We’ve been hinting at a new ‘southern’ Outlaw Half event to take place next September and thought we should provide an update on it. The plan was to have this new event live to enter this month. However, the best laid plans don’t always come off…
A venue had been selected and the plan was to open entries this month. However, when an event passes through multiple boroughs and towns, it’s never going to be straightforward to get approval from every single one. We have also come up against ancient covenants around noise, and multiple considerations for the impact on local residents.
We are 100% committed to getting the race up and running for 2018. We are looking at either the first or the fourth weekend of September and the venue is west of London. We can’t say more than that until contracts are signed.
We hope to be in a position to announce the venue by the end of November, but there are a few factors that are out of our control at the moment. Certainly, we’d hope to have the event open before Christmas.
When the venue and date are confirmed, we will reopen the expression of interest form on our website, which will allow VIP access to the entry system.
