Hello Oxford Tri Family,
I hope that this finds you all well. Yesterday, Sean Conway completed 102 Ironman distance triathlons back-to-back which is an outrageous achievement. What was amazing was watching the number of different people that got involved in the challenge and supporting Sean through it. Also, six to eight thousand calories a day for 102 days sounds sound lovely too. I could definitely do that without the whole ironman stuff in the middle.
Also this Saturday we are going to be joined by members of Wallingford Triathlon Club at the lake. As a committee we have been looking at how we can partner with other sports clubs and teams in our local area and this is hopefully the first steps in what is going to be a great friendship for years to come. Please do make sure to make them feel welcome.
As always if you want to get in touch don’t hesitate to reach out to me via firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great weekend,
Oxfordshire Triathlon Series – Club Champs 20th August
With 21 members racing at the weekend it is only right that we aim to go even better for the next one in just seven weeks time, right?
The Oxfordshire Triathlon Series at Queenford Lake. It’s a 1km open water swim, a scenic, fast yet challenging 35km bike route and a flat 7.5km run on Sunday the 20th of August.
Thanks to our club captain Sarah we have also managed to secure a 10% discount which makes it a really reasonable price considering the distance. This can be found under My Account and Partners and Discounts on the website found here Partners & Discounts – Oxford Tri. I have already signed up again as have five other members so we are at six so far, will you be next?
Thoughts for this one was to book a table in the Wandering Cafe afterwards.

Oxford 1/2 Marathon
One for the diaries. On the 15th of October it is the Oxford 1/2 Marathon. The organisers have asked us if we would be up to the challenge of running one of the aid stations. It is the same people who run Blenheim Tri whom a number of us volunteered at and we as a club benefit hugely from supporting these kinds of events. It is also just a great way to give back to our local sporting community. They have also asked if we would have anyone in the club who would be keen to act as a pacers too. More details to follow soon.
