BARTT – Blenheim Volunteering - Banbury Triathlon - Sunday Rides
Tuesday sees the second in our BARTT series for this summer and sign up is now open. We do also need a couple of volunteers to help with timekeeping so please consider signing up here, https://oxfordtri.co.uk/events/bartt-volunteering-13 - it’s a great way to find out more about the event.
Blenheim Triathlon volunteering
Thank you to all of you who have signed up already to volunteer at Blenheim over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd June but we could still do with some more volunteers. As well as the satisfaction from helping competitors on the day, the club also earns £25 for every volunteer and we will receive five free entries for the 2019 event which will be raffled to all volunteers.
We tend to look after the transition area, where our experience really can make a difference. It is a long day – but very rewarding. So please do consider volunteering for at least one day if you can. It is also possible to race and volunteer. Friends and family are welcome to volunteer as well – email me as they won’t be able to sign up through the website.

Banbury Sprint Triathlon
Banbury sprint is the next race in our Club Championships and takes place next weekend, 20th May. Entries still open if you fancy earning some points at this local event, there is usually a lot of support from fellow club members - https://www.neversecondsportsevents.com/2018-sprint-super-sprint-relay-and-aquabike.html

Fast– (17.5mph/28kph and above) led by Alain Torri
Watch out for details of routes on Facebook.
