Bicester Triathlon – Pre Blenheim Swims - Sunday Rides
Blenheim Triathlon Volunteering 3rd/4th June
We have again been asked by the organisers of Blenheim Tri if the club can provide volunteer marshals for the weekend. Again, if you’re new to the club, this is a great opportunity to give a bit back to the sport and to see a major event from the “other side” – quite an eye opener sometimes! As Blenheim is such a popular event with first timers (myself included) you really do feel you are helping competitors with their first steps in the sport. And a little more cynically – the club earns £25 for every volunteer and we will receive five free entries for the 2018 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. Friends and family are welcome to volunteer as well – email me as they won’t be able to sign up through the website.

Pre Blenheim Swims
Our pre Blenheim swims are now only a few weeks away and we need to start spreading the word. Liz has some posters that need distributing if anyone can help with this, posters will be available Sunday and Monday at sessions.
We have 2 confirmed rides going out this weekend, Rob Davies will lead Intermediate 1 and Nick Twist will lead intermediate/fast. We hope to also have a fast ride going out. Look out for details on Facebook.
