Hurt the Dirt volunteers needed!

tagged as Luton Park,Volunteer

At our last meeting, we heard from Mark Van Tongeren – Michigan Adventure Racing.
The WMMBA is the charity partner of the Hurt the Dirt trail race at Luton Park on April 25.
For every WMMBA member who volunteers at the race, Hurt the Dirt will contribute 1-2% of its profits to the WMMBA, up to 10%.
Plus, he always takes care of his volunteers!

Mark and MI Adventure racing has always been a great supporter, ally and friend of the WMMBA. I hope we all can get together and give some love back!

In an effort to help trail users know trail conditions before driving to the trail head, we’ve created a new “Trail Conditions” page on our website. Simply click on “Trail Conditions” under “Trails” at the top of our website or go to If the trail is green you’re good to go, if it’s red stay home. We will especially be updating these during the spring thaw when trails are at their most vulnerable.
