Trail Work

Restrictions for 2021: we can take small groups of close friends or family, 5-6 people. Travel in separate vehicles unless wearing N95 masks. Contact us so we can explain all precautions before you come out. Bring alcohol wipes if you need to borrow tools.

Trail work or an equivalent (other volunteering, or $65 Canadian contribution/$49 US ) is required for this race. Trail work may include clearing overgrown bushes, removing downed trees or branches, building or repairing bridges, removing debris, fixing drainage issues, armouring, or doing reconnaissance for BC Parks. This work can be done anywhere. Use this form to submit proof by email. We supply tools on trail work days.

Email us to let us know you are coming. Always check the location before driving; we may need to work on a different trail.  Bring work gloves, wear old clothes. Bring an N95 face mask and hand wipes.
See Crew and Relay Team Driving Instructions for directions.
