Good Evening OxfordTri Family!
Well Autumn is well and truly here. Hopefully the weather hasn’t put you off to much and that you have still been able to make it out the house for the odd swim, cycle or run.
Lots of exciting stuff in this email including more info on our End of Season + Awards Night, Our AGM and the upcoming Cross Country league. Again just briefly I wanted to mention the Oxford 1/2 on the 15th of October. We are still a few short of the perfect number for helping out at the aid station do be thinking if you can help support the club and this awesome local event by volunteering. You can sign up by clicking HERE.
Have a great weekend.

The sooner you get these the better as it helps us to plan for catering etc. The firm deadline is the close of play on the 15th of October.
We can’t wait to see as many club family as possible for what is set to be an amazing night to round the season off.
Oxford Tri AGM + Social 2023 – 19th October 2023
This a notice to all that our Annual General Meeting will take place on the 19th of October at Oxrad starting at 7pm. There will be pizza provided for all that attend with also the possibility of a trip to the near by Victoria Arms afterwards.
Our Coached Running session at Horspath Track will be postponed in order to allow as many members to attend.
So we can ensure enough enough pizza for all please do sign up HERE if you are planning on attending. It’s also important to say that this is your club and your opportunity to have a say on what the future looks like so please do consider making it a priority if possible, we would love to see as many of our Oxford Tri family there as possible.
We are just finalising the descriptions of the committee roles but please do consider if you could spare a few hours a month to help support the club by serving on committee. This look different depending on the roles which we will share next week.
Oxford Tri goes Cross Country
As some of you may have seen and heard we are fast approaching Cross Country season. As always 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
