Firstly congratulations to our victorious IM Portugal racers last weekend, with a podium spot and Kona place for coach Sean and successful long distance debuts for Tim and Lefteris. You can read their race reports here and here.
We held the AGM on Tuesday and it was great to see so many Club members and have some really good engagement on the future strategy and direction of the Club going forwards. A huge thank you and welcome to our new Committee, a pleasing mix of new faces and repeat offenders, they deserve your support in their positions for 2023:
Treasurer: Eleanor Cameron
Secretary: Sarah Dawson
General Committee Members: Zara, Jane, Grace, Craig, Paul, Liam, Stuart and Lefteris
Website officer: Lee Watson
Club Captain: Sarah Spruytenburg
There are still a couple of key roles to fill before January, not least new Head Coach and Chair … your Club will not continue without some volunteers for these positions, you have been warned!
Back to regular news and there are a couple of important deadlines coming up.
Firstly for the XC season after a few teething issues the entry into the Oxfordshire Cross Country League has been extended to next Friday 28 October, see http://www.oxonxc.org.uk/ for more details. The links you need for this are below:
Secondly we’ve had a great response to the Club annual dinner and awards on 4 November. The catering order needs to be in on Monday so final call for sign is here. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to spend the evening catching up with your fellow Club members and seeing the outcome of voting for this year’s awards.
Finally, I have written up my race report from Ironman Hawai’i, in case anyone has some severe insomnia!
