Volunteer: Course Monitor for Race for Open Space | May 27
Do you love spending time in solitude out of doors? Do you enjoy backcountry adventures and helping others have a good experience on the land? Then this is the opportunity for you! Big Sur Land Trust is seeking volunteers to help monitor four in-person trail courses in Carmel Valley. These courses will be open on May 27 from 7:30am to 3pm for registered participants to run during their chosen time slot.
Course monitors are stationed out on the land within the 7am to 3pm timeframe for single-day or half-day time commitments. An orientation will be provided over Zoom the week before. Course monitors will arrive up to an hour before their shift for a day-of orientation and transport or hiking onto the trails, depending on assignment. Course monitors are responsible for radio communications along the lengths of the courses, helping keep runners on the correct path during their race, and helping our team address issues that might come up during the event. This is a special opportunity to immerse yourself in natural areas usually closed to the public while helping make these incredible race courses a success!
