Press Pause with Exeter Sport

‌Hey everyone, Happy Wednesday! I know Wednesday’s are typically a lot more exciting than they have been recently. No fancy dress, no curly fries, no Thursday morning debriefs. BUT the Press Pause campaign is here to make each day a little brighter. We want to move 2021 miles as a community to beat this whirlwind of a year. This is in aid of three outstanding charities that have been chosen by students: Devon Rape Crisis, Mind Devon, and Exeter Foodbank.

As of this 2pm this afternoon (BUCS game day kick-off for the eagle eyed among us) the Student Sport Strava page will be tracking our distance as we target that 2021 mile total. If you’re doing any form of moving, please join that team (link below)! The best performer every week will win prizes, Piers Morgan is currently top of the leaderboard as he hasn’t stopped walking since yesterday morning.
Follow us on Instagram (@uoestudentsport) or like us on Facebook (University of Exeter Student Sport) and stay posted for news about all Press Pause events that will be happening throughout the coming weeks. There is much more to come including podcasts with some of our finest alumni.

If you are in Exeter over the Easter/Spring break the Grounds and Gardens website has a series of maps and trails you can use to find peaceful spaces.

Biodiversity trail on Streatham Campus


In Penryn, you can see what’s growing in the walled garden, or explore the rich biodiversity around campus by taking a biodiversity tour around Tremough Gardens.

If you are on campus, please remember hands, face, space. The COVID-19 secure measures that were established last year are still in place and remain effective. Colleagues in the ‘Here to Help’ team can support you if you have any queries or wish to report concerns.

The situation regarding restrictions for sport and activity is changing all the time, so please make sure you check the latest government guidelines regularly.
