Sustainability is hugely importance to the Enduro World Series team and here in the Tweed Valley event team, we’ve made it our mandate to have sustainability at our core.

Event Sustainability

We want the event at the EWS Tweed Valley to be sustainable and respectful of the local environment, both during and after the event. Some of the steps we are taking to ensure this include:


  • On-site, single use plastics must be kept to an absolute minimum

  • Cutlery and trays used in food service must be reusable, recyclable or compostable

  • No glass is permitted onsite

  • Segregated recycling bins will be available across the Festival Village and spectator zones

  • Where possible, we will use local suppliers for the event, both to minimise travel/carbon footprint, and to ensure a positive economic benefit for the local business community

  • EWS reuse race materials such as rider number plates, start/finish line assets, podium structures, signage and other items to ensure minimum wastage 

  • Race information is supplied in a digital format where possible

  • The Event Programme is available as a digital download only


Trail Sustainability


We are working closely with land owners, Forestry & Land Scotland, and the charity Tweed Valley Trail Association, of which all our employees are members. 


These organisations help us ensure that:


The race trails we use and build have been appropriately assessed and approved.


There won’t be a negative impact on the local environment, wildlife or future use of the trail/area.


The trails are maintained to ensure they are safe and accessible for our athletes, media, marshalls and medics.


Similarly, to ensure the trails are left safe and accessible for the many riders who will visit the area after the EWS race event.
