After making history last year the Purple Wave returns. This year the event will be even bigger aiming to get over 3000 students staff and alumni running together as a University community.
This year, for the first time ever, there will also be the opportunity for people to enter free of charge, raise funds to support Undergraduate Access Scholarships and to take their next step and try the 1/2 marathon distance.
The first 2,018 student running spaces will be available for £20, down from a normal price of £38. Students can then be refunded if they sign up and raise at least £50 for the UG Access Scholarship — more details on the ticket link above.
Staff and alumni have the option of signing up free of charge, as long as they commit to raise £100 for the UG Access Scholarships, or can sign up for a paid space (Staff for £30 and Alumni £35)
All runners will receive a free purple technical running shirt (value of £19.99) and can access support through our website:
