RAG’s Jailbreak returns to Exeter
Any travel-lovers out there? If so, good news: Following the success of its launch in February, RAG’s Jailbreak is returning to Exeter.
Last term saw nearly 40 teams travelling thousands of miles, reaching ten countries and raising over £9,000 for each of RAG’s nominated charities in the process.
This term – good news – it’s back. Jailbreak, however, will be taking place post-exams from the 30th-31st May, so there’s nothing to stop you from escaping the stress of exams and revision.
The catch? You have just 30 hours and no money.
Having travelled the 2752 kilometres to Tenerife, last term’s winners Ellie Wyithe and Ashley Smith shared the best thing about taking part.
“It’s really exciting because you have no idea where you will end up when the 30 hours is up,” they said. “Getting as far as we did was unexpected but amazing, and it was a great break from a stressful term!”
Tips-wise, Ellie suggests: “definitely have a sort of plan of which means of getting out the country you are aiming for and then stick to it. And if you’re heading to the airport don’t go to Heathrow!”
Think you could make it further? Sign-ups have been extended to 20th May at midday so book your place now.
The sign-up fee is just £20 per person which includes a t-shirt, EU travel insurance, tracking system and support back in Exeter.
Each participant who signs up will be asked to raise a minimum of £100 for RAG’s nominated charities by 14th June.
In teams of two or three (each team must have at least one boy), each group will set off together from the Forum at 11am.
Within the allotted time, the team reaching the furthest location within the 30 hours will win free First Great Western train tickets.
This term, though, there’s another twist: if you enter as a student society (at least one member of your team must be on committee), your club could be in with the chance of winning up to £200 funding.
