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 Istanbul, setting a new Cardiff record. Think you can beat them? Get involved!

Ticket price £15 per person and each team member needs to purchase a £15 ticket or you can buy them all together if you select 3 or 4 tickets - (ticket sale ends Wedensday 1st March at 11.59pm) - minimum of 3 people per team and maximum of 4 You'll need to sign up with your team (we can't accept teams of 2 or less or teams of 5 or more).

In addition, each team member needs to raise minimum of £50 each to take part. So, for example, if you are a team of 3 you need to raise minimum £150, if you are a team of 4 it's £200. You can buy your ticket before you start fundraising and you can carry on fundraising throughout/after the event!

Important: Every team member must attend a Safety Briefing in order to take part in Jailbreak, these take place on March 1st and 3rd. Sign up here
