HPRS Trail Work Day #1

Sat May 20, 2023 USFS La Veta Field Office

HPRS Trail Work in La Veta, CO


Background: The Human Potential Running Series (HPRS) owned and operated by Human Potential LLC,has a mission of not only building a better ultra community for our runners, but to improve the relationships between ultra running and the land managers we work with.

In cooperation with the United States Forest Service – Pike National Forest San Carlos Ranger District; we we are hosting a trail work day every year in the Southern Sangre. 


WHY: (Besides it being the right thing to do) Many races have started to require their participants complete at least 8-hours of volunteer service prior to running in their event. The Human Potential Running Series requires 8-hours of volunteer service to be able to participate in the Silverheels 100-Mile, Sangre de Cristo 100-Mile, Sangre de Cristo 150-Mile, and Sangre de Cristo 200-Mile Endurance Runs (Though, runners can opt out of this requirement by submitting a $150 donation to our beneficiaries).

Due to the growing number of races requiring volunteer work, as well as our own requirements, HPRS is also proud to adopt these trails to better serve the Colorado ultrarunning community in fulfilling these requirements. Every year, HPRS will be releasing a trail work schedule to allow folks to plan which workdays they’d like to attend between the months of June and October.

Trail maintenance requires moderate physical labor.  Volunteers will be hiking with five to seven pound tools in hand.
