Sprint Tri and Club Champs Relay Tri – BaRTT # 8 - Steady Ride and Sunday Rides

 

Club Sprint Tri – August 28th

With three weeks to go until our Sprint Tri at Radley we’re having a little push on entries. If you are thinking of entering or know someone that might be interested then it’s time to get those entries in!

And as ever we rely heavily on club members volunteering to run the event – we need plenty more to be able to run the event safely. So if you’re not racing then please do try and sign-up for volunteering. It’s actually great fun and very rewarding to be giving back to the sport and the club!

Club Relay Triathlon

Your Captains will soon be emailing everyone with further information on the Club Relay Tri on the 20th August. They will be asking for your expected times over race distances – we will need this to put together teams of three. We will be aiming to make teams as even as possible so that every team and team member has every reason to race as hard as possible. And anyone suspected of sandbagging their times.....well – you can guess!

The swim is confirmed as 500 metres around buoys from the beach at Queenford (we will have the lake to ourselves), then a 15k bike consisting of all left turns via Berinsfield, Shillingford, Waborough, Newington and Drayton St Leonard (Bike route here: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/15977394). The run is 5k and consists of two laps entirely on traffic free paths around the lake itself.

 Sign-up is now open so please express your interest here: https://oxfordtri.co.uk/events/club-sprint-relay-triathlon

 

BaRTT # 8 Registration open

Registration is open for next Tuesday’s fortnightly Bike and Run duathlon. There will only be one more regular Bartt after this and then the season handicap finale so time to give it a go if you haven’t already! As last time. Please sign-up as normal on the website and additionally on the “Click here to register” button, also on the Calendar page. This enters your details straight into our timing app and streamlines the pre-event procedure considerably.

Steady Ride Series and Sunday rides

This Sunday I will lead the last Steady ride in the current series – route to be confirmed on FB but likely to be around 35 miles with some medium hills to challenge. Dave Broadribb will lead Intermediate 2 and Dana will lead a Fast ride of 100k/60mile, out to the west via Burford and Lechlade – plenty of climbing to entertain (route here: https://www.strava.com/routes/9976305 )!

 Have a great week!
