At UCLU & RUMS RAG, we aim to give you crazy and fun experiences to make your university years unforgettable! Every year we aspire to raise more money for our charities through our events and activities and we need YOU to help us do this. Join our society by purchasing our £3 membership and we'll add you to our mailing list so that you'll be the first to know about our events and how to get involved!
How far will you go?
Jailbreak is a tradition at RAG Societies across the UK and is our most popular event. Jailbreak teams endeavour to travel as far away from UCL as possible, in 36 hours, without spending a penny! This is hitchhiking to the extreme, and in the past, teams have managed to get to New York, Marrakesh and Budapest!
Jailbreak is a crazy experience like no other and every year we look forward to seeing how far teams travel, what adventures they have on the way, and how much money they raise in sponsorship! We are always astounded by the amazing results and we look forward to Jailbreak for the upcoming year.
JAILBREAK 2017 IS TAKING PLACE ON FEBRUARY 25TH-26TH!
Can you find your way back...?
LOST is our "reverse Jailbreak" event; teams are taken to a mysterious and secret location and have to race back to UCL using only their wits and charms! Leave behind your GPS, maps or even money; this is your chance to discover how persuasive you are and hitchhike back from where you were left stranded.
LOST is a fantastic opportunity to try out hitchhiking and see for yourself how easy and fun it is. It's a great test run for those interested in Jailbreak and takes less than 12 hours. Look out for more details in October/ November 2017 as we'll be hosting LOST as our very first RAG event next year!
Kili Challenge and Machu Picchu trek
Every year RAG sends teams of brave students on epic Challenges Abroad! For the past few years, we've partnered with Hope For Children, CLIC Sargent and Choose A Challenge to bring you the Kili Challenge, Morocco Trek and the Athens Marathon. This year our challenges are:
The KILI CHALLENGE, a journey to Tanzania to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. Spending 10+ days trekking, sightseeing in Zanzibar, and having the experience of a lifetime! You'll also get to see the projects your fundraising supports. Click here for more info.
The Machu Picchu trek, an expedition across the Peruvian Andres, traversing jungles, mountain, glaciers and valleys; arriving at the Lost City of the Incans. Click here for more info. Please contact if you are interested in taking part in either challenge this year.
Fancy the thrill and rush falling out of a plane at 13,000ft? Have no fear, RAG is here to help bring your dreams true!
Defy all norms of air travel and join us in March at the Headcorn Airfield in Kent to parachute tandem back down to Earth. Our skydiving event attracts some of UCL's most adventurous thrill-seekers and is a brilliant way of ticking something off your bucket list, whilst raising money for a good cause. If you'd do anything for an adrenaline rush but have a busy schedule and don't want to travel too far, this is the event for you!
We are always looking to put on different and exciting events for the students and to fundraise for our charities. In the past we've had:
Endurance eating competition
... and many more!
