Pre-Blenheim swim sessions – BARTT #1 and Social - Sunday Rides
Well done to everyone who ran London marathon last weekend, there were some impressively fast times, especially in that heat…………...it was hot just spectating!
Pre-Blenheim swim sessions
Our coached Pre-Blenheim Swim series starts next Saturday and will be running on all four Saturdays in May – these sessions are open to members and non-members alike and are great for building confidence in open water. We do still have places available so please pass on the details to anyone that might be interested, more information can be found here - https://oxfordtri.co.uk/pre-blenheim-open-water-swim-sessions-2018
We also need volunteers to help out at these sessions, both in the water and out, so please sign up on the calendar if you can.
BARTT and social
The first Bike and Run Time Trial (BARTT) of the summer season will take place on Tuesday evening, for those new to the club this is our own mini duathlon series that runs every over Tuesday evening through the summer. Entry is now open, so sign up now to guarantee your place or turn up on the evening – spaces should be available. Rear lights are compulsory and front light is advisable if it’s a gloomy evening. Please remember membership cards are required as well. Please arrive and be ready for 6.45 pm for the compulsory briefing, so we can start promptly. We have time keepers in place but please feel free to come along if you want to see what it is all about.
We have arranged a barbeque at Oxsrad afterwards, everyone is welcome but please try and sign-up in advance so we know numbers in advance. This will be £5 to pay on the evening.
