As my time at UBC was coming to an end, I ask myself “did I truly get the full University experience?”
The answer was no. So I made a pact with my close friends that we would say yes to various UBC events, join more clubs, and become more involved with school activities. This year I finally got to try UBC AMS’ annual Storm The Wall.
“Storm the Wall has been a lasting tradition at UBC starting in 1978. It has grown to be the largest intramural event in North America with over 800 teams registering! The race itself is similar to a triathlon, but completed as a relay with a team of five. One team member swims laps in the Aquatic Centre, the second does a sprint up to Main Mall, the third bikes around Main Mall, the fourth runs through campus to the wall, and the last teammate joins the team at the wall where every team member will climb over!” – Recreation UBC
I volunteered to be the long distance run through the campus and boy did I overestimate my physical abilities.
