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.

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.

Situated 30 miles from London in West Kent, exit the M25 at junctions 5 or 6 and follow the Brown tourist signs. Also well signed from the Hildenborough exit of the A21.

With such a busy event we urge you to check your journey time and allow plenty of time to access the car parks. All car parks are in adjoining fields to the event. Please follow the below instructions to avoid delays

On approaching to the venue, be sure to follow the yellow triathlon car park signs. DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR SAT NAV.

It is roughly 10 – 15 minutes walk to the event village.

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.
