Sun 26th September 2021
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.
This Hever Castle sporting event swiftly established itself as an essential destination for athletes, garnering plaudits and media attention for its picture postcard venue, elite action, age-group choice and festival atmosphere.
All competitors will receive a medal
Each weekend will feature live music and entertainment, retail outlets and concessions, and a variety of locally-sourced foods and refreshments for competitors and spectators alike.
Camping is available at a picturesque spot in the Castle grounds.
