FAQs

Entry Information

Do you have a waiting list?

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).

I am unable to take part; can I transfer or sell my place to a friend?

Very sorry, but no. If you are unable to take part, please contact us via the contact us page on the website, or at info@osbeevents.com  to officially withdraw. We will then organise a refund for you, the amount of the refund depends on the date that you let us know about your withdrawal. Please note that no refunds can be given after 25 August 2019. Please check out our T&C’s for further information.

Can I change my relay team members?

Yes, you can, up until two weeks before the event, either via the online entry system or by contacting our office on 01522 699950.

 

 

Pre-Event Information

How will I receive my race pack?

Once you have entered you will receive confirmation from Active via email, please keep this safe as you will need the QR code on it at registration. We usually resend it the week before the event just in case you can’t find it. Nothing will be posted to you – everything you require will need to be collected at ‘race registration’. All the information you need will be available on our website.

We will keep in touch with you via email, with news and information about the event. If you do not receive any emails from us, first check your junk mail/spam folder and make sure to list info@osbevents.com as a safe sender. Check that you entered your email address correctly by logging into your account on the Active entry system. It’s important that you can receive our event emails as this is how we will let you know about course info and much more.

If you have un-subscribed from our emails then it is your choice not to receive our emails, so please ensure you visit our website regularly for event updates.

What do I need to register?

Please bring with you the QR code on your confirmation email. While not essential it does make the process much quicker. We will also need to see photo ID, ideally with your DOB on it (driving licence or passport). If this is a problem, please notify us in advance so that we can make things go smoother on the day. We will also either need to see your current BTF licence or take £5 to pay for your day licence (please bring cash). If you have not been sent a physical new membership card please download the current card from your profile on the BTF website and save it on your phone or print it out. If you cannot show us a current card we will have to charge you £5 for a day licence.

 

Can I register for my team?

One person can register a whole team, but you must have photo ID for every member and their BTF licence or £5 to pay for their day licence. You can bring photos of the ID or photocopies, if they cannot give you the original. If you do not have all the info for the whole team, we cannot register you, so please do not come to registration until you do.

 

Can I rack on the morning of the race?

No. All athletes must be registered and racked by 5pm the day before the race. You also need to attend a race briefing. If you have difficulties with this please contact the office in advance, do not just turn up on the morning, as you will be turned away.

Can I try out each section of the course before the day?

You can follow the bike course before the event, but the lake and sections of the run course are on private land so there is no advanced access to these areas. This really is a rare chance to experience this estate!

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 of the last wave.

The swim cut off is 1hour 10mins, with an additional 10mins to get through transition.

On the bike, the cut off is at 56miles which is 5hours 20mins from the start of the last wave.

Runners that are clearly not going to finish by 4pm 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 stop.

What gets you a penalty or disqualified?

You can only receive a penalty or disqualification from a BTF Official. It is very important to know and understand the rules of the sport.

·                     Do not ride dangerously or draft – cutting corners at junctions is a common DQ.

·                     Do not urinate in public, there are plenty of toilets at all feed stations on the course.

·                     You must wear clothing that covers your midriff and front zips should be done up at all times.

·                     Do not drop litter under any circumstances, use the bins provided. If you can carry it full, you can carry it empty.

There are motorbike referees on the course. Repeat drafters will get a DQ. Penalties will be displayed by the timing tent.

 

Spectators

Is there live tracking?

Yes, we will have an athlete tracker on the day accessible through the Restultsbase website or via the Outlaw Triathlons mobile application. The link to the tracker will be available from our website in the immediate lead up to the race – visit www.outlawtriathlon.com. Please note that the tracker will not give you an exact position, but an estimation based on an average of their speed having passed certain timing points.

 

Please note you will not be able to see the lake as it is on private land behind locked gates and the run also has large sections on private land.

What can my family do while I am racing?

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

Other

Are there separate Age Group waves & awards?

Athletes will be grouped together by age for the wave starts and prizes will be awarded from 18 – 24 onwards. There need to be at least 3 athletes in a category for prizes to be awarded.

Waves will likely start from 7.10am through to approx. 8.15am with 12 minutes between waves. Expect there to be approximately 250-300 competitors per wave. There is a separate elite wave, which the fastest competitors can elect to go into based on their previous results.

Note: your age group is based on your age on 31/12/2019

What nutrition do you have on the course?

High5 is our on-course nutrition partner. On the two 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 9 feed stations (3 passed 3 times each). 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.
