Good Evening Oxford Tri Family,
I hope that this finds you all well. Firstly, a massive shout out to Sam, Jamie and Clayton the only individuals either brave or crazy enough to attend track last night. There were definitely points where I felt googles and a pool buoy may have assisted more than running shoes.
Next a massively exciting moment for the club. As a committee over the past couple of months we have been working on a strategy which will help guide us both now and in the future. The aim of the strategy is to help give a focus to what we are doing as a club and to help show to those outside the club what Oxford Tri is all about. So please see below our Oxford Tri 2025 Strategy. Do check it out and do get in touch with me or any of the rest of the committee if you have any thoughts off the back of it.
I hope you all have a great weekend, also a little heads up that the Parkrun at Horspath has been cancelled this week.
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
Next week starting 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, these will be £5 each. Coaches at each of the swim sessions will have the swim caps and payment should be done as Cash, so please do make an attempt to try and bring the correct change if you are planning on buying one.
