Outlaw entries reopened and course-record bonus pot doubled

There's up to £3,000 up for grabs if you can break the Outlaw Triathlon course record on July 25 and entries have now been reopened.

Outlaw Triathlon entries are briefly re-open until midnight on Tuesday and organisers, OSB Events, have doubled the course record bonus to a £3,000 prize purse.

Outlaw entries closed some time ago, but given the unusual times that we are in, a brief opportunity has opened for new entrants. With the ongoing unpredictability of European travel, several athletes have already taken up the chance to race over the Outlaw course in Nottingham on 25 July.

For anyone in shape to be ready for a 2.4mile lake swim, 112mile bike ride and 26.2mile run in two weeks’ time, you can click here to enter. For those in really exceptional shape, the usual £1,500 prize purse for course records has been doubled to £3000 for this year’s race.

The money is split equally between male and female competitors if both records are broken. The full amount is paid if only one record is surpassed.

Current Outlaw course records:

  • Male Record Holder – Kit Walker (2017) 8:39:37
  • Female Record Holder – Simone Mitchell (2018) 9:15:44

Kit Walker is back this year and starts as athlete number one given his status as the current record holder. Aside from him, the key contenders on 25 July might be Andrew Horsfall Turner and Lewis Eccleston, but it may be worth waiting until after the re-entry window to start making predictions!

Simone Mitchell seems unlikely to enter having finished fourth at IRONMAN Lanzarote last weekend. Claire Weller is taking on the longer race after good performances at both Outlaw Half Nottingham and Outlaw Half Holkham already this season, and Rebecca Duxbury (Zwift Academy Tri Team) should be in with a shout after a hugely impressive performance at Outlaw X, where she was by far the fastest age group athlete.
