Cumberland Fair197 Blanchard RdCumberland Center, ME04021 Map

Firebird Trail Race is a challenging and wicked fun 13M & 50K race, that runs on donations, positive vibes, and a technical course in Cumberland, Maine.

Our goal with this race is to celebrate community and accomplish great feats together, cheering each other to the finish, for the first time or the millionth time.

Unlike other races, to compete here you must donate to a non-profit of your choice in addition to paying the low cost registration fee. Instead of some mega race conglomerate taking the profits, we ask that you pay it forward and contribute to a non-profit that aligns with your values. The donation must be made between September 18, 2021 and September 2, 2022, and we must have proof of the donation (a receipt, confirmation letter from the recipient, image of your check) by September 2, 2022 in order to confirm entry. We would appreciate donations of at least $40, with a $20 minimum requirement.

Start Times
- 50K - 7:30 AM
- 13 Miler - 8:00 AM

THE COURSE:

It's technical and challenging, with lots of rocks and roots on mostly single track trail. The course is largely on the Cross-Falmouth Trail through Knights Pond, Rines Forest, Hadlock Forest, Blackstrap Hill Preserve, and Lowell Preserve. *The 2022 course will vary slightly from 2021, with a new starting area at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds*.

- 13M Course: Starts at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds in Cumberland and runs through Knights Pond Preserve then through Rines Forest and back to the Fairgrounds.
