Exonians run for Muscular Dystrophy
Exonians from across the College community took part in the annual Oxford Town and Gown run this month, raising money for Muscular Dystrophy. The Exeter team was made up of both students and staff, including Fellows, scouts, the Conference Manager, Assistant Bursar, and one of the College chefs.
Students Aamir Saifuddin (2005, Physiological Sciences) and Daniel Cashman (2008, Jurisprudence) were Exeter’s fastest runners, completing the 10 km run through central Oxford in 41 and 42 minutes respectively. They were closely followed by Conference Manager Philip Munday, who finished in 46 minutes.
There is a trophy for the College which raises the most sponsorship money. Exeter lost it to rivals Jesus College recently, and we have been keen to retrieve it ever since. We hope that, when the totals are revealed during the summer, the trophy will be returning to the right side of Turl Street!
