Jameson’s brother, Toby, and wife, Cat, also established their Gi Tri Bridgetown relay team as new relay record holders, finishing in 8:01:10. They’d been set up to break the record by an incredible 4:21:32 bike split from UK Ironman record holder, Tom Lowe.

Joel Jameson was impressed with the Outlaw course when he’d watched the inaugural race in 2010. Had it not been for getting married and going on honeymoon just a month before the race, Jameson thought he could have gone faster.

He said: “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 my time could have been better.”

Catherine Faux, 23, who is studying medicine at Sheffield University, was the winning woman, despite having never covered the distance before and doing the Outlaw on a borrowed bike. She said: “I’m really happy to have won, I wasn’t expecting it!”

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

Joel Jameson and Catherine Faux won the 2011 Outlaw Triathlon on 24 July in at Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre in Nottingham. They set new record times of 8:47:47 and 10:22:51 respectively, some of the fastest long distance triathlon times set in the UK.
