Trail Work

In keeping with a national trend, 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 work form below is required in order for your application to be complete. If a trail work form is not submitted by September 12, 2020, your application will be declined and your fee, less $25.00, will be returned to you.

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. Call Leland Barker at (435) 563-3647 for details. You may work on trails in your area or, if you prefer, and can afford it, you can pay us a fee of $80.00 to have someone work on trails for you.

For Salt Lake City area trail work opportunities: Forest Service trail work projects in the Salt Lake Ranger District are handled through the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation. Interested runners should call the CCF directly to sign up for trail work. You can contact them at (801) 466-6411 or send email to:
