Organiser's Description

The Festival of Endurance promises another exhilarating and atmospheric celebration of ‘going long’ at the iconic and stunning Hever Castle. Loved by competitors and spectators alike the event is hailed the friendliest and most beautiful on the tri radar. The swim is in the main Hever Castle lake and a tributary of the River Eden; the cycle winds its way through the stunning High Weald of Kent and the Ashdown Forest; the run follows largely off-road tracks and bridle paths between Hever Castle and the historic local village of Chiddingstone. A further 3 challenges will be on offer for those looking for an opportunity to ‘go long’ on the sections of the Bastion course: Aquabike Challenge, Aquathlon Challenge, and the Hever Long Swim.

[Middle distance duathlon] This was a very friendly festival with lots of great marshals happy to answer questions from a novice. The pre event information and the briefing on the day we're very comprehensive. The run was undulating but not hilly, and was scenic through the castle ground and surrounding area. Everything felt well organised and there were good food facilities at the end. The bike ride was TOUGH though. 815m of ascent in 45km and some steep descents on fast, poorly surfaced roads which felt pretty hairy for a first event! The junctions were well marshalled and two hazards red flagged but there were long stretches of road with no marshals and we had no means of contacting anyone in the event of injury or bike issues, in a very rural area. A fun event, and I'm glad I did it. I would race with this organiser again, but probably not on this route (or at least not without a lot more experience on the bike and some extra gears!)
