This event is organised by Oxford Tri, one of the leading and biggest triathlon clubs in the country.
The venue is at Radley College, which is an independent boarding school set on an 800 acre estate just south of Oxford.
The swim will take place in a 25m indoor pool. Swimmers will start in waves and will be grouped based on expected swim time (to be declared at registration).
The bike course consists of a single lap of the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside surrounding the college. The course is fairly flat with a couple of gentle inclines.
The run course is two laps of a car-free loop in and around the college grounds.
Entrants will be able to register for the event and pick up race numbers before their start time. Photographic identification will be required to verify identity at registration on the day. A timing chip will be given with an ankle strap (these are to be returned at the end of the race).
Start times will be published within the race information pack prior to the event. All cycle racking is to take place before the event starts.
Parking will be available within a 5 minute walk of the venue.
No camping is provided but Oxford campsite is only 10 minutes away by car. ( http://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/campsites/uk/oxfordshire/oxford/oxford )
Presentations will take place shortly after the last person has finished.
Results will be available after the event and uploaded to this page and Stuweb Race Timing ( http://www.stuweb.co.uk/ )
