This event takes place at Station Plaza of Canal Place in the historical Downtown Cumberland, MD. Run/Walk starts and finishes in this location while the course takes place on the beautiful Great Allegheny Passage. A water station will be provided by the gas station in the Narrows for runners to have on the way up and back. 

PRIZE MONEY for Overall Top 3 Male & Female finishers!! 1st: $250;  2nd: $125;  3rd: $75.  Male/Female Masters winners will receive NEW shoes donated by Personal Best Athletics!! Prizes to Top 3 Male/Female winners in the following age groups: under 13, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.

Register on/before April 27th in order to guarantee an event t-shirt! We cannot guarantee them after that date.Proceeds from the race after expenses will be either donated to the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia chapter of the ALS Association, or to local warriors in need of assistance for home improvements, cost of treatment, etc. Unfortunately, no cure exists for this disease, nor a treatment that stops or reverses it. Half of all people affected with ALS live at least three or more years after diagnosis. Twenty percent live five years or more. Up to ten percent will live more than ten years. According to the alsworldwide.org, annual care for an ALS patient surpasses $200,000. Together, we can make a difference!

HOTEL DISCOUNT: The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Cumberland is graciously offering participants a $40 discount! Please call 1-800-MARRIOTT and let them know you're with the ALS Run group. Reservations must be made on or before 4/20!
