Following months, if not years, of speculation, the popular Outlaw Triathlon Series has confirmed a new middle-distance event in the South West of England. Outlaw Half Bowood will take place on Sunday 7 June at Bowood Estate in Wiltshire.

Bowood is located off the M4 motorway close to Chippenham, midway between Bath and Swindon. After years of searching for a suitable new venue for Outlaw, Bowood offers good accessibility, a stunning backdrop and a course that is in keeping with rest of the Outlaw Series.

The 1.2mile swim will take place in the large natural lake on site and features a single lap 56mile bike course followed by a three-lap 13.1mile run within the grounds of the Estate, which boasts 100 acres of parkland beautifully landscaped by Capability Brown. The start, finish, transitions and event village will all be situated against the backdrop of the Georgian Bowood House.

Event Director, Iain Hamilton said: “We’ve been hinting at a ‘southern’ Outlaw event for several years and are really pleased to have been given the opportunity to use Bowood Estate.

“The venue is stunning, and we’re able to retain the ethos of the other events in the Series in terms of having a single lap swim, single lap bike course and multi lap run, as well as keeping the start, finish and transitions all very close together.”
