Trail Work/Volunteer Requirements

We believe in giving back to the trails in the form of trail work and volunteering. 

Where to donate? We recommend donating to the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, our charity of choice for the extensive work they do to maintain, build and educate on the Tahoe Rim Trail. Each year the Tahoe 200 donates money to the TRTA in the name of the race. Donate here

All entrants in the event are required to complete 8 hours of trail work or race volunteering

Submitting your trail work or race volunteering:

We do not require you to submit trail work/volunteering. Trail work or race volunteering is required each year for entrants to run the event however, work is done on the honor system. Thank you for giving back to the trails and community!

Where do I get my trail work/volunteering done? What constitutes trail work?

You may use any trail work you have done that is organized by trail work groups, races, or other organizations like mountain biking clubs, state parks, and the forest service. Trail work is any work that is done to maintain the trails: building bridges, creating water bars, building and maintaining trail, clearing brush and trees, etc

Race Volunteering: You may volunteer for a race instead of doing trail work. Volunteering consists of race volunteering for any official race for 8 hours or more. 

What happens if I don’t do my volunteering? 

We require trail work to be done on the honor system.

I’m signed up for both the Bigfoot 200 and the Tahoe 200, do I need to do 8 or 16 hrs of volunteering?

You only need to do 8 hours.
