In light of the recent government announcement (Monday 22 Feb), we are very encouraged to see a return to organised outdoor sport from March 29. All our 2021 events will fall in line with National Governing Body guidance and we are therefore very confident that we will be able to deliver a safe and successful season of mass participation events. We look forward to kicking off our season with the Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon and Multi-Sport Festival on June 19th/20th.

Camping is available at a picturesque spot in the castle grounds.

We organised a hugely successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020 for over 4000 participants and their supporters. This has given us, the Industry but most importantly our participants, the confidence to return to racing in 202!.

We want to reassure all participants that we’ll continue to work closely with Government, governing bodies, venues and suppliers to ensure that our 2021 events are run in accordance with current health and safety guidance.

Our increased health and safety measures cover 5 key principles of education: touch point reduction, density reduction, athlete self-reliance and enhanced hygiene.

Should we be required to put on a socially distanced event, participants will still get the full race experience but with individual rolling starts, 1 competitor every 10 seconds (sometimes greater), restricted time on site either side of your race and possible limit on spectators per athlete only.

We will prepare venue specific documents to send to all participants ahead of the event. These will include details on how to prepare pre-event, arrival timings and movements, swim, cycle, run, festival village and exit.

The Cholmondeley Castle 10K runners will complete 2 laps of a 5K circuit. Starting adjacent to the cricket pitch and in full view of the castle, the 1st K of the course follows a well-worn track to an area of the estate called Cattle Crush where runners continue around the beautiful estate grounds with the final 1K, mostly downhill and off road, passing the castle tea rooms, over the croquet lawn and down the main lawn of the castle. 10K is achieved when the Finish Line.

The Half Marathon and Marathon will see competitors undertake laps of the spectator friendly 7K estate loop. Starting within full view of the castle, runners take in the beautiful and interesting estate grounds and stunning views of the Peckforton Hills, on a varied course comprising of track, tarmac and off-road.
