Mountain Maryland Trail's premier fundraising event, the 3M Challenge will feature a race between two of Mountain Maryland's oldest mechanized modes of transportation - the WMSR train and the legs of a cyclist.
The event will highlight the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP), Western Maryland Scenic Railroad (WMSR), towns of Cumberland, MD and Frostburg, MD, scenic beauty of Allegany County, and healthy outdoor lifestyle. The Great Allegany Passage between Cumberland and Frostburg is the only location in the country with 15.6 miles of side-by-side bike trail and scenic train. The 3M Challenge is usually in the fall of the year.
