Following hard on the heels of Super League Triathlon, another innovation in the sport, this time from OSB Events. 2018 will see the ‘Super Outlaw‘ launch in London, a stadium-based full distance race on the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games. This looks epic, you’d be a fool to miss out on this one.

Well, of course not…!

The Outlaw Triathlon will step up a gear in 2018 with the launch of a new global spectator event in the heart of London. The new showcase event will take place in a safe, traffic-free environment, which will be perfect for spectators and engagement of a huge television audience.

Long distance triathlon will be presented in a way that it has never been offered before. Using the stadium on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was a dream of event director, Iain Hamilton, after helping to deliver the triathlon events at the London 2012 Games.

Hamilton said: “The Olympics really got me thinking about how to bring together long distance triathlon and massive spectator and television audiences. It’s fantastic to finally launch Super Outlaw and London is just the start!”

The 2.4mile swim leg will take place in the London Aquatics Centre before athletes run to the ArcelorMittal Orbit (the helter-skelter) for transition. They will then ride to the Olympic stadium to complete 450 non-drafting laps on the track. Keeping the athletes right in front of the spectators and TV cameras, the run will also take place within the stadium, covering 105 laps.

Hamilton added: “We’ve managed to attract huge investment, so athletes can expect generous prize money just for finishing. We’re also setting out to have the best goodie bag that anyone has ever seen, in fact, it won’t just be a bag, we’re talking about giving away box loads of free samples of toiletries and tasty pretzel based snacks. This will be an event like no other!”

Entries will open via www.isthisforreal.com later this month.
