BCU Racing is a student-led team that competes in the Formula Student Challenge in July each year. Formula Student is an event run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and over 150 teams from all across the world have the chance to design, build, and race their cars at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix. 2018 is the 20th anniversary of the Formula Student event, so it’s an exciting time to get involved!

The Birmingham Marathon takes place on Sunday 16 October. Our engineering lecturer Laura will be taking part. She has been working with Richard Blagrove from the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences to help her prepare for this challenge. In her final blog before the run, Laura talks about walking the Cotswold Way as part of her preparation.
