Overview

The UK’s most stunning and sought after triathlon event is the finale of the both the Castle Run 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. Put simply, instant classic doesn’t do the Hever Castle Triathlon justice.

The Hever Castle 10K follows the same route as the Half Marathon but only requires the participants to complete one loop. See attached map for more detail. 10K is achieved when the Finish Line is crossed in front of a huge bank of spectators in the main events field of the castle.

The Half Marathon and Marathon will see competitors undertake laps of a spectator friendly almost entirely off road 10.5K circuit. Starting a few yards from the main castle drawbridge competitors will head off around the formal gardens of the estate.

Sub-2 half!!!! I really enjoyed this Hever Castle event. It was my first half marathon race. And I have to say I thought it was very well organised. Especially with the event organisers having to deal with the Covid distancing issues. The registration to event area was ...Read full review

I thought the route was well marked with plenty of off road parts, a few hills but nothing too taxing.  Very well organised and great that the event went ahead considering the COVID restrictions.  Thought it was very well organised and a succesful event
