Varsity March

Date: Saturday 24th June (end of 9th week)

The Varsity March is an annual 81 mile (131 km) sponsored walk from Oxford to Cambridge, organised by Cambridge University Walking Club and also involving members of Oxford University Walking club. Completing the walk will take the whole weekend.

IMPORTANT: The Cambridge walkers will be setting the pace for this walk and it is expected that everybody will be able to keep up with them. For people intending to go as far as Aylesbury, the distance (23 miles) is further than anything we have done on our own local walks, which generally don’t go beyond 15 miles/24 km. If you have struggled with our local walks, then this walk definitely isn’t suitable for you.
