Closed Road Sportive

Sunday 5 September 2021


Join the Touro event team


If you’re not riding in the event, there are other ways you can get involved and enjoy the buzz Tour O The Borders brings!


Tour O The Borders 2019 will be one of the biggest and most exciting cycling events of the year in the Scottish Borders, with thousands of cyclists, their friends and families heading to the area for the region’s only closed road cycle sportive. Many riders will take on the challenging route through some of the country’s most beautiful scenery, with some also raise money for their own cherished causes.


We’re looking for volunteers from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September. Friday 30th & Saturday 31st are event village and course preparation days (course taping, route prep, etc.), Saturday 31st September is registration day, Sunday 1st is event day.


An event like this needs a small army of helpers to make it work, so we are recruiting a team for all kinds of roles, all the way round the 120km route. It’s a great way to be part of the action and join in the excitement of this amazing day. Anyone who isn’t riding (and is 16 or older) can apply and any necessary training or instruction will be provided.


If you marshal for a full day on event day, you will also receive £35 expenses.
