What can you do?

Students on Race the SunWe are known for our challenging sporting events especially in cycling and midnight trek PLODS. But we can't do it without our volunteers marshalling, and running feed station stations. Or grab some friends and take on the challenge yourselves!

Why not join our university ambassadors? Confident, engaging students have got involved giving talks in schools or promoting our bike rides locally. They inspire others. Is this you?
