The Outlaw Half Nottingham is one of Britain’s most popular events, often selling out in a matter of minutes. The Middle Distance event covers a 1.2 mile open water swim, 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run, which must be completed in less than nine hours.
The swim takes place in the regatta lake in wave starts. A single out and back course makes it easy to navigate and then with a quick escape via a very short transition, you are straight out on your bike. The roads around Nottinghamshire offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course will be fast, but don't underestimate it - especially if it's a windy day!
On returning to the National Water Sports Centre, the flat multi-lap course around the lake and river path offers a feed station every mile or so and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.
The start, the swim, much of the run and the finish are all conveniently located together, making excellent spectator and family viewing at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.
There is on-site camping, family friendly activities as well as excellent city centre hotels just two to three miles down the road. There are thousands of car parking spaces available; making this is the perfect athlete and spectator experience.
