  • Did the Middle in 2018

    I think the organisers should've said the swim MAY be non wetsuit. I brought mine with me just in case but lots didn't. There wasn't much support from Marshalls on the bike route, one on a tight corner sat in his car the whole time literally paying no attention to the race. Another I told a competitor needed assistance, the Marshall didn't seem to know what to do. To top it all off the run was over a mile short? Couldn't we have added an extra lap?
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Very late start meant family hanging around longer also messed with pre race nutrition. Transition not very organized with regards to bike racking. Very poor.
  • Did the Olympic in 2018

    The note about it being a non wet suit swim was confusing and if you had said it 'may' be a non wet suit swim then all those who didn't bring theirs may have done, I did have mine.

Nottingham Sprint Triathlon

The National Water Sports Centre is the perfect venue for testing yourself on a perfectly flat course where the tempo is high and the competition is fierce (and friendly!)

Whether youre an experienced athlete looking for a fast time over the sprint distance, or youre a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water triathlon, then the Nottingham Triathlon is the perfect event.

The arena type venue with an overlooking grandstand, blaring PA, electric atmosphere and big crowds will push you beyond what you think you're capable of. Whether it is your first triathlon or you are trying to qualify for the national Age-Group squad, we guarantee you will enjoy the fully closed road-circuit style race and the extra support that brings with it.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake, with a simple out and back course, followed by four laps of the perimeter lake on the bike. Dont forget the wind, which can push you back one way, but also propel you at high speeds in the opposite direction. The run covers on and off road sections before taking you past the cheering grandstand to the finishing line.

This fantastic venue offers camping and ample car-parking, making it the perfect event to bring the family to, as they'll get to see you swim, bike and run as well as have the opportunity to enjoy the park environment and various activities on site. There are two main cafes on site, changing and shower facilities and very easy access to Nottingham city centre just two miles down the road.

  • Did the event in 2018

    loved the race from the very beginning. quite fast
  • Did the event in 2018

    my second time at Nottingham sprint and this year it was an ETU qualifier, so Everyman and his disc wheel and pointy helmet was here.The water was lovely and warm, perfect conditions. The organisers do a fantastic job and the set up Is fabulous. The bike course is 4 laps of the 2k lake, so just under 20k. Closed roads, flat and straight...don’t forget to save something in the tank for the 1 loop 5k run of the lake before hitting the red carpet finish.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I first raced this event in 2015 as a qualifier and enjoyed the event. The field was much smaller with it not being a qualifier this year, shame as its a great event and run well (like all OSB events).  OSB events always run smoothly and are well organised which is exactly what you want on race day. Swim was chilly (about 14 degrees), one large loop and nice wave sizes so there wasnt as much violence in the swim as most open water swim starts. The bike was 4 laps round the lake, surface isnt great but its still a nice fast flat circuit. The run is a flat and fairly fast but draining when you feel like your not getting closer to the finish as you can see it for almost all the 5km run as its one lap round the lake. Nice atmosphere and the event was run smoothly start to finish despite the awful weather. Also a great event for spectators as you get to see all the swim, 4 times on the bike and can see on the run so get to watch most the race. Would recommend to all ability athletes.

Accenture World Triathlon Nottingham

In 2018, a packed crowd witnessed Team USA take the gold ahead of Great Britain at the inaugural Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham. 19 international quartets had decended on the city, all racing in search of Olympic qualification points as part of the World Triathlon Mixed Relay series, just two days before they headed north to take on the British leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Leeds.

International quartets will once again return to the banks of the River Trent on Saturday 15 June 2019, as the battle continues for qualification points to secure a place on the start line as Triathlon Mixed Relay makes its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games. But the event is not all about the elite action with over 200 Age-Group and GO TRI first time triathletes having celebrated their blue carpet moment last year, the 2019 event welcomes the British Age-Group Sprint Distance Championships to the schedule creating opportunities at all levels of the sport to take part in the action across a range of event distances.

Southwell Sprint Triathlon

This sprint triathlon takes place in the historic market town of Southwell and consists of a 400m swim which will take place in the Southwell Leisure Centres 25m pool followed by a 17.6km cycle finishing with a two lap 5km run.

