The ninth Outlaw Triathlon is all set for summer 2018. 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. As long as you can cover the distance in 17 hours or less, you will become an Outlaw. Six men have completed it every year since the Outlaw was launched in 2010; can they come back and finish it for a ninth time this year? And will you be joining them as a competitor or spectator?

The event begins with a mass swim start in the Regatta Lake at Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre. It’s an out and back swim course which is 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 Nottinghamshire are ideal for fast riding (time trial bike friendly) and there is only the odd short climb to challenge you, but don’t underestimate the wind!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the flat 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 at the finish 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.

Outlaw has been recognised as 220 Triathlon Magazine's Event of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 & 2017 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. We put on free spectator buses to see athletes on the bike course, and much of the run course is within the grounds of the centre, meaning that spectators can get up close to the athletes throughout the event. 

Important things to note:

  • You must register on either Friday 27 or Saturday 28 July.
  • Mandatory race briefings take place on Saturday 28 July.
  • Bike racking takes place on Saturday 28 July only (up to 5pm).
  • Once you have entered, we will keep in touch with you via email with race updates.
  • Approx 3 weeks before the event, we will publish the final race information and start numbers.
  • Race packs are to be collected during registration, we do not post these out to you.

There is 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.
