all, and same finish line the runners use.
