"I'm so glad I signed up to race!"
My first race with the OUTriC was the Varsity Duathlon. Coming into the race, I was very firmly in the novice category - my first time on a road bike was 3 months before, and I had only started running seriously 5 months before that. My novice-ness made me incredibly apprehensive to sign up for the race, but in retrospect I am so glad I did. OUTriC provided amazing support before, during, and after the race, helping with training plans, and any other questions I might have. People of all abilities participated, creating a fun and supportive atmosphere on the day. The day was capped off with a great pub lunch with our Cambridge counterparts. I am now looking forward to the next race!
