FL50s Trail Clearing - Help Needed Sunday June 23rd

After clearing 10-ish miles of the Finger Lakes 50s course, there are still some areas that need help.

We’ll be doing a full course run-through on Saturday after (hopefully) most of the thunderstorms and bad weather have come through, and are looking for 2 volunteers with powerful weed eaters or an older lawn mower to help clear a few spots on Sunday, June 23rd, at 11am.

Please leave a comment if you can come to help out, along with any equipment or tools you’ll be bringing with you.

We anticipate this taking 2 hours or less and all help is appreciated.

We’ll meet where the South Beach Aid Station will be during the race (https://maps.app.goo.gl/XhpouPtVL2Gt45DTA) to review what needs to be done and then head out from there.

Please plan on bringing/wearing pants, long sleeve shirt, gloves, eye/ear/face protection, water, and anything else you might need.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment, and I’ll get back to you. Thanks!

If you don’t have equipment but still want to come out and help, that’s fine too - there are always branches to move/cut and small improvements to be made with hand tools :slight_smile:

Edit: changed meet up time to 11am to prevent conflicts with volunteering at the Gorges Ithaca Half.

Adam I hate to do this to you. Am I entered in the 50K?

@shiggyrunner I don’t see you on the list.
