Outlaws Take Over Nottingham

A new course record was set at the Outlaw Half Nottingham on Sunday 21st May when triathlete Mark Threlfall crossed the finish line in a time of 3hours 56:00.

Perhaps even more incredible though was the achievements of Gill Fullen, who despite having gone through chemotherapy and surgery only months ago, crossed the finish line in 4hours 42:01 to be named the fastest woman.

It was a glorious day in Nottingham for all the ‘Outlaws’ though, with near perfect racing conditions and great numbers of supporters lining the course.

The occasion was also a terrific demonstration of the huge variety of printed items we can provide to events here at Your Print Partner.

Rows of tall feather flags and metres of aero banner, produced by the YPP team, helped create a colourful finish line area. We designed and printed a number of foamex boards to decorate the finish gantry and timing clock, as well as the PVC finish tape handed to the winning triathletes.

We produced this giant cheque, adove, presented to winning triathlete Mark Threlfall at the post-race presentations in front of an Impact Pop-Up Fabric Display decorated in the famous Outlaw orange. Impact Pop-Ups are ideal for presentations as their strong and lightweight frame means they can be easily transported to almost any location, and the 210gsm display fabric provides a great non-reflective printed surface for logos and sponsors messages.

“We are very proud to have been able to work with OSB Events on yet another fantastically organised event” said YPP Managing Director Stuart Maclaren. “Effective outdoor branding really can contribute to an excellent event atmosphere. We hope all the triathletes and their friends and family had a great time, and get their names down for next year’s event as soon as possible”.


Outlaw Triathlon 2015

Athletes of all different abilities braved the rain in Nottinghamshire yesterday, completing a gruelling 140 mile course to become true Outlaws!

The Oultaw Triathlon is in its sixth year, and has become a firm favourite with triathletes from all over the country – with many raising money for a wide range of charities.

After a 3.8km swim in the Regatta Lake at the National Water Sports Centre, competitors move onto a 180km bike ride, before completing the course with a marathon run along the River Trent. The finish line is positioned back at the National Water Sports Centre, in Holme Pierrepont.

Hundreds of supporters are concentrated at the finish line, which always generates a terrific atmosphere.

At Your Print Partner, we designed and produced the branding that lines the final run to the finish. We printed feather flags and fencing scrim, all in the event’s trademark orange, and also the boards covering the metal finish gantry promoting the Outlaw sponsors.

Despite the typically British summer weather, it was another hugely successful day for this popular triathlon.

“Colourful printed branding really contributes to the atmosphere at outdoor events” said YPP Managing Director Stuart Maclaren.

“We are particularly proud to have been able to work with the Outlaw Triathlon again this year, and would like to congratulate the organisers and their fabulous team of volunteers on another successful event.”
