IBC Road Race – request for volunteer help

Road race organiser Will Taylor says thank you to all those that have already pledged help to assist at the re-scheduled IBC Road Race set for Sunday 22nd July 2018.

He could do with a few more volunteers even if it means only spending an hour as this gives people already working a break to watch the racing or rest up. All jobs are required, catering help with food prep, tea & coffee making etc, marshall assistance and following the race in cars.

Also if you just want to come up and watch then bring a chair and set yourself up somewhere around the course to watch as the riders are likely to go round for at least 8 laps so plenty to see and photo opportunities.
