'Great Course, friendly, well run, reasonable price and you get the option of a beer at the end!'
The Oxfordshire Triathlon Series for 2023 will consist of 2 races spread across the summer, July and August.
All races feature a 1km open water swim, a scenic, fast yet challenging 35km bike route and a flat 7.5km run.
All races take place on a Sunday; July 2nd and August 20th 2022.
For a region with numerous triathlon clubs, keen individual athletes and beautiful surroundings, Oxfordshire was in need of its own open-water swim triathlon series.
Apart from the wonderful Blenheim Triathlon which happens early in the year, we felt a need to provide more racing opportunities in this region.
By offering 2 races it means that athletes can race the same course twice over of the year and measure their progression, or those with busy schedules should be able to attend perhaps 1 or 2, therefore not missing out on the fun!
All races take place at the fantastic Queenford Water Park, Dorchester, Oxon, OX10 7PQ.
A venue already hugely popular with triathletes from all over the South, the crystal clear water makes an ideal venue for the open water swim,
The beautiful Oxfordshire countryside provides a fantastic bike lap, with a mixture of fast flat sections and short sharp kickers!
The run takes place around the perimeter of the lake, ensuring a fast, flat, traffic free lap.
These distances have been specifically chosen by the race organiser to offer a challenge to those new to triathlon, looking to race further than a sprint, while at the same time providing a shorter alternative to those that typically race longer.
We are also keen for local clubs and teams to use these as either a standalone one off 'Club Champs' or a series of races throughout the year to crown their 'Club Champion!'
We are offering a big discount to any clubs wishing to use this as part of their club championships.
