BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) events are the highlight, the feature, the creme de la creme of higher education sport! There are 3 BUCS events for us: BUCS cross country (start of February), BUCS indoors (middle of February), and BUCS outdoors (end of April/start of May.)

BUCS cross country

BUCS cross country is the weekend with the club which everyone raves about! Hosted in a different city each year, around 50 CUAC athletes of all abilities enter. With women's and men's Long and Short courses, the racing is spicy and the support is electric. After the race, there's a notorious club night for all the competitors, and it's here that legends are born...

 

In 2022 we finished as the 11th women's team and 19th men's team. Highlights included Lauren Cooper 26th, Ben Miles 33rd and Sam Tyas 39th. We are looking to build on this in style in 2023. BUCS cross country this year is still to be confirmed but will be on 4th February. Contact BUCS captain James Heneghan for information.

 

 

BUCS Indoors

Always a fantastic atmosphere in the cauldron of noise at the English Institute of Sport. 2022 was a huge sucess for the club, taking a 25 person team and coming away with 3 medals! Rory Howorth brought us a bronze in the mascot race, Che Richards a silver in the long jump and James Heneghan became the BUCS indoor 1500m champion. The 2023 event will again be held in Sheffield.

 

BUCS Outdoors

In 2022 the pinnacle of BUCS athletics was hosted at Chelmsford. The club came away with a long jump gold medal won by Che Richards and an ambulant long jump medal by Nils Rehm, as well as a 4th placed club record-breaking women's 4x100.

 

 

Qualifying performances

For BUCS track and field each university can in general only take two athletes per event, and the team is selected by the committee based on recent performances. Some events also have an additional minimum standard set by BUCS. The table below shows the PBs of the athletes that were selected for the BUCS teams in 2022.
