Accommodation and Social

Showers will be provided at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre on Saturday afternoon, following the Individual race.

Hall-floor accommodation, located a short walk from the centre of Cambridge and a 5-10 minute drive from the Relay location, will be provided. Competitors should bring their own sleeping bag and mat. Accommodation will be at St. Mary's School, next to the Cambridge Botanical Gardens.

An all-you-can-eat buffet dinner will be laid on for competitors at Nines Buffet, a 15-20 minute walk from the accommodation.

If competitors wish they can then carry on into the centre of Cambridge for the official BUCS afterparty at MASH nightclub. Tickets can be purchased here. The organiser recently conducted a strictly educational, fact-finding visit to the club and can confirm that the music is very good, so there's no excuses. This will be during the last week of term for Cambridge University students, so competitors are encouraged to purchase their tickets sooner rather than later to avoid a queue on the night.
