Overview

The UK’s most stunning and sought after triathlon event is the finale of the both the Castle Swim Series and the UK triathlon season. Hever Castle Triathlon swiftly established itself as an essential destination for triathletes, garnering plaudits and media attention for its picture postcard venue, elite action, age-group choice and festival atmosphere.
