Trail WorkTrail work or an equivalent (other volunteering, or $65 contribution) 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.
Note: In 2017, the Diamond Creek fire caused damage to the Centennial Trail from Ashnola River Road to Easy Going and possibly beyond. Help will be needed after that assessment is done.
Email us to let us know you are coming. Always check the location before driving; we may need to work on a different trail. If you are available other dates, let us know; we are there almost every weekend.
See Crew and Relay Team Driving Instructions for directions.
Carpoooling? Let me know if you can take others to the trail work site.
