Newbury Duathlon and Swim Caps – Oxford Tri Newsletter

Good Evening Oxford Tri Family,  

I hope that you have all had a great week and that the wind and ice didn’t get in the way too much at the start. I’ve been trying to get back into things after a week of nights at work, especially with Newbury Duathlon just over a month away. More information about Newbury and some other things going on within the club can be found below. 

Also, a little reminded that a number of members run at the Horspath Parkrun on Saturday mornings at 9am. I’ll be there this weekend and it would be amazing to see some more friendly faces whilst jogging around. 

I hope that you all have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing some of you at some sessions this week. 

God Bless


Newbury Duathlon 

The 2nd event of our Oxford Tri Club champs is the Newbury Duathlon which is taking place on the 16th of April. It is an amazing race which I took part in with a number of Oxford Tri representatives last year. It comprises of a 5km run which has a combination of off road and rural paths a 25km bike that I can’t really remember a huge amount about.. and the same 5km run to finish. 

We will also be having a pub lunch afterwards at the Fox at Peasemore , which was incredibly successful last year, the food is amazing!

The entry fee is incredible value so if you can do sign up here

I already know there is a good number of members taking part so if transport is an issue please do let me know. 100% we will be able to sort you out. 

Swim Cap Sale

During the last week of this month commencing the 27th of March, you will have the opportunity to purchase our amazing Oxford Tri Swim Caps at all of our swim sessions. Not only are they great quality and look awesome but they give you a chance to make sure that everyone else in the pool knows that you mean business. As kindly modelled by Kelly and Sarah whilst Kelly was getting his award for being member of the month for January these will be £5 each. We are just finalising how we can make payment as streamline as possible which will be included in next weeks newsletter.

Club Website

You may have noticed that our website has looked slightly differently lately. We are very grateful for Lee who has been working to update and simplify what we currently have. With this in mind if you do have any suggestions in terms of ways to improve our website or you experience any issues with it please feel free to get in touch with myself via the chair email.
