News in from Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham and the second running of The Outlaw iron-distance.

Close racing at the front of proceedings with a battle royal between the two race favourites Joel Jameson and Hywel Davies. They were in close order for much of the race, both performing exceptionally and smashing the nine hour mark, Joel finally prevailing in a time of 8:47:47, less than five minutes ahead of the multi-talented Davies who can win pretty much any race, over any distance - and can even bend metal bars!

Joel said: “I watched the Outlaw last year and seeing what a great course it was, I decided to take part this year.

“I've not been training as much as I'd have liked because I got married last month and spent two weeks on honeymoon. The lack of training made it really painful at times and I had to really dig deep to pull a win out of the bag. Ultimately, I was happy with the win, but as I regularly compete in ironman distance races, my time could have been better.”

The ladies race was won by an athlete, like Joanna Swallow last year, in her first ever attempt at the distance.

Catherine Faux, aged 23, who is originally from Stamford but currently studying medicine at Sheffield University was the first female to cross the finishing line today. She said: “I'm really happy to have won, I wasn't expecting it, but I've been trying to train as much as possible around university so all the effort has paid off. I've never done an ironman distance before and I was using a borrowed bike, so it feels amazing to finish in first place.

“There were so many supporters out on the route today and the other competitors were all really supportive which made such a distance when the going got tough. I'm already thinking about next year, I'm definitely planning to take part again.”

First athletes across the line, like 2010, was actually a relay team comprising Catherine Jameson, Tom Lowe and Toby Jameson - making it a full house for Team GI Tri Bridgtown and the Jameson family.

Toby Jameson who lives in Oxford, was part of the GI Tri Bridgetown team that won the relay today in 8 hours, 1 minute and 10 seconds. He took on the run, alongside team mates Catherine Jameson who completed the swim and Tom Lowe who did the bike section.

Toby, 30, said: “I'm really pleased to be a part of the winning team today. The course was predominantly flat which really helped to maintain a good pace on the run. Collectively, the team today were really strong and getting ahead on the bike and run sections really helped me to maintain the lead on the run around the course.

“It's the first time I've taken part in the Outlaw and it's been exceptionally well organised. It rivals other big events in the country and I would definitely take part again”.
