Outlaw NottinghamOutlaw Triathlon

The seventh Outlaw Triathlon is all set for summer 2016. One of Nottingham's key sporting events, the Outlaw has become (almost) even more legendary than Robin Hood, the Major Oak and Brian Clough!

Those who have conquered the Outlaw Triathlon are remembered in local folklore for having outwitted the Sheriff to complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run. Six men have completed it every year since the Outlaw was launched in 2010; can they come back and finish it for a seventh time this year? And will you be joining them as a competitor or spectator?

Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre hosts the Outlaw on 24 July 2016. As long as you can cover the distance in 17 hours or less, you will become an Outlaw.

The view from transition Outlaw Triathlon

The swim takes place in the regatta lake. A single out and back course makes the swim easy to navigate. With transition right next to the swim exit you'll have every opportunity to set a super-quick time and even faster escape onto your bike. The roads around Nottingham offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course is fast, but don't underestimate it - it's not totally flat and you'll need to use your whit and experience to get around it with enough left in the legs for the run, and be prepared for it to be very tough if it's a windy day!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path. You'll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment. The multi-lap course, which has been measured by UK Athletics, offers a feed station every mile or so, and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.

On arrival you will receive a hero's welcome and be crowned a modern day Outlaw. Then you can enjoy the festival atmosphere with thousands of spectators cheering the athletes home until the sun finally sets on a spectacular day of racing.

If you think you're up to the challenge, join 1450 other would-be Outlaws in Nottingham, UK, for the event which has been recognised as 220 Triathlon Magazine's Event of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, Beyond Going Long's Event of the Year for 2012 and British Triathlon's Event of the Year in 2011.

The Outlaw Triathlon starts, finishes and has both transitions at the National Water Sports Centre. Not only that, we put on free spectator busses to see athletes on the multi lap bike course, and much of the run course is with the grounds of the centre, meaning that spectators can get up close to the athletes throughout the event.

There is plenty of on-site camping as well as city centre hotels just two miles away. With thousands of car parking spaces available, this is the perfect athlete and spectator experience.
