VOLUNTEERS are the foundation upon which the entire sport of ULTRA running has been built and maintained!  Volunteer efforts have and will continue to enrich the lives of all who participant, past-present-and future!  You wouldn't be reading this page unless you are a person who likes giving to others, and helping them to succeed!  Folks on the 'outside' often view ultra distance running as a 'solo' activity.  Runners surely are out on the trails for endless hours, countless miles, and mostly alone.  Yet, each runner depends on the often unseen kindnesses of volunteersVolunteers who mark the trails, shop for foods & prepare the banquets & buffet, assist at race check in, staff the aid stations & water drops, assist with safety at road crossings, with radio communication, on course safety with trail sweeping & equestrian patrols, etc., etc., & etc. !  Volunteer involvement often extends over several hours, days, weeks, and longer!  Yet, volunteering is loaded with fun and great synergistic joy!

Old West Trails welcomes your interest in volunteering!   New volunteers are teamed up with experienced volunteers, so "on the job" training is a fun experience and very helpful to all the runners' success. 

All volunteers receive an Old West Trails commemorative shirt and dine freely at Old West's famous Chuck Wagon.
