Hello OxfordTri Family!
I hope that this finds you all well. Firstly a massive thanks to all those who attended or tuned into the AGM last night, I’m sure many will agree that it was exciting to hear about all of the things that have happened over the past 12 months and then some of our hopes and plans for the next 12. In the coming weeks we will share the minutes along with some of the things that were talked about during the evening. As always if you have any thoughts on what we should be prioritising as a club going forward please don’t hesitate to drop me a little message we are always open to ideas and feedback.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
Oxford Tri 2023/24 Committee
Last night at our AGM we elected our 2023/24 Committee. I would like to take this moment to thank Sarah who stepped down from her role as Club Captain after a number of years in the role. I’m sure many of you will agree that she has been an inspirational member through all of her adventures and challenges that she has faced and from a committee perspective, instrumental in looking after our Club Championships and constant presence when it’s come to helping support club events. Thank you Sarah.
I am delighted to share below your elected committee for the next year.
As you can see we still have a vacancy with regards to our Publicity Lead role. Although we will manage, we would love for someone to help us with our Social Media. If you think you might be that person please don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more.
Oxford Tri goes Cross Country
Tonight is your deadline if you want to join us and a record number of Oxford Tri Members racing at the first event of the cross country season (you can continue to sign up throughout the season) As a club we will be competing in the Oxfordshire Cross Country League which runs on the first Sunday of every month November through March. It is often the highlight of the year for many club members both on a competitive level and also a social one.
Each race day we will often travel as a team so don’t worry if you don’t have a car etc lifts will be available to the race venue, where we will then run around in the mud for about 7km before finishing with homemade cake or on the odd occasion a pub lunch. The first race of the year is on the 5th of November.
In order to join in with the muddy fun you need to sign up firstly for an English Athletics Membership which is £17 if you don’t already have one. Then your entry for the league which is £20 for the five races which is fantastic value for money. Please see below the two links for signing up and if you do have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kelly who is our amazing Cross-Country Coordinator via EA@oxfordtri.co.uk
