Hever Castle Triathlon has established itself as an essential destination for British and international triathletes and the mainstream media, for its picture postcard venue, elite action, age-group choice and festival atmosphere. Put simply, instant classic doesnt do the Hever Castle Triathlon justice.

The races commence with an open-water swim in the spectacular 38 acre Hever Castle Lake and River Eden, transitioning into the undulating cycle that takes athletes around a circuit through the High Weald of Kent, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and up to the stunning Ashdown forest for the longer distance races. The largely off-road run circumnavigates the estate and award-winning castle grounds before athletes make the dash to the tree-lined finishing chute beside the lake.

Returning for 2018 will be the Junior Long Course Weekend! Taking place alongside the full Long Course Weekend, children aged 14-17 years old will take part in a 1.2 mile swim, 42 mile cycle and 10k run.

It is crucial that those entering are competent at all three disciplines, as there will be open sea waters for the swim which may have currents to contend with, and open roads during the cycle stage.

Entrants must be aged 14 17 over the three days. Please note photographic identification will be required at registration. Athletes without this may not be registered by the start time of the event.

The rapturous reception afforded to previous Castle Howard Triathlons subsequently led to the expansion of a 2-day weekend extravaganza.

In its 9th year, the Castle Howard Triathlon will be the 4th weekend event of the 2018 Castle Tri Series and will once again feature the obligatory picture postcard backdrop and a course with something for every level of triathlete. The 13,000 acre grounds of Castle Howard form arguably the most physically demanding triathlon course of the Castle Tri Series.

Race entrants will start the race by swimming through Castle Howards Great Lake before transitioning into the technical bike route through the glorious rural idyll of Yorkshire and the Howardian Hills. The spectacular run leg passes through the undulating countryside of the estate before a sprint finish tops everything off in style right in front of the main doors of the house. Theres never been a better time to visit Gods Own County and Castle Howard.

The construction of Castle Howard took more than 100 years before being finally completed in the 18th Century, and spanned the lifetime of three earls and numerous architects, although Sir John Vanbrugh is credited with the original design. The Great Lake is the setting for the swim section of the triathlon.

Set in the Howardian Hills, the bike legs initially take in the 18th Century Avenue, a main road that runs in a straight line from south to north for five miles. The run will pass The Temple of the Four Winds and one of the finest, free-standing mausoleums in Europe. A hop over New River Bridge, a circumnavigation of South Lake and the Atlas Fountain will take racers to the finishing straight in front of Castle Howard itself.

Castle Howard has been a regular backdrop for films and television, with both ITVs lauded Brideshead Revisited in the early 1980s and the acclaimed 2008 feature film production shot on location here, hence the name of our adult races.

This fast section takes cyclists through some picturesque villages before returning to Buckingham Town.

Swim in the shallow, beginner friendly 6 lane pool with only 4 people per lane. You will get to swim with people of similar ability, so dont worry about it being to intimidating.

Cycle out of the historic medieval city into the wilds of Hampshire, for a quiet and rolling ride, taking in the lovely small village of Sparsholt and the home of the Winchester Duathlon, Lainston house.

Transition is tree lined and an impressive linear feature, making it easy for you to find your bike in a hurry. The run is slightly hilly with one long drag down out of the school and back up again. It's a combo of footpath and running around the flat school playing fields. With lots of opportunities for your spectators to cheer you on!

The finish is close to the lap point which makes for great spectating. Once you've crossed through gantry and over the finish line your bespoke Medal awaits you.

May Day Tri also hosts an awesome Childrens Triathlon. This is a mini version of the main event which is also chip timed and is all located on site. The childrens tri has become a very popular over the last 3 years. As the event takes place after the adults event, it's a great opportunity for the whole family to take part, and introduce your children into the world of triathlon.

Getting here: SO22 5PN Kings School is in on the edge of Winchester. From the M3 junction 11 take the signs for Olivers Battery, then follow sign for triathlon car parking.
