Route Maps

SWIM COURSE

1.2 MILES


 

 

The single loop swim takes place in the clear, unspoilt Thorseby Lake within the grounds of Thoresby Park. With a deep water start and a few turns to navigate over the course of the 1.2 mile swim, it provides the perfect start to Outlaw X.

BIKE COURSE

56 MILES



The single loop bike course will take athletes on a beautiful journey through the north Nottinghamshire countryside, including Walesby Forest and Clumber Park. There is c. 2,000 ft of climbing, with the highest point on the course coming at 51 miles.

RUN COURSE

13.1 MILES



The run course takes you on a scenic tour of picturesque Thoresby Park, making use of the internal roads and hard-packed farm tracks within the estate. The route has gentle inclines and descents, nothing too challenging! New for 2020, we have added a section through the Ancient Wood, so keep your eyes up and marvel in the ancient oaks as you run past.

Event Day Information

Are there cut-off times for each section?

Yes, to ensure the smooth & safe organisation of the event, you should be capable of achieving the following cut-off times:

Swim 1hr10, but you have an extra ten minutes to get out of transition onto the bike course

Bike 5 hours 20 minutes after your wave start

Run 9 hours 00 minutes after your wave start

Runners that are clearly not going to finish in time will be asked to stop, although we will do our best to help you finish in time.

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 at Race HQ. 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.

Do not drop litter, use the bins provided.

Can I carry a mobile phone on the course?

You can carry mobile phone, but it must not be used in any distractive manner during the race.

Is there any live tracking?

Yes, they are, however, there will be a number of measures in place for their and our safety. These will include restricting the swim start area to athletes only.
