Tour of Britain needs stewards

The Tour of Britain, August 29-September 4, is appealing for volunteers to be part of this year's event as marshals and stewards at start and finish areas and at the sprint and king of the mountains primes along the route.

The race needs about 60 volunteers per stage, mostly to take care of road crossing points. Volunteers will need to be available for an hour before the race's ETA until the broom wagon passes. Finish area marshals will be needed until an hour after the race.

Race organizers say they would like to hear from clubs who are able to organize groups of ten volunteers, though we imagine giving the difficulty many races have finding staff that they won't turn down emails from interested individuals.

Volunteers will get an official Tour of Britain volunteer t-shirt,a Tour of Britain high-visibility tabard, refreshments, and a goodie bag including a Tour of Britain programme.

For a full breakdown of the route, from which to identify your most convenient volunteering point, and for further information, contact Rob Jeffrey's at
