The Festival of Endurance at Hever Castle (brought to you by the Castle Triathlon Series) is an atmospheric sporting event set in the most stunning historic grounds. It offers athletes the chance to take on multiple races and runs during the day with a bias to off road terrain. You don’t start many runs by a castle draw bridge!
The spectators also have a great time with a lapped course offering plenty of chances for them to cheer on relatives and friends and while not busy cheering a chance to visit the castle or take in the live music and event village entertainment.
The Half Marathon is two laps and the Full Marathon is four both distances taking in two castles (Hever and Chiddingstone) and stunning villages and cross country courses.
The stunning run was rated an average 4.4/5.0 on Racecheck in 2018 and includes reviews like below:
“A great mix of challenging course and beautiful scenery, the difficulty increased with the hot weather but the water and feed stations were perfectly placed and kept up with the inevitable rush which was very welcome. In summary, challenging but rewarding. Great stuff”

My first event so little to compare to. I certainly thoroughly enjoyed it. Muddy and rainy - car park closures, change of route but all done in a calm informative fashion. Strava seems to think I ran .25km. short of a half (along with my 'group') - not sure if the co...Read full review
