ABOUT US

Oxford University Modern Pentathlon Association offers one of the university's most challenging and diverse interdisciplinary sports opportunities. We cater to those of all skill levels, from complete beginners to those seeking challenging high-level competition.

 

Modern pentathlon as a sport consists of five disciplines designed to test the complete athlete. The events are spread between four events:

Freestyle swimming (200m)

Épée Fencing

Showjumping/ Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) (new format)

Combined Event (Running (5x600m) and Laser Pistol Shooting)

Check out the new OCR sport here

For the social athlete, OUMPA also offers regular social events with meals, crew dates and nights out being offered throughout term time. The competitions display the team's infamous ability to perform in the notorious 6th and 7th events.

This is an exciting and changing time for the sport of modern pentathlon and a great time to get involved. Watch Team GB take double gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics! We are excited to watch Team GB in the Paris Olympics this year too!

EVENTS

OUMPA runs and competes in several key events throughout the year, so keep your diaries open for these exciting opportunities:

 

  • Novice Varsity Match, MT - A friendly introduction competition for pentathlon beginners to compete against those from Cambridge. Held this year at Oxford on Saturday 11th November 2023.

  • Old Blues, HT - Your chance to compete with the golden oldies themselves and meet some living legends. Though the meal is by far the most famous part, the competition is a good one. Held on Saturday 25th November 2023.

  • Army Tetrathlon, HT  - We invite the army (and the Tabs!) to compete, which is a chance to prove yourself for varsity selection. A friendly competition but a competition nonetheless!

  • BUCS, HT - The national university competition for modern pentathlon. Your last chance to prove yourself before varsity selection. OUMPA have a history of doing Oxford proud at this one. Plus there are shiny medals up for grabs.

  • Varsity, Easter Vac - The Oxford vs Cambridge showdown. Held on neutral ground in Tonbridge, Kent, this is the competition of the year. And oh boy is it a big one. This will be the highlight of your pentathlon career.

  • Cuppers, TT - Bring all your friends along for the ultimate competition to decide which college is truly the best! A friendly, open-to-all competition, which will take place in Hilary term.
