Ruth finishing event in Uni Parks

The inter-college "Cuppers" competition is held anually in Trinity Term. It's a fantastic event and everyone is welcome to take part - no experience is required, and there are prizes for the fastest novices. The event is usually held close to Oxford to make travel easier, with venues in recent years including Shotover and South Parks.

In 2008 Cuppers was held on Saturday 10th May in Headington Hill Park and Oxford Brookes. Merton won the overall team prize, Alison Crocker (New College) was the fastest woman and Chris Embrey (St Hugh's) the fastest man. Full results are available here.
