Find out all you need to know for the biggest day of fancy dress on the South Coast!

RAG Race 2018






RAG Race is a yearly event run by UCSU to raise money for the charity of the year. RAG stands for Raise and Give which is a nationwide known campaign to raise money, however each organisation has a different way of raising awareness and money for others.

The day involves dressing up, having fun and raising awareness. Just put on your favourite costume and join your friends in walking around Bognor visiting many of the participating bars, pubs and clubs along the way.

You will be given a RAG Pack on the day where you will receive a map, food outlets, water stations and loads more useful information!


If this is your first year participating in RAG Race, check out these videos of RAG 2016 and RAG 2017 to give you an idea of what the day is all about.


For some fancy dress inspiration, why not visit the 2017 album on the UCSU Facebook Page to see what our wonderful students came up with last year!

Want to Volunteer at Rag Race 2018?


If you are looking for something great to go on your CV and are free to give your time for a few hours on Saturday 17th March 2018 then you can be part of the 2018 Rag Race Welfare Crew!


We are looking for a group of responsible people to help out on the day of RAG Race to give people water and medical support should it be needed.  Not only will you help make the biggest student event of the year run smoothly but you will gain organisational, management and teamwork skills too! You will be provided with all the training you need before the day. You are only required to work for 5 hours on the day and then you have access to a free RAG pack and you can go and enjoy the rest of the day.

This is a great opportunity to make friends and it is a really fun day all round. You can gain volunteering hours which can get you an SU Award and something fantastic to put on your HEAR.
