Ollie, who was supported towards his London 2012 Paralympic medal haul by OASIS, will set off the first leg of the event after a fun warm up at Ashfield School on Sunday 14th April at around 10am.


  • Tri 1 will follow the warm up and is a challenge to walk, run or wheelchair a mile or more.
  • Tri 2 challenges you to bring your bike and cycle up to 5 Miles (20 laps around the track).


You can register on the day for £5 per entrant from 9.00 – 9.45am to take part in the Tri 1 or 2. All entry fees are donated to OASIS.  The swim event will take place at the Lammas Leisure Centre in the afternoon and is for pre-registered participants only.

A clothing collection by the Star Foundation will also take place in the Ashfield School car park with all proceeds being invested back into local community sport and free swimming. Unwanted items should be bagged up and taken to the Star Foundation van.

Carol Hallam, Sports Development Officer at Ashfield District Council said: “We are challenging as many people as possible to take part. It’s a fun way to exercise at your own pace and everyone who completes each challenge will receive a medal.”
