The 17th May is D-Day for the Cambridge University Athletics Team.

They travel away to Oxford for the 150th Anniversary of the Varsity match, with the Men’s team aiming for their 6th consecutive victory.

Vital although the day is, the real prestige lies in Cambridge on the 10th of May.

Can you beat the Blues?

The Club are resurrecting an old tradition by inviting any team to challenge our 4x100m squad for the title of the fastest team in Cambridge University.

The stakes are high: £150 worth of champagne for the winning men’s and women’s teams, along with £150 to a charity of their choice. (Members of the Athletics club team are excluded from the prizes.)

Any team of 4 individuals (who preferably are relatively quick) are welcome to attend. Details on the Facebook event page found below.
