Description

This is the 3rd 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!  


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). 


The start/finish will still be in front of the stage in the Canal Place Festival Grounds as it was in 2020.  .   


There are two good routes coming from the East: 1) I68 to Exit 43B (MD51/Industrial Boulevard/Airport). There will parking on your left under I-68. 2) I68 to Exit 43C (Downtown), turn left of W Harrison St, cross intersection into Canal Place. Public parking is on the right & overflow parking is available is also available on the SW corner of Baltimore St & Mechanic St (one block west of the Canal Place entrance).
