University of Exeter Jailbreak

Exeter Jailbreak is back and better than ever! This year we’ve decided to give you 36 hours to get as far away from Exeter, spending none of your own money, all in the aid of our nominated charities: Exeter Student Volunteers, Exeter Leukaemia Fund and St Loye’s Foundation. We’re also allowing female only teams this year too! Last year we had a record number of teams taking part making it further than ever before and reaching Cyprus, Turkey, Spain and Greece! This year we have even greater expectations and the question is, can you be the first Exetonians to make it out of the continent?
