From the Outlaw Half info pack:

"There will be one transition area positioned at the bottom end of the lake in front and to the side of the boat stores. Please ensure that you only bring kit which is absolutely necessary into the transition area. This will be your transition for both the Swim-Bike and Bike-Run. There will be No change tent available and nudity is not permitted so please consider this in your race preparations."

So no change tent, no bags and no nekkedness (boooo!!) i.e. just like a normal triathlon.

From the transition plan on the site, it looks like they've taken out the Outlaw Full Change tent for another transition area with racking.

The pic below is the Outlaw transition area from 2010.  This was about 800 bikes and they're expecting 1300 this weekend (although in wave starts). The tent at the far end won't be there and a further transition area will be in it's place.

More pics from Outlaw 2010 and 2011 in my gallery at www.sub17.net

And this is what you're looking for...the finish that is, not the Medical Tent...

Steve Ho, thanks for the water temp info, that is making me feel better as it was around the same temp last year for the full.

Thanks TimmyG, I had not read the pack properly and totally missed the fact there would be no change tent. Plans changed, no problem.

With the no nippels rule, is that all teh way through or only after T1 - don't loads of people do sprint tri's in just trunks and the then put tops on afterwards?

29/05/2013 at 06:37

Just trying to work out Saturdays training to allow myself a free day to come and support

maybe a Tri suit but 56 miles is a long way with no padding

How about you paint a trisuit on yourself - Halfords should have some spray paint...what could go wrong??

Trying to work out if I can do this in a one piece tri suit and be capable of removing it WHEN I need to loo!! the lack of padding for the bike puts me off.

I do not want to buy more sodding kit.

 

*EDIT* panic over, found some lycra shorts to wear in the swim with flat seams that can go under the bike and run shorts....*flounces off for a lie down*

Cheers Mrs SA, are you coming over to the Half? If not I will make a trip over to colect them. I will mail Q my mobile number if you are coming over

Anyway, nudity and no nipples, I think this just about covers it....

Yep, thinking about coming over to support

29/05/2013 at 12:07

If Chris is going to wear that mankini, he'll definitely need some extra support...
