It’s finally here!! Get ready for quite simply the most memorable social of the year. Pub Jog is the Athletics & XC Flagship social, attracting hundreds of members, friends and alumni from around the country. Get your ticket now by purchasing a surprise custom designed T-shirt in your size.
Be prepared for races, challenges, food stops and banter as we make are way through Earlsdon on the historic 10-Pub route. The 25 year old event is so famous it has its own website, so check out the link to swat up on what’s in store!
If you haven’t been on a Pub Jog with us before, ask ANYONE that’s EVER been what it’s about, and they will describe to you with great exuberance the magnitude of the occasion – and as always for Pub Jog we’d love to see your house or course mates come along and enjoy the epic journey with us.
Pub Jog: For some, the only reason to join Athletics, for many, the perfect way to end the term, for all, the pinnacle of sporting socials!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and are still going strong after the madness of week 1. Was great to meet so many of you at the social on Thursday, and we’re looking forward to getting to know you all much better as the term progresses!

A number of you have shown interest in doing field events such as javelin, high jump and long jump. Whilst this is something we unfortunately don’t provide training for, Georges (Athletics Captain) is currently gathering information from coaches at the local athletics club (Coventry Godiva) about what sessions will be available to you. Feel free to message him if this is something that would interest you.

3. Be Social
CIRCLE & POP! (Note: new location): Saddle up and get your bow & arrows at the ready for our “Cowboys and Indians” themed circle this Wednesday!
Due to tickets selling out super quickly, we have decided that this week we will circle in Bar Fusion (where we were last week for Fresher’s Social). This means that all you lucky Freshers with a Freshers Pass will now be able to join us for circle & pop, which is something you definitely don’t want to miss!
We will be meeting at 7pm sharp for 7.30pm start of circle in Bar Fusion. There will be reprimands for any latecomers and prizes and penalties for best & worst dressed.
Drinks costs will be £8 for a 4-pint pitcher of purple, but those of you who come armed with credit on your Eating at Warwick card can get it for £7.20, a bargain at under £2 a pint.
Afterwards we will be making our way to POP! to dance the night away. Event tickets are now sold out so if you have a ticket going spare or would like to attend but can’t get a ticket then please let Alex or Paul (our social secs) know.
A little further ahead, make sure to buy your tickets NOW for Circle & POP! weeks 4, 6, 8 & 10 & the 2 Skool Dayz events to ensure you don’t miss out as these will sell out soon. Our annual initiations will be held to welcome all new members into the club (and not forgetting those old members who missed out last time!) before week 4 circle. This year our initiations are going to have a twist so watch out for an email with deets in the coming week!
All event tickets are available here: www.warwicksu.com/events
