The Outlaw Half Holkham Weekend is about as close to a triathlon festival as we think you can get. Set in the vast, stunning grounds of the historic Holkham Estate, there is onsite camping, a range of local food outlets, events for all the family and the weather rarely disappoints!
Holkham Hall provides an inspiring backdrop to the swim, both transitions and the run course, while the single loop bike course takes participants on an unforgettable journey through some of the most beautiful countryside and coastal roads Norfolk has to offer.
The bike course as a few short climbs, including out of the first transition, but it’s mostly flat with plenty of opportunity to pick up speed! The run course is challenging for heavy legs, but the beauty of the landscape and the crowd support will carry you to the Outlaw Half finishing line in front of the 18th century Hall.
This is truly a weekend to remember for participants and spectators. It’s no surprise Outlaw Half Holkham has won awards and regularly features in listings of the UK’s best triathlons.
