Scottish Borders Council and the OVO Energy Tour of Britain organisers are calling on Borderers to support the UK’s biggest free to spectate event this September by volunteering as a Race Maker.

A number of volunteering opportunities are available on Sunday 8 September, including assisting at the stage two start and finish in Kelso, and also along the route at sprint and SKODA King of the Mountains locations. No training is required; all volunteers will get a briefing on the day.

The Scottish Borders Stage

The Scottish Borders Stage will start in Kelso town centre, travel along the A698 to Coldstream before passing through Lennel en-route to Paxton. From there it will take the riders west, taking in Chirnside and Preston. Cutting across from Ellemford to Longformacus, the race will then drop down into Duns and pass through Gavinton and Westruther.

Gordon, Smailholm and then Clintmains all feature on the route before the climb to Scott’s View and descent to the foot of Leaderfoot viaduct. After passing through Gattonside, the riders will turn in to Melrose and climb Dingleton Hill before a fast run through Maxton to the finish line back in Kelso.