This is one of the best sprint triathlons to take on for your first dabble with the sport. This event has always had a high percentage of first-timers and almost a third of our atheletes are novices.

The Southwell Triathlon route does feature a few inclines, we wouldnt say these were mountains but the first part of the run has earnt itself the name The Southwell Slope! Regardless of these inclines, Southwell is a great event for athletes of all abilities who would like to challenge themselves.

  • Did the event in 2018

    My first event since being diagnosed with hip osteoarthritis & having to stop running. Kindly asked by a mate if I could do the bike leg of the relay for his lad who was just under the age limit for the ride & very pleased to oblige. As my young team mate's swim & run times were fantastic & my ride time was reasonable we came first! There were only 7 relay teams of varying abilities but very chuffed to have won something for the first & likely only time!Despite much colder & breezier than ideal most participants seemed in good spirits. The organisation of a large pool sprint event (up to 500 entrants) with all the staggered starts seemed good given the complexity & comings/goings of competitors.I'm always impressed by OSB events & today was no different. As my first time 'relay' I sought the guidance of a friendly marshal in transition to reinforce the handover process/rules & was reassured. I did my bit on a mostly flat, well signed & marshalled 14 mile cycle route, pleased with my time (as only been up to 10 miles a couple of times in preparation) but wondered afterwards if I could have pushed a little harder. I wasn't looking forward to a stretch near the end on a busy bypass but hadn't realised that a full lane was coned off for the event which was brilliant.  The run was along a riverside tow path, mate's who did the race all ran good times & my teammate was fast along it, so I didn't hear any complaints! Parking a fair way (15-20 minute walk) away from the location wasn't ideal, especially as wet/muddy/cold, but had it been a lovely spring day I suspect I would not have minded at all.Overall another really good @OSBevents race.
  • Did the event in 2017

    Really great local event. Some cheeky hills on both the bike and run.
  • Did the event in 2016

    Great hassle free registration.Very busy in the pool.The cycle was long and windy, with a cracking hill. A long flat 5k to finish with.only fly in the ointment was people's lack of awareness to what someone tapping your toes meant in the pool and the idiot on the TT bike who thought undertaking was acceptable. Will be interesting to see if he is penalised as he did it in front of a motorcycle Marshallhttps://wordpress.com/read/feeds/46303095/posts/1013284617

Triathlon Relays Championship

Do you want to take on a fun challenge that is like no other triathlon event you have ever entered? All you will need is three friends (they dont actually have to be your friends it just helps!) your swimming kit, a bike and your trainers!!

This event has been given the nickname of Organised Chaos for all the right reasons! It attracts over 1600 athletes from over 100 different clubs and is full of racing and laughing!

The format is going to be the same as it was in 2017, with all teams racing on Saturday in either the morning or the afternoon sessions depending on the make up of their team.

Each member of the team individually swims 500metres, before tagging their team mate, and so on, and so on, until all four people have completed the swim. Moving onto the 15km bike, each athlete individually completes the 15km bike, until the last team member then tags the first team member to start the 5km run section, with the final athlete finishing in front on the grandstand under the Triathlon England gantry!

  • Did the event in 2018

    From arrival at the site, I could see this was a big, well supported and exciting race. The buzz was incredible. Teams from all over the uk were busying about, racing, resting or getting ready to race.Registration was easy, the process staffed by helpful osb ladies! Team captains then have to dish out swim caps and bibs corresponding to the order you are going in. Once done, off to the start,and let the chaos commence!! The whole day is about triathlon and fun, and the 1 lap swim, 3 lap flat bike course and 1 lap run provided that. The transitions were manic, trying to spot your team mates, but so well organised they flowed. Overall, so well organised by osb events, it was a great event for triathletes to come together and compete for fun. We at the prison service triathlon club will be back next year.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This was my 3rd year in a row and so t be the last. As usual OSB organise an excellent race. The logistics can be difficult to understand if you are new to this format but everyone is on hand to help. The lake wasn’t as bad as previous years and there is now a “dive” to get in if you want. Simple course around the lake and can’t wait for next years race.

