Fancy bagging free entry to one of the Struggle series of sportives?

The organisers are offering complimentary entry to any of their events, if you volunteer to work as staff at one of their sportives this year.

Volunteer for Struggle and get a ticket to ride.

"We're seeking passionate and enthusiastic volunteers for our 2024 events," say The Struggle.

"In return you'll receive a complimentary entry to a Struggle of your choice in 2024 or 2025."

The 2024 events you can crew for are:

  • Struggle Dales on 19th May
  • Struggle Moors on 16th June
  • Legacy Ride on 7th July
  • Borderlands on 14 or 15th September

There's no rigorous application procedure to go through - just a simple online form with your name and contact details, and the events you'd like to work on and ride.

It should take no more than 20 seconds.

Seems a smart move from Struggle to recruit from an audience of keen sportive riders - you'll know exactly how those riders feel when they stagger into the last feed stop with 50km still to ride!
