GMHA Competitive & Pleasure Trail Volunteers

Distance Days, Featuring the 83rd Annual 100-Mile Ride, August 30-September 1, 2019

This 3-day trail riding extravaganza is an ECTRA-sanctioned competitive trail ride and pleasure ride.  Learn more about competitive trail at www.ectra.org. There will be 100-, 75-, 60-, 40-, 35-, 25-, and 15-mile divisions. There will also be pleasure rides each day. The day starts early, with breakfast at 5:30 and riders starting at 6:30am. Volunteers are needed for the pre-ride vetting on Thursday, August 29 and all day on August 30-September 1 to serve as timers, scribes, stewards, pulse/respiration takers and more. We also need volunteer help for our social events - the 100-Mile Banquet on Thursday, August 29, and the 1930'sGarden Party/Open House on Sunday, September 1.

All of our event day volunteers receive breakfast and/or lunch depending on your shift. Very few tasks require prior experience. We will train you!
