OK, the Outlaw is done, and yes, it did start pissing down for the last 90mins of the bike (Met Office got it spot on). Splits below. Nutrition worked fine. Took too long in transitions (might have gone sub-11 if I’d done my 2011 transitions!), but wanted to be comfortable on bike and run.

Outlaw Splits

Happy with results – was aiming for A) sub-11 hours, B) beat 11:18 (Challenge Roth 2010 time) or C) beat previous Outlaw time (11:47, 2011) – smashed C and managed B. Next time… A.

Really felt for the slower competitors (hark at me!) as they were in the rain for lots of their bike splits and all of the run, with the rain increasing as the afternoon turned into evening and beyond. This meant the tow-path along the Trent became one big puddle in places – not fun for tired body and legs! Kudos to those guys…
