CABLE, Wisc., March 15, 2017—During its thirty-five year history, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival has maintained a sustainable and responsible trail use focus. These core values coupled with strong financial support insure that the area trails are left in great shape for future use. With a continued leave no trace directive, GU Energy Labs, the pioneer and-leading brand of energy gels today, returns to sponsor the event weekend’s trail cleanup effort.
The GU Cleanup Crew will be on hand to see that anything left behind is picked up and packed out. This team of event volunteers will carefully sweep fifty-six miles of linear race course following the traverse of 3,100 riders.
As a volunteer GU Cleanup Crew member, you too can join this commendable advocacy effort. Sixteen volunteers will be selected from those who best complete the statement, “I want to be on the GU Cleanup Crew because…”
And, because a job well done deserves an appreciative thank you, each volunteer GU Crew member will receive an assortment of GU Energy Labs products that may include GU Energy Gel, GU Brew, GU Chomps and other GU premiums. In further recognition of the noble cleanup efforts, each GU Crew member also will qualify for a guaranteed reserved registration for the 2018 Chequamegon event.
Those interested in one of the cleanup crew spots should mail or email a short statement by July 1 to the Chequamegon race office contacts below. Team members will be selected from the submissions received. All applicants will be notified of the 2017 crew selections by July 15.
As the event weekend draws near, those selected will receive further instructions about their specific race day cleanup assignment. On race day, the crew members will be assigned one of three trail cleanup sections insuring that the entire trail is left in good shape following the race passing.
This is a great opportunity to participate in a noteworthy Chequamegon Festival advocacy effort that does something good for the area trails.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2017, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival events are presented by Trek and produced by Chanhassen, Minn. based Life Time Fitness.
