Weekly Update 14 October 2022

Hi everyone

Back to reality this week after returning to the UK.

A lot of important announcements this week:

Firstly we have the Club Annual General Meeting next Tuesday, with options to participate both in person (free pizza!) or remotely. We still need some nominations for key committee roles going forwards. Don’t forget that this is YOUR Club and it’s member led and run. If you love the coaching and sessions and community then people need to step up and take their turns – don’t worry there is plenty of support and guidance available, and it is not a life sentence! The roles we need nominations for include Chair, Secretary and Social Media. Nominations to Jon secretary@oxfordtri.co.uk please!

As a result of the AGM there’s no swim at Thame this week and static bike is earlier to allow Club members to do their session and shower after having earned their FREE pizza!

The XC season is starting in early November and Oxford Tri is again entering the Oxfordshire Cross Country League. See http://www.oxonxc.org.uk/ for more details. These events are held on the first Sunday of each month between November and March and normally are attended by a sizeable Oxford Tri Mens and Womens team.

The entry procedure for this year has changed a bit and members who want to run need to both join English Athletics and sign up for the league so we can enter you. The links you need for this are below:


Our internal deadline to get you signed up for the first race is 21st October so you need to get signed up by then.

We also have our Club annual dinner and awards coming up soon on 4 November – tickets available here, please sign up by 20 October to help us plan the catering.

Finally, the racing season has not quite ended – all the very best of luck to our Club members racing Ironman Portugal including first timers at the full distance Leftteris and Tim.

Best wishes

Nick Wenban-Smith – chair@oxfordtri.co.uk
