Slightly Quieter

Hello OxfordTri Family!

A short and sweet one from me this week. It’s been a real joy to coach at both Leys and Horspath this week and to see lots of new and old faces. I would encourage you to say hello to anyone that regularly comes to one of your sessions that you don’t know their name yet. Yes I realise this is hard when your swimming but it’s a really lovely way to learn about all of the amazing people who make up our club.

As always as we’d love to hear your feedback and ideas. So if there is ever anything please don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself or any of the other committee members.

I hope you have a great weekend.

God Bless


Oxford Aquathlon

We have shared over the past couple of weeks about our Aquathlon that we are partnering with British Triathlon and their “Swim Bike Run” program to run here in Oxford at the Leys Pool and Park.

The Aquathlon will take place on the 28th of April with racing starting at 9am. The format is a 200m Pool Swim and 3km Run. The entry will cost £20 making it an incredibly accessible event to our local community of Oxford and beyond.

We are now at the point where we are really seeking to get the word out. Over the next couple of weeks we will try to get fliers to all of our sessions so please do be thinking if you could possibly put some up at work, your local cafe or perhaps even hand out to a couple of neighbours who might be interested. We also have information about the event on social media the internet so find some links below that you could also share. Also a little shout out to the ladies who are bossing it atm with over 80% of our current sign ups being women!

Secretary Vacancy

As you may have picked up on in our newsletter a few weeks ago we have sadly said Goodbye to Zara who has left Oxford for an incredibly exciting opportunity in Norway. This means that we now have a vacancy in our committee team for Secretary. Last week slightly short of time I posted a list of things that Zara has done in her role as secretary. Reading through it later I realise that it seems like quite a lot but both myself and Zara wanted to highlighted that it’s a role that often it’s a role that takes no more than an hour a week.

We are both more than happy to speak to anyone who is interested in possibly supporting the club through this role. You can reach our by emailing

Cross Country Round 5 – Post Race Social

Next month is our final race of the Cross Country Season on the Sunday the 3rd at Henley Showground. Traditionally we have stopped on route home for some cheese toasties at the Cheese Shed at Nettlebed. This is also where we have our prize giving for those competing in the Cross Country. It’s a great time together so do be thinking if you can join us especially if you are running.
