One Step Beyond, organiser of the Outlaw Triathlon, has confirmed that the new Outlaw Half event on 3 July 2016 will be at Holkham Hall in North Norfolk. The new event was announced last week, but the location was kept secret until now.
Holkham Hall is privately owned and a lived-in family home. The Hall is a member of the Treasure Houses group, which consists of ‘ten of the most magnificent palaces, houses and castles in England today.’
Visitors can explore the 3,000-acres grounds, and the National Cycle Network route 1 – Wells and Holkham circuit – passes through the park from the north to south gates. Whilst the triathlon swim stage will take place in the lake in the grounds, there is a beach at Holkham, which is ‘one of the most unspoilt and beautiful stretches of sand in the country.’
As with the original Outlaw Half in Nottingham, One Step Beyond adds that competitors can expect:
- On site camping
- Easy to navigate out-and-back 1900m lake swim
- Fast, flat 56 mile bike course
- Looped 13.1 run course, perfect for spectators
- Amazing venue with some great family activities
- Fun family friendly events on the Saturday pre-event
- First class customer service pre-event and on race weekend
Pre-registration for the new event is open until this Wednesday, 18 November. Signing-up offers first access to the entry system when it opens on 25 November.
The Outlaw Half, Nottingham is sold out with no more places being released. The full distance Outlaw Triathlon has around fifty places remaining. Although, as with the new Outlaw Half in Norfolk, these are expected to be snapped up fast!
