The swim takes place in the lake on Holkham Estate against the backdrop of the impressive Holkham Hall. A single out and back course makes it easy to navigate and there is just a short run to transition.
Once out of the water, the undulating, single-loop bike course will take you on an unforgettable journey through some of the most beautiful countryside and coastal roads North Norfolk has to offer.
Once the race is full, we do not have a waiting list and entries will not reopen once they are sold out. The only way to get into the Outlaw Half Nottingham once it is sold out is via our official charity Cancer Research UK (CR-UK).
