This year, excitingly the Varsity Series is collaborating with the Bristol 10k, where all students, staff and alumni alike, will be able to come together to run in a dedicated red and maroon wave within the event; as the two universities come together in our great city. With this in mind; whether you’re a seasoned runner looking for a PB…or you want to set yourself a challenge, there are some great opportunities for you to move your feet, with a the Ready Steady Glow walk and also the 5K in March.
The competitive sporting element to Varsity will be condensed within a few days in March, where the strongest collaborative sporting bids have been selected and will be showcased as standalone events. This year there will be a continued focus on developing the number of intramural & halls Varsity teams within Varsity Day on Wednesday 27 March 2019.
Another exciting collaboration will take place with Tour De Bristol in April, where 100 students from UWE Bristol and Bristol University will come together for the 40k Cycling Sportive, all in aid of St Peter’s Hospice.
If that’s not enough, there will be a curtain closing event to finish the academic year with a bang…think Pimms, think sunshine, think sitting along the harbourside, think your best pair of sunnies, think live music…all topped off with some exciting rowing sprint racing.
In order to deliver the series, we need you…so if you & your club want to volunteer as part of the event team please get in touch.2018-2019
