Trail Work

In keeping with an ethos of giving back, the Bear 100 requires participants to render eight hours of public service to their local forest service or park service in constructing and/or maintaining trails in their area, or to an ultrarunning race as an aid station volunteer or similar (not pacing!). Any type of volunteer service is accepted as long as it is approved by local officials or the RD. The trail (or volunteer) work form below is required in order for your application to be complete. If a trail work form is not submitted by September 12, 2022, your application will be declined and $150 will be returned to you via check.

If you live close enough to come and work on the trails of the BEAR 100, we highly recommend it. We have tentatively scheduled to do trail work this summer.

Tentative Dates and times:

Friday June 17th 6:30am – 2:30pm

Saturday Aug 6th 6:30am – 2:30pm

Email the RD for more details. You may work on trails in your area or, if you prefer, and can afford it, you can pay us a fee of $100.00 to have someone work on trails for you.
