Sprint Tri and Sunday Volunteers - Club Champs Relay Tri results – No Headington Swim – Kidlington Swim returns - Sunday Rides


Sprint Tri - Sunday afternoon -  Volunteers needed

Entry has now closed for Sunday’s SELL OUT Sprint Tri at Radley and the forecast is looking good. Tracy is still looking for volunteers though – a few needed on Monday for the race but in particular for the Sunday afternoon to set up the course. If you can spare two or three hours on Sunday afternoon it would be much appreciated. Main roles are sign-posting the bike and run course, marking pot holes (yes – really!) and setting up registration and check in areas. Peroni and Club Champs points up for grabs!

Sunday volunteer sign-up here:


Club Champs Relay

All seemed to go well at the Sprint Relay at Queenford last Sunday. The venue worked out really well and everyone had some great racing and polished off all the burgers and most of the beer afterwards. Many thanks to the volunteers who made it all happen so smoothly! Results are here and have been updated to show Gold, Silver and Bronze individual splits for both men and women now, as well as team results:


No Headington Swim

As it’s a bank holiday on Monday, there will be no Headington swim next week.


Kidlington Swim returns

After a well deserved summer break, Jane and Ian will be back coaching at Kidlington on Friday evenings – 7pm normal time, first session Sept 1st Sign-up opens this evening here:


Sunday Rides

So far we don’t have any ride leaders in place for Sunday morning so feel free to meet up at Oxsrad and make a plan or post something on FB in advance.


An excellent AG win for Louise Francis last weekend at the Monster Middle – not bad for first go at half distance! Also a strong result for Andrew Thorndyke coming in 16th overall.


Good luck to everyone racing at Oxfordshire’s PREMIER Sprint Tri on Bank Holiday Monday (all new PB run course for 2017), as organised by the UK’s PREMIER Tri club!

And finally good luck to Nathan Blake – going long at the ITU World Champs in Penticton on Sunday morning – Oxford Tri expects......! Have a GREAT one Nathan!
