2018 will be Woodhall Spa Triathlons 13th year and it will again be the final event in the Midlands Sprint Triathlon Series. This event features beautiful open countryside, quiet roads and run route on country lanes and if last year is anything to go by, lots of sunshine.

Jubilee Park offers the perfect start, finish, transition and swim, and for those who wish to camp a great place to stay overnight.

The sprint triathlon consists of a 400m swim in the fantastic 33m heated outdoor pool, a very safe bike course along beautiful quiet country lanes, finishing with a very simple and flat run.

It is no surprise that it is such a popular event, it really does tick a lot of boxes! It is great for those that have never completed a triathlon before. For those that race every weekend, then come along and test yourself here, see if you can make it under the magic hour!

Make it a weekend away - there is something for everyone to do - kids, parents, grandparents and even the dog.

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.

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!
