Volunteers required at all eight venues to be a part of Britain’s premier televised city centre cycle race Series The Halfords Tour Series are now recruiting for volunteers to support their team-based city centre cycle racing events this summer.
The calendar of eight cycle races is action-packed. Bringing the thrills, and spills, of professional cycling up close to thousands of spectators at every venue. With emphasis on teams rather than individual riders, ten top British teams battle it out for the coveted Halfords Tour Series title.
Beginning on Tuesday 24th May, the races are every Tuesday and Thursday throughout May and June, with events taking place at Durham, Aberystwyth, Peterborough, Colchester, Stoke-on-Trent, Oldham, Woking and Canary Wharf. Volunteers will be needed from approximately 13.00 onwards at each venue to fulfill a variety of roles. The main duty being marshalling the circuit at crossing points and other strategic locations.
“I’d like to thank everyone who volunteers to be a part of this year’s Halfords Tour Series,” said Series Director, Mick Bennett. “Volunteers are an integral part of cycling in this country, and without people giving up their time to assist in the running of events there would not be such a diverse range of cycling events. “I’d like to think that everyone who volunteers with The Halfords Tour Series goes away proud of what they’ve been a part of, for volunteering allows members of the public to get close to the action and say they were an important part of The Halfords Tour Series.”
As a thank you for their support every Halfords Tour Series volunteer will receive a goody bag from the organisers. With this year’s star volunteer receiving a VIP Experience for two to The Tour of Britain in September.
