Volunteers Needed at Tour of Utah

Let's be honest, 545 miles and 38,500 feet of climbing over six stages presents an insane challenge to any cyclist on this planet.  Save this challenge for the pros, while you can still take in the action of the Tour of Utah as a volunteer.

The Wasatch Mountains challenge the world’s best athletes when they come to Utah in winter or summer.  From August 7-12, the world’s best cyclists battle over 545 miles of black tarmac rather than white powder! The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah returns for an eighth year for the overall start in Ogden and overall finish in Park City. This year it is the first major, weeklong cycling stage race in North America to challenge the top teams after the Tour de France. Seven teams from the Tour de France have committed to compete in the six-day race that covers 545 miles!

Close to 2,000 volunteer positions are needed for race week.  Help the Tour by volunteering as an individual, or as a group.  EnergySolutions is the presenting sponsor of the volunteer force.  All volunteers will score commemorative merchandise, including a t-shirt, cap, collapsible lunch tote, water bottle and sunscreen.  

While course marshal positions are the highest need, additional support will be needed with the Geigerrig Lifestyle Expo and teamgive Pedal Power Festival activity areas adjacent to the race finish lines. In the comment area of the volunteer application, individuals can request a specific assignment for the week. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, and are required to sign a waiver.

Individuals, clubs and civic organizations are encouraged to sign up online to volunteer -, or send an email to

And you can bet that this Yeti will be involved in the Tour of Utah. In fact, look for me at each mountain top, cheering the world's top cyclists as they climb for King of the Mountain (KOM) points and the honor to wear the Ski Utah KOM jersey.
