The safety of our community is our priority and we are always working (and adapting) our plans to ensure safe racing.

All our 2022 events will be run in line with government guidelines and, if required, we have plans in place to run them as socially distanced events.

We ran a very successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020. If required, we have safety plans in place so that all events and all venues can be run as socially distanced events. If this is necessary, we keep our community informed and will be in touch with relevant athletes with detailed information.

Our decision making will be informed by announcements from and conversations with the following groups:

  • Government
  • Sporting governing bodies
  • Venues
  • Suppliers
  • Athletes

To plan and run socially distanced events, we are guided by the following five principals:

  • Education Communication
  • Density Reduction
  • Touch Point Reduction
  • Athlete Self-Reliance
  • Hygiene Emphasis

It is vital that as a community, we all take responsibility to keep each other safe whilst preparing and taking part our event weekends. We are grateful for your continued support and understanding.

Castle Race Series has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

Part of the Castle Triathlon Series Weekend of Multisport, Swimming and Running.

Arguably the finest castle in the series – Lough Cutra – provides a fitting backdrop for the curtain raiser of the Castle Run Series.

This first race sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds and surrounding area of stunning South Galway. What’s more, in 2022 the race coincides coincides with a Bank Holiday in both the UK and Ireland for the first time in around 7 years. It is also the first weekend of the UK school half term, making it an ideal break for sporty families.
