Go Tri Events
Every year we run a series of four short distance pool based triathlons near Oxford at The Park Club Milton. Enter one as a taster or the whole series and try to improve. Suitable for novices just getting into triathlon for the first time. These are also a great opportunity to practice your transitions and running off the bike! To keep the costs down (£15 per race) rather than chip timing, your total finish time will be given or can time your own splits.
