The Only Sporting Event: Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 and S. Quinn Ritzhaupt ’23 with Camelot 2022

The Camelot Gran Prix Bike Race returned to the Horseshoe for the second year in a row this Spring! On May 7th at 2:00pm, hopeful bikers once again gathered to prove themselves in one of the most grueling (and perhaps only) sporting events Antioch College allows.

What is Camelot?

Camelot is an Antioch tradition dating back to the 60s. To simply put it: it’s a bike race! And it’s 100 laps. And also people will be throwing Camelot Juice at the riders.

What is Camelot Juice? 

Camelot has had any iterations in its day, but nowadays Camelot Juice is anything that’s completely vegan and compostable! We provided some, but it’s always best to bring your own!

How can I participate?

This event is open to the Antioch Community. Folks can sign up to ride in the race.  For those who don’t want to get as messy you can be a “thrower”, simply arrive on the Horseshoe and wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy!


Special thanks to S. Quinn Ritzhaupt ’23 and Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 for organizing the event!

A dedication to Lola Roxanne’s (’22) Tooth. You used to chew chips, now you are chipped.
