Route Maps



The swim takes place in the Regatta Lake at the National Water Sports Centre, with all participants setting off as the sun rises. The calm water and simple route makes it easy to navigate and a very short transition means you’ll be out on your bike before you know it.



The partially closed road bike course is flat and fast, with only one notable climb at mile 50 to test the legs and get you out of the saddle! The route takes you through the beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside before returning to the National Water Sports Centre.


26.2 MILES

After climbing off your bike, you will head out onto the flat, multi-lap run course around the lake and on to the River Trent towpath. You’ll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment.

Event Day Information

Are there cut off times for each section?

Yes, to ensure the smooth & safe organisation of the event, we have some specific cut-off times. All of the cut-off times are based on the start time of the last wave.

Distance Running Clock Daytime Clock
Swim 2.4 miles 02:00 08:00

You need to be ahead of the cut-off at all times, you cannot rely on catching time up later in the course, if you are behind you will be asked to return to the venue.

Can I be penalised/disqualified?

You can only receive a penalty or disqualification from a BTF Official. There are motorbike referees on the course. Penalties will be displayed in the foyer of the main venue building. It is very important to know and understand the rules of the sport, eg:

  • Do not ride dangerously or draft
  • Do not urinate in public, there are plenty of toilets at all feed stations on the course
  • Wear clothing that covers your midriff, front zips should be done up at all times
  • Do not drop litter, use the bins provided

Is there any live tracking?

What nutrition do you have on the course?

High5 is our on-course nutrition partner. On the 8 bike feed stations there are 750ml bottles of water or High5 Energy Drink. There will also be High5 Energy Gels available on the bike course as well as bananas.

Along the run course feed stations there will be 20 feed stations. Each feed station will have High5 Energy Drink, High5 Zero, flat cola and water available. There will also be High5 Energy Gels Aqua, Jaffa cakes, ready salted crisps and bananas.

How many feed stations are there & where are they?

This year our Bike feed stations are positioned at mile 16-36-51-63-80-100.

There are plenty of feed stations along the run route too which are located approximately every 1.5 miles apart, with two of the gaps (from the embankment to the towpath) being 1.9 miles



What can my family do while I’m racing?

We produce a spectator guide for Outlaw Nottingham; this will be published in the immediate lead up to the event. There is a great atmosphere at the venue, and spectators will get to see you multiple times during the run as well as cheer the other competitors. They can also track you online to see exactly where you are. We will have a race expo, food outlets and the venue has various adventure activities – have a look here:
