We are proud to be offering a wide range of events which can be entered via the entry form linked below. You must ensure your union BUCS representative also enters via BUCS Play to allow BUCS points to be awarded as appropriate.

Lightweights must be weighed-in an hour before their race, men must weigh in at 75.0kg or less and women 61.5kg or less. Should a lightweight fail to make weight they will still be able to race but will not be placed in the lightweight category but instead have their time included in the heavyweight category.

For all categories, except the team relay, BUCS will send medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd to each institution after the event.
