The original Outlaw! Outlaw Nottingham Weekend hosts our award-winning long-distance event, Outlaw Nottingham, affectionately known as "the Full.” The 2024 edition boasts new events, all based around the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham. There are events for everyone as well as our lively event village overlooking the famous orange carpet, so bring your family and friends to enjoy the Outlaw experience.
Saturday will host the NEW Outlaw Nottingham Aquathlon and the Future Outlaw running event for younger family members.
Sunday will see Outlaw Nottingham take place alongside the NEW Aquabike event. Outlaw Nottingham comprises of a 2.4mile swim, 112mile bike ride and a marathon run. The course is famously fast and flat, making it ideal for those tackling this distance for the first time or those looking for PB. A relay option is available for the triathlon if you want to take part with family or friends. The long distance Aquabike event is perfect for those who want to go long without the run discipline.
Outlaw Nottingham Triathlon
2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run
The swim takes place in the Regatta lake at the National Water Sports Centre with the incredible spectacle that is a mass start. The swim is easy to navigate with an out and back course which exits close to transition. The 112-mile bike course takes you along a relatively flat route out into the Nottinghamshire countryside, taking in a southern loop, northern loop (where there is one short but significant climb at Oxton Bank), then back round the southern loop again before returning via Holme Pierrepont Hall for the final leg of the race. The 26.2 mile run is largely flat, taking in the Regatta Lake, White Water Park and along the River Trent Path. You'll pass the finish line a couple of times before you can finally enjoy the roar of the crowd as you head onto the orange carpet. Up to 2 family members or friends can join you to celebrate your finish. This event can be done as an individual or join in with friends and complete it as a 2 or 3 person Relay

Outlaw Half Nottingham Aquabike
2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike
This event follows the same swim and bike route as the Outlaw Nottingham 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 swim takes place in the Regatta Lake at the National Water Sports Centre with the incredible spectacle that is a mass start. The swim is easy to navigate with an out and back course which exits close to transition. The 112-mile bike course takes you along a relatively flat route out into the Nottinghamshire countryside, taking in a southern loop, northern loop (where there is one short but significant climb at Oxton Bank), then back round the southern loop again before returning via Holme Pierrepoint Hall and completing your event. Aquabike is ideal for those who want to challenge themselves and enjoy the Outlaw experience, but either don't want to or find themselves unable to run.
