Overview

The rapturous reception afforded to previous Castle Howard Triathlons subsequently led to the expansion of a two day weekend extravaganza.

The Castle Howard Triathlon will be the fourth weekend event of the 2020 Castle Tri Series and will once again feature the obligatory picture postcard backdrop and a course with something for every level of triathlete. Indeed, the 9,000 acre grounds of Castle Howard form arguably the most physically demanding triathlon course of the Castle Tri Series.

Race entrants will start the race by swimming through Castle Howard’s Great Lake before transitioning into the technical bike route through the glorious rural idyll of Yorkshire and the Howardian Hills. The spectacular run leg passes through the undulating countryside of the estate before a sprint finish tops everything off in style right in front of the main doors of the house.

I actually did the 10K race but didn't get the option to pick that from the website.  It was a great event with a great family atmosphere.  The race was reasonably hilly but there were enough water stops.  My son did the childrens triathlon and absolutley loved...Read full review
