Trans Cascadia's Ten for Trails is Back

Oct 21, 2021

bigquotesOur race revenue is focused mainly on operations and logistics before and after the race itself and opening trails that we race on. Funds raised from Ten for Trails allow us to open trails that may not be a part of the race but need attention and are important to the local communities.Race Producer Alex Gardner

In 2021, Trans Cascadia maintained and opened 108 miles of backcountry trails and cleared 46 miles of access roads. With their continued work with the United States Forest Service, clearing remote trails remains the organization’s primary mission and one they are excited to continue. Trans Cascadia will expand next year with the hopes of hiring two more full-time trail building staff and embarking on a program that will maintain 750 miles of the most cherished singletrack in the Pacific Northwest, including all of the trails used for the Trans Cascadia race course.

Ten for Trails proceeds directly fund trail work and also pay for tools used by maintenance crews. This year, title sponsor Pearl Izumi has created Trans Cascadia replica jerseys, and is donating $10 for each jersey sold. Both Men's and Women's versions are available. In total, Trans Cascadia has invested over $490,854 labor dollars invested with over 18,600 total volunteer hours of trailwork. Both the race and fundraising like Ten for Trails allows such work to continue.

bigquotesHuge thanks to the trail builders, race directors and sponsors that bring such a grand event to life – the details, coordination, logistics and planning required to pull something like this off are next level and it truly takes a village. Trans-Cascadia is far more than a bike race, it's the experience of a lifetime!Morgan Kurz

 I've been a part of a couple of these work parties - it's amazing how much they get done. Long hard 10+ hr days but feels great to look at the progress....particularly so from the perspective of a racer also.

I've done a lot of trail work with with some of the moto clubs which usually consists of BS over coffee for an hour in the morning, leisure trail clearing for 2-3 hours, couple beers, done by 2....not so with the TC crew, well oiled, tools dialed, logistics figured out, food, beer, reserved campgrounds, it's impressive....
