Cost

Membership costs just £65 for the year (January to December) and will give you access to all coached and un-coached training sessions without further cost.*

So, for the equivalent of just £1.25 per week, membership of Oxford Tri gives you access to up to six training sessions per week, social events, local discounts and all the fun and support you could ever ask for! Now that is definitely good value for money!

New members joining after July 1st 2013 will be eligible for a discounted membership rate of £35.
