SWIM COURSE

1.2 MILES


The single loop swim takes place in waved starting groups in the clear, unspoilt private 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. It’s fair to describe the course as ‘rolling’, with some climbs and plenty of long, fast sections.

RUN COURSE

13.1 MILES


The run course covers three loops around pathways and some off-road surfaces (suitable for standard running shoes). It undulates in a few places, just enough to offer stunning vistas of Thoresby Hall, but not enough to completely take your breath away. The course passes into some private woodland where access is reserved only for race day.
