Jailbreak FAQ

What is Jailbreak?

Jailbreak is a sponsored hitchhike event. In teams of three, you compete to get as far away from Oxford (and back) as you can in 36 hours, without spending any of your own money!

When is Jailbreak?

Jailbreak 2018 is taking place on the 17th and 18th February. 

How does Jailbreak raise money?

We ask participants for a registration fee of £25 each. This covers the administrative costs, your event t-shirt, the tracking software and your travel insurance. We then ask each participant to fundraise a minimum of £100, and give plenty of support and fundraising advice. If you’re worried, come along to our fundraising workshop on Monday 29th January to learn more about how to reach your target.

You can see how much Jailbreak 2018 has already raised by going here. Fundraising is open until Tuesday 6th March.
