Map extractThe University was established in 1900 and has gone through several phases of expansion and redevelopment since. The campus has an intricate network of buildings with changes of level to challenge you. Notable landmarks include the world's highest freestanding clock tower and the new Green Heart open space.

This event will be open to international and solo club competitors, who may form mixed club teams.

Here is a link to a video of last year's event at Brunel University which will give you an idea of the atmosphere if you haven't been to a sprint relay before.
