The BaRTT series is very popular with members of all abilities and sign-up is recommended in the Event calendar to guarantee a place, although we will accept entries on the day on a first come - first served basis. To ensure the event runs smoothly, and to minimise disruption to local residents, we limit the number of people taking part to 30. If you sign up but are then no longer able to take part, please ensure that you cancel your sign up so that another member can take your place.
Sign up opens 1 week before the session and closes at midnight the night before the event so that the start list can be drawn up by the volunteer time keepers.
Parking, changing and toilet facilities at Oxsrad Sports Centre, Marsh Lane, Marston OX3 0NQ. Transition is across the road in Horseman Close, OX3 0NR. Please do not try and park in Horseman Close - all parking is over the road at Oxsrad. There is a path out of the far corner of Oxsrad carpark that comes out directly opposite Horseman Close by the pelican crossing.
The distance will be approx 1 mile run, 13 mile bike and 2 mile run (1 lap, 2 lap, 2 lap)
