Member of the Month, Last Call For Burgers and Beers @ The Lake and

Hello OxfordTri Family, 

I hope that this finds you well and a huge shout out to everyone who raced or volunteered over the weekend.

Starting off with May’s Member of the Month we felt that it was only fitting to dedicate it to Kelly Lehmann.

Kelly was hoping to raise money for his favourite charity when running the Paris Marathon. Although he’ll no longer be able to achieve this himself, we’re privileged to share this to help continue to raise as much as we can in his memory. As a committee we are planning on creating some form of club challenge around the time that he was meant to take part on this so do watch out for this in the future.

CHristopher Kelly is fundraising for Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia & Coloboma Support (MACS) (

Finally, and there’s more information below a reminder to sign up for our Burgers and Beers social at the lake next Wednesday. It’s going to be a great time together socialising post swim.

Have a great weekend and good luck to anyone doing Windsor Triathlon, I’ll see you there!

God Bless

This will involve the opportunity to swim as part of our normal OxfordTri Wednesday Night Social Swim 7-8pm. With the Burgers and Beers served from 7:30 (dietary requirements and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks will be provided).

***Please email any dietary requirements to Graceë Gilbert (***

The cost is £10 per person and this will include a minimum of 1 burger and 2 beverages.

This year we are using a ticketed system to try and speed up the serving system and to enable us to better gauge the quantities of food and drink for the evening. Tickets are limited so if you know you can make it, please do buy them as soon as possible.

Deadline for buying tickets will be 10pm on the 9th of June after this point we will not be able to guarantee that you will be able to get food/drink.

We would love for friends and family to join us and on this occasion, they will be able to join in the 7-8pm swim as long as they are an adult, can swim 400m unaided, have the correct kit (Tow Float and Bright Swim Cap) and have signed up for our Free Open Water Swimming Familiarisation Membership (this enables us to store ICE details)

The Oxfordshire Triathlon – 26th June – Club Champs

On 26th June it’s the 1st race of 2 in the Oxfordshire Triathlon series, a great race which is a bit longer than sprint but not quite a full Olympic distance. Ideal for anyone moving up from Sprint distance. The best part is that it’s so local and so will be lots of Oxford Triers and supporters.

We have a 10% off discount code which can be found when logged in under your Account and then Partners and Discounts

More information about the race can be found here –

Bike and Run Time Trial (BaRTT) – Stuart

BaRTT on a Tuesday night at Oxsrad has slowly been growing in popularity. This is a great opportunity to test your bike, run and transition skills, or hone your race preparation, all with a bit of fun thrown in with fellow members. 

The run route is a 1-mile loop around Old Marston with a mix of pavement, path and sports field and the bike route is over a 6-mile loop, familiar to many, up the hill into Elsfield and back though Woodeaton.

Athletes start in groups of similar level (sometimes individually) with time gaps between each group. Slower athletes start earlier, and faster athletes start later to ensure that no one is left on the course on their own and everyone finishes at about the same time.


18:50 – Pre-event brief – All athletes to attend

19:01 – First athlete starts

19:20 – Last athlete starts

20:30 – Everyone finished

20:45 – Optional liquid refreshment (at the nearest pub)

More information and sign up can be found on our website
