On another baking hot Outlaw day (Sunday, 27 July), local athletes triumphed in front of the biggest crowds ever seen at the NationalWater Sports Centre in Nottingham. Craig Twigg from Leicester and Jenny Bosman from Newark were the winners.

Completing a 2.4mile swim, 112mile bike ride and 26.2mile marathon run along with 1150 other starters, Craig Twigg was the first to cross the line in a stunning time of 9hours 03:32. A very strong swimmer, Twigg led the race almost from start to finish to cross the line two and a half minutes ahead of second placed Phil Mosely.

Twigg said: “There's no secret to my race plan, I'm a swim-biker. I'm lucky I got a big gap on the bike and I needed it by the looks of it.”

Craig TwiggHe added: “I'm just happy that I won in the end. It was awesome. It's been one of the best races I've done in the UK by far.”

Mosely made up more than fifteen minutes on Twigg during the run, and was very happy with his first attempt at long distance triathlon, commenting: “To be fair he was miles ahead, I couldn't believe how fast he was riding. On the run I couldn't believe I was ever going to catch him up. I'm really happy.”

Tom Vickery from Cambridge was was third in his best ever time over the long-distance, 9:13:25.

The women's race was close and exciting with Northampton's Stacey Dransfield leading out of the swim, into the bike and much of the run. However, there was a close race unfolding behind her.

Jenny Bosman wasn't in the top five after the swim or bike, but moved up very quickly on the run. Bosman, who lives locally in Newark, was in second place after 7.5miles and took the lead just over half way through the run.

At the finish she crossed the line in 10 hours 35:45 and said: “I took up triathlon last year and didn't even own a bike 18 months ago.”

Jenny BosmanCommenting on whether she thought she might have a chance of winning today, she said: “I hoped deep down, but it puts a bit of pressure on you. On the bike I thought I was lying in about sixth place at best and I thought, ‘it's not going to happen', but I started overtaking women and I thought I must be up there somewhere now'. It's amazing, it's such a friendly event, it's fantastic, the crew are brilliant.”

Hannah Peel was second (10:58:29) and Rekha Ravichandran was third, the same position that she achieved last year, but this year in a faster time of 11:02:04.

The winning relay team completed the course in an impressive 8hours 18:27. The trio represented the Karen Green Foundation in memory of a Nottingham woman who died of Leukaemia in 2012.
