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

The UK’s most stunning and sought after venue sees the finale of the Castle Swim Series. The swim provides the choice of three different distances: 5k, 2.5k and 1mile, with the unique swim route around the 13-acre island in the River Eden having been hailed as the ‘best open water swim ever’.

The Hever Castle Estate has a wealth of history; most recognisably it was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.

Throughout the weekend, athletes and spectators will be able to enjoy a fun-packed festival village featuring live music, shopping, food and drink, children’s entertainment, yoga and more.
