Our biggest annual fundraiser.... how far will you go?


A 52 hour charity race to the furthest places and back to Cardiff again.

Cardiff Volunteering's annual fundraiser happens every March. Teams race to get as far away from Cardiff as possible and back in 52 hours without spending any money on transport.

Last year's winning team made it to Salzburg Austria. The Cardiff record however is Cyprus. Think you can beat them? Get involved!

Ticket price £15 per person and each team member needs to purchase a ticket or you can buy them all together if you select 2 to 4 tickets - minimum of 2 people per team and maximum of 4.

In addition, each team member needs to raise minimum of £50 each for Cardiff Volunteering to take part. So, for example, if you are a team of 3 you need to raise minimum £150. You can buy your ticket before you start fundraising and you can carry on fundraising throughout/after the event! You can raise money just for Cardiff Volunteering and our projects or 50% of the money you raise can go to Cardiff Volunteering, the other 50% can go towards any local charities you support or your chosen Cardiff University Students' Union Society or AU club.

To fundraise teams will need to set up a fundraising page that is connected to the main Jailbreak fundraising page. You can read our guide on how to do this here

Important: Every team member must attend a Safety Briefing in order to take part in Jailbreak, The date of this compulsory safety breifing is at 6pm on the 20th of March and you shall receive an email with more information once you have bought a Jailbreak ticket.

We have some amazing prizes that teams can win from taking part in during the 52 hours.

Crazy travel not your thing but still want to be involved? Volunteer with us on the weekend to keep the Jailbreak teams safe. More info email Or get involved in our Mini-Jailbreak event which is a more relaxed version of our Jailbreak challenge, find out more here
