Beautiful, challenging course. You don’t get many places as beautiful as Hever Castle for running or triathlon. The course is challenging because of its hills, so you might not PR for your favourite distance but you will challenge your abilities in beautiful scenery.

11.6k not 10k. The kilometre markers were a km out. Ass soon as I came to the first marker, 3k, I think, my gps had me at 4K so after 10k on my watch I had no idea how long there was to go. Myself and the other competitors all found our garmins said between 11.5 and 11.6k by the end. Lacklustre ever village and medal, very trodden and muddy and the race was delayed by an hour. I think it would be a good triathlon but the 10k wasn’t that well organised I didn't feel.
