Our write up of Outlaw Triathlon

Hawkins said: “I have very fond memories from winning the first Outlaw. It was that performance in 2010 that made me realise that I was good enough to compete with some of the very best in the sport.

“If could win them both it would be incredible. Obviously it would be tough and I expect to have to fight for it, but after two years of frustration with injury I finally feel fully recovered and better motivated then ever before.”

He added: “The event has a great vibe and has an amazing attention to detail. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. “

The Outlaw Half takes place on 31 May in Nottingham and the Outlaw is on 26 July. Both events are sold out, including Cancer Research charity places, but both are free to spectators to watch.
