Entrants for this years Outlaw Half Nottingham Triathlon will have another five weeks to prepare, with news that the event has had to change dates from 16th May to 20th June, due to the ongoing impacts and restrictions caused by you-know-what.
“The reason we need to move the event is that the venue cannot legally allow the use of shared facilities. This affects all onsite accommodation as well as competitor and spectator toilets and showers. The earliest this restriction will be lifted is 17 May. Hotels being closed is an additional problem.”
Given the recent news (HERE) the Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has (re)allocated $500,000 of the originally announced $2m Collins Cup prize purse, “to support local races as well as the PTO Professionals who do not qualify to participate in The Collins Cup”, could Holme Pierrepont see another ‘Battle of Britain’, as we did in late 2020 at the Outlaw X?
Given the central location, popularity of the Outlaw series and no Pro race a week earlier at IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, he event would seemingly have all of the ingredients to extend that partnership with the PTO in my opinion.
