Outlaw Series Update 11.05.20 – Outlaw Triathlon Cancellation

We are sorry to confirm that Outlaw Nottingham is now cancelled due to coronavirus. The event was due to take place on Sunday 26 July 2020.


Outlaw Nottingham is always the highlight of our event calendar, so we are disappointed to cancel it, but we know there’s a bigger picture this year. We hope you will join us on 25 July 2021.


You now have two choices on what to do next; defer to Outlaw Nottingham 2021 or obtain a partial refund. Please see full details below. Deferral is available to all, regardless whether you’ve previously deferred or when you entered this year’s event.



To defer to the 2021 event, you don’t need to take any action until later in the year when we issue 2021 entry links via Active. Anyone who does not contact us requesting a partial refund will automatically be deferred.


Anyone with outstanding payments from Outlaw 2020 entry plans will be asked to make the relevant payment when claiming their deferred entry place into the 2021 event – we anticipate this will be sometime in September.


We will send further details once the 2021 system is ready to accept entries. There will be no charge to claim your 2021 place, but entry links must be used within a specific timeframe.



Partial Refund

To request a partial refund, in line with the details in the table below, please email info@osbevents.com with the subject header Outlaw Nottingham Refund prior to 23:59 on 24 May 2020. Refunds will be processed manually to the card that was used to pay for your entry, and we will aim to complete them by 31 May 2020. If your refund is not showing on your card statement by 10 June, please contact us.

Charity Entries and Donations

If you entered via one of our official charity partners, CRUK or ARUK, you will be offered the opportunity to defer your entry.  Should you wish to claim a refund, please get in touch with the charity directly.  The decision on whether to refund will be at the discretion of the charity.



A number of you were kind enough to make a donation to one of our official charities. Unless you notify us by email (info@osbevents.com) before 23:59 on 24 May 2020, this money will be sent to the charities as planned.

These events, which were due to take place on Saturday 25 July 2020, are also sadly cancelled. Entrants are being emailed directly with further information in the next two weeks.
