Accies College Cup

 

Tomorrow will mark the first day in a new lockdown challenge that our players and coaches will participate in over the next few weeks. The players will be split into 5 teams named after Ivy league colleges, each of which will include a coach and captain, and the challenge will extend across 8 separate races of varying distances.

 

Columbia Lions - Captain: Ally Wood, Coach: Archie Winnington-Ingram

Dartmouth Big Green - Captain: Angus Inwood, Coach: Ross Young

Harvard Crimson - Captain: Ted Jones, Coach: Andrew Easson

Penn Quakers - Captain: James Gordon, Coach: Sam Johnson

Yale Bulldogs - Captain: Will Stephen, Coach: Chris Martin

 

The races will plot a path around UK, Ireland and Europe visiting clubs and locations that Accies have toured in the past. We may not be able to visit in person, but we can in spirit! 

 

 

Each team member must log the kilometres clocked through their daily exercise and the first team to accumulate the total points for each race will gain 100 points. Team members will also earn a bonus of 5 points for completing individual challenges throughout and the highest total team points all 8 races will determine the champions of the College Cup.

 

Good luck to all involved!
