How it Works


Every year for 36 hours over 100 people are unleashed from Parker’s Piece, armed with only their Jailbreak t-shirts, an assortment of RAG goodies and a great deal of ingenuity.


Whether Buenos Aires, Warsaw, Sydney or Marrakesh is your thing, join us for a unique experience and help raise over £20,000 for Cambridge RAG’s 10 charities.

Jailbreak is one of RAG’s most popular, uni-wide events! Starting on the morning of Friday 10th March, teams of 2 and 3 will flee from the the starting point of Parkers’ Piece, and get as far away as possible in 36 hours. With teams in previous years making it to Barcelona, Singapore, New York  and everywhere in between (plus completing some challenges on the way) – Jailbreak is the ultimate excuse to escape Cambridge for the weekend – and all for a good cause!

Prizes from restaurant vouchers to May Ball tickets are available for teams who raise the most or complete challenges like getting the furthest without spending a penny.

If you’re keen to take part sign up here:

Signups cost £15 each (so £30 for a pair or £45 for a team of three). The fundraising target for each team is £250, though we’d love you to get as much as you can. We’ll ask for a £25 deposit from each participant, but won’t cash it if you raise enough.

If you’ve got any questions, please contact
