Come a take part in our first triathlon of the 2018 season set in The jewel in Nottinghamshires crown - Southwell.

The Southwell Triathlon is back again for another year and will again be the first event of our Midlands Series.

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.

The 2018 Nottingham Sprint Triathlon has been selected to be the 2018 ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon qualifying event.

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.

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.

The debut Outlaw Half Holkham event in 2016 received 99.5% positive feedback and was an instant hit at the beautiful Holkham Estate. 2017 was bigger and better! The event takes place over a stunning course covering a 1.2 mile lake swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run, which can be completed as an individual or relay team of three competitors.

The Holkham Estate and its magnificent eighteenth century hall provide a stunning backdrop to the swim, both transitions and the run. The bike course is a single loop taking in the coastal road, quiet country roads and some faster roads. The run does feature some climbs across three loops around the Estate.

There is on-site camping organised specifically for competitors and their family and friends, camping is only permitted in Holkham twice a year, so this is a fantastic opportunity. There are various types of accommodation in the area, but this is a popular holiday destination, so please book early!

This will be a very high quality racing experience, and an escape from everyday life. Holkham is one of Britain's tourist gems, and we're delighted to be able to return for a third year.

The ninth Outlaw Triathlon is all set for summer 2018. 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.