  • Did the event in 2016

    A good local triathlon that could be made much more of an event.  Everything ran smoothly with good marshalling and easy navigation. Better advertising and a bit more razzmatazz would make this an even better tri.
  • Did the event in 2016

    This is my second Erewash tri and the improvements made from last year are better marshalling and better organised than last year. For whatever the reason just seemed to run smoother. Happy with the marshalls around the road route although I will say it is open road for the most part. Run coarse nice and flat and I found it more helpful in the pool that each lane had a Marshall that counted the lengths done.Will be back next year

  • Did the Olympic in 2011

    Fantastic event, big field and crowd turn out for a qualifying event. The course is a single swim and bike lap, two-lap run along the dam. Rutland Water is a great place to swim, the Rutland Ripple climbs on the bike will challenge you. Excellent marshalling.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is a local race for me but not competed for a few year.The numbers seem to have dropped over the last few years but still a very well organised event from a very experiance team at Pacesetter Events.Nice calm swim in the creak just off the main body of water, one simple loop and easy to navigate.Bike is undulateing and with 3 shortish climbs to test you and is slightly long for an olympic at 26miles.Run is an out and back cousre, nice and flat but can be windy, this year the weather was perfect.
  • Did the event in 2018

    When I first got into Triathlon in 2012. The Dambuster triathlon was  race i hear talked about a lot. It was difficult to get into and was one that always had a high quality field. Well I finally got round to entering and I was'nt dissapointed. I know the area and the route well ... but you never get bored of the natural beauty of the location. Set at Rutland water a large inland reservoir the scenery is stunning. The swim is in good quality water in a area which hides the swimmers from any real waves whipped up by the wind. The layout of the transition is close with no major hike from water to T1. The bike course loops around the reservoir and provides a real challenge with some rolling hills with some very fast sections mixed in. The run is fairly flat and again hugs the reservoir providing stunning scenery to finish the race. Overall thus is a great race well organised and it's surprising it is no longert as popular as it once was. It was still a good quality field to compete against and  fair course to race on.

The Outlaw Half Nottingham is one of Britains most popular events, often selling out in a matter of minutes. The Middle Distance event covers a 1.2 mile open water swim, 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run, which must be completed in less than nine hours.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake in wave starts. A single out and back course makes it easy to navigate and then with a quick escape via a very short transition, you are straight out on your bike. The roads around Nottinghamshire offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course will be fast, but don't underestimate it - especially if it's a windy day!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre, the flat multi-lap course around the lake and river path offers a feed station every mile or so and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.

The start, the swim, much of the run and the finish are all conveniently located together, making excellent spectator and family viewing at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.

There is on-site camping, family friendly activities as well as excellent city centre hotels just two to three miles down the road. There are thousands of car parking spaces available; making this is the perfect athlete and spectator experience.

Outlaw Triathlon

One of Nottingham's key sporting events, the Outlaw has become (almost) even more legendary than Robin Hood, the Major Oak and Brian Clough!

Those who have conquered the Outlaw Triathlon are remembered in local folklore for having outwitted the Sheriff to complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run. As long as you can cover the distance in 17 hours or less, you will become an Outlaw. Six men have completed it every year since the Outlaw was launched in 2010; can they come back and finish it for a ninth time this year? And will you be joining them as a competitor or spectator?

The event begins with a mass swim start in the Regatta Lake at Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre. Its an out and back swim course which is easy to navigate. With transition right next to the swim exit you'll have every opportunity to set a super-quick time and even faster escape onto your bike.

The roads around Nottinghamshire are ideal for fast riding (time trial bike friendly) and there is only the odd short climb to challenge you, but dont underestimate the wind!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the flat run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path. You'll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment.

About the event
From the organiser

One of Nottingham's key sporting events, the Outlaw has become (almost) even more legendary than Robin Hood, the Major Oak and Brian Clough!

Those who have conquered the Outlaw Triathlon are remembered in local folklore for having outwitted the Sheriff to complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run. As long as you can cover the distance in 17 hours or less, you will become an Outlaw. Six men have completed it every year since the Outlaw was launched in 2010; can they come back and finish it for a ninth time this year? And will you be joining them as a competitor or spectator?

The event begins with a mass swim start in the Regatta Lake at Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre. Its an out and back swim course which is easy to navigate. With transition right next to the swim exit you'll have every opportunity to set a super-quick time and even faster escape onto your bike.

