MEET THE COMMITTEE
Get in touch if you have any questions
Hi, I'm Emma, I'm a 3rd year biologist at Catz and I'm this year's president. I joined the club as a fresher having never really done any of the three sports before, and soon realised how much I love it.
I've had a great time training with the club over the last two years and so hopefully as president I'll be able to get more people into triathlon too!
We're one of the friendliest sports club in Oxford, so whether you're a complete beginner or an elite athlete, you'll definitely fit right in.
There's always people to train with no matter what level you're at. So if you have any questions about the club feel free to email me, or just come along to a session and see if you like it.
Hi, I’m Melissa. I am a History finalist at LMH and I’ll be your Women’s Captain this year. Although I’d been running for years, I got talked into trying my hand at cycling and swimming at Freshers’ Fair. I was almost instantly hooked - triathlon really is three times the fun.
Since then I have loved training and competing for OUTriC (both in Oxford and Tenerife!) and had the best time as Secretary last year. I am really looking forward to welcoming lots of new members again this year. Please get in touch if you have any questions about training or racing, I’m always up for a chat!
Hey, I'm Jonny and I'll be your men's captain for 2019/20. I joined OUTriC last year during the first year of my DPhil studying chemistry at Oxford. Previously I was at the University of Sheffield where I spent most of my time racing on bikes until my final year where I decided to give triathlon a go - I was instantly hooked!
I will be around at as many sessions as I can throughout the year, where I will be available to talk about getting started with triathlon, the dos and don'ts of racing, and more importantly anything you could possibly imagine about bikes! I look forward to training with you all this year!
Hi, I’m Emma. I am a second year law student and am this year’s treasurer. I joined the triathlon club at the start of first year hoping to try something new. Admittedly I already run, swan and had done some cycling but I hadn’t ever put them together. I’ve really enjoyed being part of the triathlon club this year and would definitely recommend giving triathlon a go!
My job is to manage the club's finances, whether it's budgeting for new equipment or working out membership fees. Feel free to email me if you have questions about anything from memberships fees to gear ratios, I'm always happy to help. If you have any concerns about payments just let me know and everything will always be confidential.
Hello, I’m Matt the club secretary and studying a masters in physics. Like many others I started triathlon from a background in lightweight rowing, but, unlike most, my main aim was to beat my brother at BUCS Triathlon.
Along the way I’ve found the club to be extremely warm, friendly, and a real highlight of my university experience. Whether you’re looking to set club records or just get fitter, OUTriC will be a welcoming environment. Send me or anyone else on committee an email if you’ve got any questions.
Hello, my name is Jess and I am a 4th year Chemistry student. I joined the triathlon club in my 1st year and have found it a very welcoming and friendly club.
I am excited to be one of the social secretaries this year with Seren. We plan to organise lots of fun socials including post swimming Friday pub, termly meals, cafe trips and crew dates. If you have any ideas for socials, please get in touch!
Hello! I’m Seren, 4th year and medic and your social sec (along with Jess) for this year!! I’ve been part of OUTriC since I was a fresher having come from a background in competitive swimming.
I’m so excited to organise events to bring OU triathletes together outside of training - from pub trips, to annual dinners, to crewdates, I’ll be there to meet allllll you social needs!
I’m Lizzie and I’ll be your Web Officer this year. I joined OUTriC 3.5 years ago as a novice, originally intending to cycle/swim just as a way to supplement my running. But I ended up loving the variety of training (I’ve even grown to enjoy open-water swimming) and now triathlon has replaced athletics as my main sport!
Get in touch if you have any questions or any news you would like included on the website (or the club social media). OUTriC is a super friendly, welcoming club and I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I have!
SPONSORSHIP AND ALUMNI OFFICER
Hey, I’m Alice. I’m a 5th year medic and this is my fourth year in the club so am happy to answer any questions.
This year I’ll be the sponsorship and alumni officer - let me know if you have any sponsor suggestions.
NOVICE AND WELFARE OFFICER
Hey I’m Immy and I’m a 4th year medic at GTC. I made the switch from rowing to triathlon last year and have absolutely loved it (my friends have been especially grateful for the change from awful rowing chat to awful tri chat).
I’m a friendly person and love getting to know new people, so please introduce yourself if you see me at any sessions or have any questions about joining. See you at training for some swim bike FUN!!
Hi, I’m Laurence and I’m in my 4th year of Maths & CompSci at New College. I took up triathlon at the beginning of last year as an alternative to college rowing (like many people!) and have loved how friendly the whole club has been.
Hopefully as General Officer in the coming year I can help the club run as smoothly as it has this year, and I’m looking forward to what should be a fantastic year for OUTriC!
