Race Report 23rd July

with No Comments

Outlaw Triathlon Nottingham – Sunday 23rd July – 2.4 mile Swim, 112 mile Cycle and 26.2 mile Run.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake. A single out and back course makes the swim easy to navigate. With transition right next to the swim exit you’ll have every opportunity to set a super-quick time and even faster escape onto your bike. The roads around Nottingham offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course is fast, but don’t underestimate it – it’s not totally flat and you’ll need to use your whit and experience to get around it with enough left in the legs for the run, and be prepared for it to be very tough if it’s a windy day! On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path. You’ll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment. .

There are 6,000 feet of challenging climbs, but athletes will enjoy beautiful panoramic views. The 42,195 km run will include a flat and fast four-loop course along the Promenade des Anglais.
