Weekly Update 17 June 2022

Hi Everyone

Firstly well done to Craig for racing Stafford 70.3 last week, you can read his race report here. Races are now coming up fast and furious so please do let us know if you are racing and even better write up a report for all the Club members to hear about the experience – whether good, bad or ugly!

The first Tuesday evening open water swim was a big success, thanks again to Grace for doing the hard yards to secure the venue. As ever, these sessions do cost the Club and are included FOR FREE in your membership so please make use of these to the fullest extent possible

A big thank you to Alice and Holly Ann for volunteering to do lake safety tomorrow morning, it’s been such a lovely week for weather the water is now very pleasant whether you choose to wear a wetsuit or not. It’s the perfect way to start the weekend and so I’d encourage everyone to give it a go – plenty of spaces available and advice etc for novices who’ve not used this excellent venue before. Coffee and cakes and bacon sandwiches after!

Two other news items: firstly a heads up that we are organising a group entry to do the Blenheim Weekend Warrior in 2023, many thanks to Lee for leading this initiative and securing discounts for Club members and a dedicated racking space. Keep a watch out for entry info, details of prizes (most triathlons completed, fastest time, most spectacular crash, best fancy dress etc). Secondly, on Saturday 2 July our home and charity partner Oxsrad is holding an Open Fun Day between 10am and 4pm. It would be great if Club members could support this fund raising initiative for this important charity,

Don’t forget to take plenty of water and suncream if you are out training this weekend!

Have a great week,

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