Are there route maps available and can I train on the course at the Outlaw Sprint - Thoresby Park 2023?
Full course maps will only be made available closer to the event, this is because the event takes place on private land and OSB Events ask you to respect the owners privacy. A modified bike route map will be available which allows you to ride the road route from the normal Thoresby Park visitor car park. Please do not attempt to access the lake or sections of the bike or run route on the estate which are normally closed to public access. When training on the course, please be cautious and mindful that on race day we have specific traffic management in place to make it safer for you. It is possible that the published routes may be subject to change, however the organisers are confident that these are the routes that will be used.

How hilly is the bike course and what type of bike would you recommend for the Outlaw Sprint - Thoresby Park 2023?
The course is fairly flat with rolling sections and no steep hills of note. A road or TT bike is suitable.
ChevronLeft
Are there cut-off times for each section of the Outlaw Sprint - Thoresby Park 2023?
Yes, to ensure the smooth & safe organisation of the event, OSB Events have some specific cut-off times. All of the cut-off times are based on your start time. You need to be ahead of the cut off at all times, you will not be able to rely on catching time up later in the course. If you are behind you will be asked to leave the race. Swim Cut Off - 30 minutes after start Bike Finish Cut-Off – 2 hours after start Run Finish – 3 hours after start.

Do people miss the cut off times, and if so, what happens to them?
Unfortunately some people do miss the cut offs and we have to remove them from the race before they finish. You must be ahead of the cut offs at every stage of the race - if you miss one, you will not be allowed to continue on the assumption that you can make up time later in the course. If you miss a cut off you will not be allowed to continue and you will either need to make your own way back to transition or we will transport you back to the venue if required.
ChevronLeft
Are there changing and transition tents?
No, not for this race. Your race equipment must be stored by your bike. Additional kit will either be held in a bag storage area or next to your bike depending on the latest race regulations or you can leave it with your supporters. Please keep all bags a reasonable size i.e. airline cabin baggage size
ChevronLeft
What are the common mistakes made by competitors?
Failing to read the Race Information is the biggest issue we come across. Many athletes could reduce their stress and errors by taking the time to read the Race Information fully. Even if you have done the race before, there may be changes to how it is being run this year. Please read your Race Information carefully when you get it so you know how everything will work.
ChevronLeft
What nutrition do you have on the course?
High 5 is the on-course nutrition partner. The event will have energy drink, gels and water available on the run course.
ChevronLeft
Where should I start on the swim?
"You will be allocated a swim start time based on the information you provide - the start will be a time trial format where you start in pairs or smaller wave groups, this will be confirmed in your race information. Please ensure that you arrive to the swim start at your allocated time. You do not have to dive in races where a diving start is allowed - you will be able to jump or slide into the water if you prefer. If you are a nervous swimmer or find that you are being overtaken, you may find it better to position yourself to the side of the main racing line."
ChevronLeft
How do competitors get a penalty or DQ in the race?
"You can only receive a penalty or disqualification from a BTF Official. To avoid being disqualified or penalised, ensure you are familiar with the BTF rules and follow them at all times e.g. · Do not cross the centre line of the road (ride on the correct side at all times), especially when cornering. · Do not urinate in public, there are plenty of toilets at all feed stations on the course and in transition. · Don't ride dangerously, please ensure that you adhere to the Highway Code - Don't behave in a rude or aggressive manner · Don't draft - ensure you keep your distance from other riders. Once you pass someone it is their responsibility to drop back. There are motorbike referees on the course. · Do not drop litter!"
