COVID-19 Policy: We're only days away from race day! The race is still on! We are excited to provide a nostalgic physical race on August 29th! We are diligently seeking ways to comply with all federal/state/local in order to conduct a modified physical race if necessary (e.g., staggered start times, max group sizes, etc).  If for some unforeseen reason a physical race is not possible on August 29 participants will still have the option to 1) receive a refund, 2) participate on a postponed date to be announced, or 3) donate your registration fee.

Additional COVID updates:

  1. All registrations (even on race day) must be online to avoid material exchanges. 
  2. A late fee will also be placed on registrations made on race day to strongly encourage registrations to be complete prior to 12:00AM 8/29/20 to avoid in-person questions, lines, connection problems, etc.
  3. A COVID waiver for FCA must be completed by all race participants using this link,  This link was also added to the general waiver in the online registration as a reminder while registering.

This is the 2nd Annual Race hosted by the Allegany County FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) to generate scholarship funding to send more students to local and regional FCA camps.  Students that attend these camps often have life changing experiences, so we do not want cost to prevent someone from attending!  In this year's race, runners will have a 10K run option, in addition to the 5K run and 1K fun run/ walk options. We are looking for competitive runners as well as casual runners/walkers for our 1K. All ages are welcome and encouraged!  Bring the whole family for a fun time during and after the race!

The race's name (Narrow Way) has dual meaning.  The race course follows the GAP (Great Allegheny Passage) Trail through a steep sided valley west of Cumberland called 'The Narrows'.  Narrow Way also references the path to eternal life, "You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it" (Matthew 7:13-14 NLT).
