Overview

With exclusive access to the unique Hever Castle lake and river swim, a fully supported bike course and the option to finish on a gentle run circumnavigating the estate – there’s a training option for everybody into long distance course. The swim course leaves from the Italianate loggia taking competitors down the length of the main lake and heading into the scenic river section. This tributary of the River Eden wraps around 16 Acre Island allowing spectators to watch and cheer competitors on from only a few meters away, and a medal and finish line banquet will be waiting for you on dry land.
