Just in time for spring, Earth Day, and National Park Week, Altra and Trail Sisters have partnered to launch a trail cleanup challenge. And you can help.

The goal of Altra and Trail Sisters’ April trail cleanup challenge is for runners and hikers to collectively put in 2,021 hours cleaning up trails by the end of the month. And anyone, anywhere in the U.S., can join in.

“We invite you to grab cleanup gear, head to your favorite local trail, park, or walking route, pick up trash, and enjoy the outdoors,” Altra announced.
