Trail Crew Leader Training
The Dirty 30 Trail Race Series is collaborating with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado to train people to become trail crew leaders. The Dirty 30 needs trail crew leaders to help lead the increasing number of volunteers who are showing up for trail workdays. We are so grateful for this interest and this help! This is a fun and very rewarding way to give back to the trails we all love so much.
- May 2 & 3, 2020 – Evergreen, CO
- May 30 & 3, 2020 – Leadville, CO
- June 6 & 7, 2020 – Golden Gate Canyon State Park
Who: Anyone who is interested can join us for the training, whether you have had experience or not.
Cost: Approximately $75. Those who get trained and lead 2 days of trail work at the Hardrock trail workdays will receive an extra lottery ticket for leading trail work. The idea is you will come back year after year to lead a crew. You will be rewarded with an extra ticket each year that you lead a trail crew.
