Now in its second year, UK Scout Network are helping to marshal the Isle of Man TT races.
For two weeks on June, the normally quiet Isle of Man gains a festival atmosphere with over 40,000 people flocking to the shores for the Isle of Man TT. Men (and women!) pitch themselves against the 37.73 miles of public road lined with stone walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles.
Why not take a step closer?
We are looking for Network members to support the event by marshalling one of the 200+ corners of the legendary circuit. You will join a team of dedicated volunteers who will show you the ropes (or in this case brushes, stretchers and flags)! The aim for each session is to simply watch the racing and drink several cups of tea but should something happen you will be there to help keep it safe for the riders and spectators alike.

Accommodation: 1st Malew Scout Hall - £35 per week
Travel: This will be left for you to organise as everyone will be travelling from different places. Flight and ferry are your main options to the Isle of Man.
There are two ports to the Isle of Man - Heysham and Liverpool.
If ferry is your choice, we recommend travelling by Sail and Rail as this could be the cheapest way.
