The Oswestry Olympians are North West Shropshire’s leading running, athletics and triathlon club and we are fully supporting the Oswestry Half Marathon.
We like to think our friendly club caters for all abilities, from beginners to experienced marathon runners. We have around 100 adult members, many of whom enjoy social running while others will regularly compete in road, fell and multi terrain races of various distances in our region and all over the UK. We meet regularly for training. Throughout the summer months we organise alternative training runs in the fabulous countryside around us, meeting at different places in the area. In the winter months the club competes in the North Wales Cross Country League at 5 venues. We organise various races each year such as the Ellesmere 10k, and Park Hall 5k and help out at Mynydd Myfyr and Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon.
Oswestry Olympians Juniors has a regular membership of around 100 young athletes ranging in age from 9 to 18 and draws young people from Oswestry and the surrounding area of North Shropshire and over the Welsh border. We have coaches who cover most athletic disciplines and our training sessions are generally divided by age into “Under 11”, “Under 13” and “Under 15” who are 13 years and over. Through the winter we train predominantly indoors in the Marches School sportshall :- Circuit training, Weight training, Plyometrics and Sports Hall athletics activities. We also run an outdoor Saturday morning session of cross-country, hill running, sprints etc. There are also a number of swimming sessions at Rhyn Park for the Triathletes group but open to all members as well.
OO Tri are a very friendly bunch, with varied backgrounds, experience and achievement lists. Within the club there are beginners working towards their first events through to seasoned athletes, all training/racing hard, towards their chosen race distance. Whatever your goals, there are members at the same stage as you. We are keen to support all members. From those just racing faster in their chosen distance, through to the Iron Man athletes. We are particularly proud to have a large proportion of female athletes and junior members.
New Members are always warmly welcomed. Please see www.oswestryolympians.com for further details.
