Overview

In just eight short years the Hever Castle Triathlon has established itself as an essential destination for British and international triathletes and the mainstream media, 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. With no fewer than 16 race choices on offer, over 6000 triathletes will venture to Hever Castle in September 2019, with entries increasing for the tenth year running. To cement the race’s title as the world’s largest children’s triathlon, a whopping 2000 youth athletes have signed up for September. As in 2016, the children’s races will be split over two days (8-10 year olds on Saturday afternoon and 11-15 year olds on Sunday afternoon). The races will again commence with an open-water swim in the spectacular 38 acre Hever Castle Lake and River Eden, transitioning into the undulating cycle that takes athletes around a circuit through the High Weald of Kent, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and up to the stunning Ashdown forest for the longer distance races. The largely off-road run circumnavigates the estate and award-winning castle grounds before athletes make the dash to the tree-lined finishing chute beside the lake.

It was not clear from the race info that the cycle portion for the 13-15 was off-road and therefore needed a mountain bike. My son crashed a number of times because he was using a road bike in the mud, and hurt himself as a result (it was also painful riding a bike with no suspen...Read full review

It was a bit complicated cycling through the gardens as there were lots of twists and turns and not many signs.