The roads around Nottinghamshire are ideal for fast riding (time trial bike friendly) and there is only the odd short climb to challenge you, but dont underestimate the wind!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the flat run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path. You'll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment. The multi-lap course, which has been measured by UK Athletics, offers a feed station every mile or so, and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.

On arrival at the finish you will receive a hero's welcome and be crowned a modern day Outlaw. Then you can enjoy the festival atmosphere with thousands of spectators cheering the athletes home until the sun finally sets on a spectacular day of racing.

Outlaw has been recognised as 220 Triathlon Magazine's Event of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 & 2017 and British Triathlon's Event of the Year in 2011.

  • Did the event in 2018

    great event well organised. Unlike other full distance races these guys were able to adapt the course quickly with changing conditions & keep the full distance
  • Did the event in 2018

    This was my first full distance race. I was previously familiar with OSB Events from the Half Outlaw at Holkham. I don't have anything negative to say about planning, registration or execution of the race and - if I ever race this distance again - I would definitely sign up for the Outlaw again.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Completed my first outlaw this year having finished the half in 2017. It is so well organised, instructions and briefing were done really well and the  organisers handled a late change to the swim (due to weather) very smoothly. You can also camp nearby.The most memorable highlights were the support crews around the course who were just amazing. And of course the ability to cross the finish line with a loved one if you want to!

    Superbly organised event from booking from online booking(very late decision from me)to the finish.Pre race information is very thorough and points you in the direction of where to park and then an easy walk to the registration tent(registration was painless).Swim in the leisure centre pool again directions from the organisers are excellent and then a run to transition.Bike course is easy to navigate with left turns or roundabouts and well marked and marshalled(all very encouraging)Run is an out and back with a small rise to test the legs as you come out of transition, again well signed,marshalled(Derby tri club)and supported,with a small downhill to finish.both years there have been a wide variety of competitors and I'd recommend for anyone looking to complete a first triathlon.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I have done this race on two previous occasions but having now done a few more middle distance races over the years I feel my review may be a bit more balanced.

    Registration & the option to leave your bike overnight is straight forward. The Transition area is large however due to the winds there was lots of debris on the ground which isn't ideal.

    Swim is ok but i think due to the unusually hot summer there was loads of weeds and not very nice things at the start & finish of the swim. As its a running start the rocks underfoot were not good and certainly caused a few issues. Due to the wave system start if you were in the later waves you ended up swimming over/around the slower swimmers who started earlier. Not great for those weaker swimmers.

    Bike course has started to get busier since the first time I did it. Its well sign posted and marshalls on the choke\issue points but so many more cars on the course. Started to fee a bit unsafe at times. There is 1 aid station at the lap point offering everything you need. On the second lap everyone is pretty much out on the course making it busy with traffic & bikes.

    Run course was very well manned and the enthusiasm was great to see. Its a runners friendly course though not fully flat & if the wind is blowing it can be interesting

    Great run finish line and you get a medal, T-shirt & Gilet so plenty bang for your buck.

    Its a great race to step up & try Middle distance racing but for me that bike course is just getting to busy with cars these days. It being a Saturday race may not help

  • Did the event in 2018

    A fast half ironman on an undulating bike course and flat run. Nice venue, good organisation and friendly marshals. No sense of local support but then the route doesn't really go through anywhere where people would stand out and cheer! A bit of a disappointing finish line/area.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Absolutely fantastic event from start to finish - friendly, accommodating and enjoyable. Rutland is a stunning venue, and my family and I were able to camp right by the water, which also meant a later wake-up call and a short walk to the start line for the 0600 brief.
    Registration was quick and simple and the stash provided was amazing - good medal, nice cotton t-shirt and an embroidered Vitruvian gilet, all included in the entry price, along with plenty of nutritious (and not so nutritious... Space Invaders!) snacks.
    Apart from the mass beach start over stones, the swim was really enjoyable, the water was clear beyond the first metre or two of pond weed and a comfortable temperature. A short run to transition, and then out onto a wonderful, well-marshalled, 2-lap bike course with some stunning views (although measuring short at 50.5 miles!) The run course was again two laps and really well supported along the route... with members of my family popping up in their Team t-shirts at every turn!
    Overall, I loved it and would recommend this event to anyone.
