Outlaw X 2021: Preview, Route and Who’s Running – Event News


The 2021 Outlaw Triathlon five-race series ends on Sunday, with the third edition of the Outlaw X.

The season finale could see the fall of records

The season finale of the Outlaw Triathlon Series takes place on Sunday at Thoresby Park in North Nottinghamshire. It has attracted high quality athletes from across Britain who want to end their season on a high and possibly break the course records.

Outlaw X launched in 2019 as a celebratory event to mark 10 years of the popular series, but it took on even more significance last year when it was one of the very few triathlon events to take place in Britain in 2020. The middle-distance event has attracted PTO investment and an all-star cast including Katrina Matthews, Nikki Bartlett, George Goodwin, Tom Davis and Tim Don.

In 2020, the swim course was shortened from 1900m to 750m due to cold water and freezing wind – so the times set last year were not recorded as course records. With a warm south wind forecast for Sunday, the records set in 2019 are up for grabs.

The results could bring up some new names to watch, including a former elite swimmer Fraser Minnican or young PTO athlete, Henry James. Andre Woodroffe can also feature, after finishing sixth overall in a strong field at the Outlaw full distance in July.

Emma Cowper seems an obvious choice for the podium in the women’s race after finishing second overall at Outlaw Half Bowood two weeks ago. Debbie Greig also has pedigree, having won Outlaw Half Holkham in 2017 as Rebecca Lineker could have an impact on its territory.
