Overview

Following the successful launch of the Castle Swim Series last year, we will one again bring 5km, 2.5km and 1 mile swims to all 5 of these iconic castles (Hever Castle’s July event will see the 10K Marathon, 3.8k and 1.8k Swims) giving swimmers and triathletes the exclusive use of the lakes. These events promise not just stunning swim courses, but a medal, finishing banquet and festival event village filled with live music and entertainment. All swimmers will be provided with timing chips and the races categorised into wetsuits and non-wetsuits. Prizes will be awarded for the first place male and female competitors in each distance. Just a week after the Summer Solstice, the second leg of the 2018 Castle Swim Series will take place at Cholmondeley Castle during the long, bucolic days of June. Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon event attracts thousands of competitors and supporters to the beautiful countryside of Cheshire. The event offers the quintessential Castle Swim Series experience of competitive and fun racing, an epic castle backdrop and a stunning location.
