You will have 36 hours to get as far away from UWE as possible while trying to fundraise money for charity. You can't pay for your transport, so you'll have to use your brains and some ingenuity to hitchhike as far away from Bristol as you can go.
What is Jailbreak?
Jailbreak is a chance for you to hitchhike across the world whilst raising money for charity. You have 36 hours to travel as far from UWE as you can, without spending any of your money. This is a team activity so therefore you will need to do it in a group of 2 or 3.
What happened at UWE last year?
Last year all our teams made it out of the UK! The winners of Jailbreak 2017 were Team Chikita who managed to get to the Gran Canarias Island. They said, “We are so glad we decided to participate in Jailbreak and have this amazing experience as well as able to donate so much to an important charity.” Other teams made it to Amsterdam, Venice, Trieste and Malta.
How do I get involved?
There will be an information meeting on the 15th of February at 5:30pm in The Students’ Union at UWE Building in Meeting Room 1. There we will tell you more and give you the chance to talk to someone who did it last year. The cost of Jailbreak is £10 but this covers your tracking, t-shirt and jailbreak pack. You will then attend a pre-departure briefing giving you lots of tips as well as raising a minimum of £100 per team for our Community Fund or a charity of your choice as a team.
See where the teams got last year.
