Details of Outlaw Half Holkham Elite Wave Released

The Outlaw Half Holkham will have an elite wave at the 2 July middle distance event this summer. Competitors can opt into the elite wave, which will go off first and allow head-to-head racing between the fastest competitors. The Outlaw Half Holkham features a £1500 prize pot for course record breakers.

This is the first time OSB Events has offered an elite wave at any of their Outlaw events since they were first launched in 2010

Event director, Adam Moffat commented: “Athletes have been asking us for an elite wave, so we will trial it in Holkham. It will create a better spectacle for people who come along to watch. It never feels quite right that the first person across the finishing line may not be the winner because someone in a later wave goes faster, so this will prevent that from happening.”

He added: “We’re hoping to attract a good quality field to challenge the course records set by Cat Faux and Reece Barclay last year.”

Competitors can opt into the elite wave and the aim is to have a wave of around fifty male and female athletes. It is not necessary to hold a professional racing license, or to have raced as a professional previously. Competitors in the elite wave will not be eligible for age-group prizes, but will have separate prizes for the overall top competitors. Racing in the elite wave is optional, but competitors in the age-group waves will not be eligible for overall prizes.
