Another great Outlaw event. Quite lonely away from the house during the run, but great marshalls helped to fill the gaps. I'll be back again :)… read more

Norfolk is not flat, both run and bike course lumpy. The warning about risk of punctures was correct, carry spares and if camping at Holkham, beware no network on BT.. it was a long night.<br />… read more

Route description
Route description

The swim takes place in the private lake on Holkham Estate against the backdrop of the impressive Holkham Hall, in waved starting groups. A single looped course is followed by just a short run to transition.

Once out of the water, the undulating, one lap bike course will take you on an unforgettable journey through some of the most beautiful countryside and coastal roads North Norfolk has to offer.

The run course undulates around the spectacular Holkham Estate where the stunning scenery and crowd support will help combat any fatigue as you power towards the finish line!

Excellent event all round. Would totally recommend as a first 70.3. Just don’t swallow the lake water, as I am currently suffering for doing just that! 🤢

Swim; in a lake flat and easy but some pinch points.<br />Bike; rolling Norfolk single loop<br />Run: three loops of undulating tarmac, gravel and wood tracks.<br />Typical friendly well organised Outlaw event.

2nd time out at Holkham, and was an even better experience than last year. Survived the swim, blasted it on the bike and was relaxed on the run. Sub 6 hrs, job done!

Fantastic volunteers make this event. The bike and run courses are tough but fun. The swim is pretty manky!....

What a brilliant event! Wish the warning of flint roads had come before my bike was racked and locked away as would have used tubeless wheels and not the aeros (2 punctures). Volunteers were stars. While a 3 lap half marathon is hard psychologically it does mean plenty of on course support.

This is a fabulous race. The setting is dramatic and interesting with a 1.2 mile swim in the lake which was a great deal clearer than in other years, a 56 mile bike around the rolling Norfolk hills and a tough 13.1 mile run at the end through Holkham park over 3 laps. The support is tremendous on the run with cheering crowds and the feed stations are brilliant too and very welcome. Transition is slick as is the start and finish with excellent chip timing. The only downside this year was registration which took over an hour while we waiting in the drizzle and the lunch at the end had a massive queue - both of which were absent in the 2 previous years. That aside it is a brilliant event.
