Entries for Nottingham’s award-winning Outlaw Triathlon have now closed as this year’s event on 23 July has once again sold out. The only way to gain entry for the 2017 event on 23 July is via Cancer Research UK. The organising team at OSB Events note that entries for the Outlaw Half Holkham, taking place on 2 July, remain open ‘at the moment’.
The Outlaw was first launched by OSB Events in 2010 and saw 715 people finish the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and marathon run. The event has grown steadily since then, with 1400 having entered for 2017.
Just six athletes have completed every edition of the full distance Outlaw, and all of them will be back this year. OSB Events adds that the long distance triathlon was voted the most novice friendly event in Europe earlier this year, and it sees a ‘higher percentage of female competitors compared with the average for long distance races’.
The Outlaw also attracts some top quality athletes, and, as in 2016, will be televised by Channel 4 TV again this year.
