Jailbreak is one of RAG’s most popular, uni-wide events! Starting on a morning in Lent term, pairs of participants will flee from the the starting point of Parkers’ Piece, and get as far away as possible in 36 hours armed with only their Jailbreak t-shirts, an assortment of RAG goodies and a great deal of ingenuity. With pairs in previous years making it to Barcelona, Singapore, New York  and everywhere in between Jailbreak is the ultimate excuse to escape Cambridge for the weekend – and all for a good cause!


This year 66 students took part in LOST, raising over £10,000 for RAG ballot charities. The group of brave students were dropped outside the village of Charlbury in Oxfordshire, from where they had to make their way into Oxford and then back to Cambridge – all without spending any money. Along the way they were required to perform a number of weird and wonderful challenges in order to maximise their team’s’ points.
