Athletics: Michaelmas Cuppers 2017

In Sports Teams by Miles Weatherseed0 Comments

The somewhat tentatively named “157th Oxford University Sports” (read: “Athletics Cuppers”) is due to take place this Saturday at the historic Iffley Road stadium. There is absolutely no minimum requirement in terms of ability, and every year sees plenty of people pick up a javelin, leap into a sandpit and launch a disc for the very first time.

At the top end of things, it is a chance for the very best athletes in Oxford to go head-to-head and earn a coveted spot in the team for OUAC’s first tab-shoeing venture of the season: Freshers’ Varsity (5th Nov).

Run, jump or throw your way to the top 16 in each event to score points, with champagne prizes up for grabs including:

  • Oxford’s Most Athletic College (Men and Women)
  • Oxford’s Most Athletic Man / Woman / Male Fresher / Female Fresher

Bonus points are also available for hitting any of the Blue or Half Blue standards

Entry is £1 on the day for as many events as you like.
