The finale of the Outlaw season, Outlaw Half Thoresby Weekend (formerly Outlaw X) has something for everyone with Sprint, Middle Distance and Kids events. It’s all set against the back drop of the north Nottinghamshire countryside and the magical grounds of Thoresby Park. Onsite camping is available, so it’s a great way to close the summer season with friends and family.
Saturday will host the Outlaw Sprint Thoresby, a short course event which begins in the private lake and passes through Clumber Park before returning to Thoresby and finishing in front of the Hall. Younger athletes can take part in the Future Outlaw running events.
On Sunday, we have Outlaw Half Thoresby, a middle-distance triathlon that is ideal for both novice and experienced triathletes. 2024 also introduces a NEW Aquabike event that will take place along with Outlaw Half Thoresby. This is a fantastic addition to the Outlaw series for those who prefer a run-free format. Both our triathlons offer a 2 or 3 person relay option, so you can take part with friends or family, each person doing a different leg and coming together to cross the finishing line.

This event follows the same swim and bike route as the Outlaw Half Thoresby triathlon. However, you will head to the finish after your bike leg. This will be a different finish to the main grandstand finish due to the race route logistics.

The course is road or TT bike friendly, with plenty of fast sections.
