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 35th 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. USATF Certificate MD11011JS.

Starting this year, the Great Allegany Run will be conducted in partnership between the Queen City Striders and RacePacket. This includes all scoring and race management services. Proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity.

You will find that the GAR remains as it has since it started, a low-key but well-run event, worth the trip whether you are coming from throughout the Mid-Atlantic or from right around the corner.


5k: 5K is flat & fast! The 5K is an out-and-back course in Cumberland. Awards in each race will be to top three overall and in 10-year increment age groups. USATF Certificate MD11012JS.
