This October, Round 2 of the British Cycling National Trophy Cyclocross will be held at Irvine Beach Park - the first time a National Trophy race has been held in Scotland. It’s a fantastic opportunity to show off the Scottish CX scene to the rest of the country, and preparations have already started to make sure the event gets as much support as possible from the Scottish CX community.

Bringing a national trophy to Scotland will require much more effort in terms of logistics, materials and organisation than a typical SCX Series race, and the organisers are now reaching out for help to make the event run as smoothly as possible.
Walkers Cycling have put together an information brochure to promote the event, and, as part of this, they have listed opportunities for corporate sponsors, infrastructure requirements and roles for volunteers.
All volunteers are welcome but some specific skill sets would be useful before and during the event:
- Event Promotion & Marketing
- Logistics Coordination
- Course Build Experience
- Volunteer Coordination
Infrastructure & Sponsorship Opportunities
- Temporary Structures for Admin / Media
- Welfare Units for Changing / Showers
- Portable Toilets
- Power Generation
- Portable Lighting / Heating
- Course Build logistics - (Wooden fence posts, debris mesh, hazard tape)
- Water Supply, (bowser for Pit Area)
- Food / Drinks for volunteers
