Evergreen Endurance Eco-Ambassadors
One of the major differences of our event is our true commitment to eco-responsibility towards our environment (more information in other parts of our website). One of the measures we are implementing is the cleaning of the mountain on the run courses, before and after the races. We are looking for volunteers who will be "Evergreen Endurance Eco-Ambassadors". As part of their mission, our eco-ambassadors are required to go through all the various sections of our running courses before and after the passage of the athletes in order to install an eco-friendly signage as well as overseeing the cleaning and preservations of these routes and finally help recycling the collected waste.
