Trinity Boat Club Takes on Oxford Half Marathon

12 October 2023

Trinity College Boat Club (TCBC) are undertaking a major fundraising effort for the club’s future by taking part in the Oxford Half Marathon.

Sixteen members of the boat club will be among the 13,000 runners taking part in the 13.1-mile race around the city of Oxford On Sunday 15 October. The race starts just outside Trinity on Broad Street and finishes around the corner on Parks Road. TCBC have a target of just over £2,600 to raise for equipment and training support.

TCBC Secretary Olivia Burgess says: ‘Trinity College Boat Club exists only with the support of previous members, and donors who generously give to the club. We are organising this fundraiser to support the club in its goal to maintain a high standard of equipment, and experience so that when Trinity's students of tomorrow arrive ready to study, they have the opportunity to row to the same standard as we currently enjoy. Donations to this fundraiser will help ensure that come rain or shine, victory or defeat, the boat club can always thrive in the knowledge that it has the fundamental support needed to operate.’

The TCBC JustGiving campaign page is now closed, however, donations to TCBC can be made via the college’s website here:
