Cross Border Challenge

The Cross Border Challenge Race Series is a series of quality race events scheduled around Cumberland County between the months of April to October. There is something for everyone: 5K, 10K, runners, walkers, children’s races, beautiful scenery, great friends, medals, awards, surprises and so much more.

The Cross Border Challenge series races are an initiative of the Cumberland Y Service Club.

Net profits from the Cross Border Challenge Series Races go to support local charitable community organizations.

The Amherst Y's Men's Club was chartered in 1962 and has been an important part of the YMCA and community since that time. In 2009 we changed our name to the Cumberland Y Service Club to reflect who we are and what we do: men and women serving the Cumberland Y.
