    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 doesn’t 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 as well as taking runners through land owned by the Bellhurst Nature Conservation Trust (the majority of this section is not on public rights of way), then returning to the award-winning castle grounds before athletes make the dash to the tree-lined finishing chute beside the lake.

    Hever Castle is steeped in history, dating all the way back to 1270 and being strongly linked to the Tudors, including Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. It has also been the backdrop to several films, including The Princess Diaries, and provides a picture-postcard setting for this fantastic event.

    Reading Triathlon Sundried Cycling

    Date: Sunday 1st September 2019

    Location: Tri20 Swim Centre, Kirtons Farm Rd, Burghfield, Reading, RG30 3UN

    Event Type and distance:

    Sprint Distance Triathlon 750m swim - 22km bike - 5.4km run

    Standard Distance Triathlon 1500m swim - 44km bike - 10.8km run

    Reading boasts being the birthplace of UK triathlon, with the first ever event in the UK being held there in 1983. The event was reborn in 2010 and is now an annual event.

    The event could be known as "The 110% triathlon" as the bike and run sections are 10% over the standard distances, but the organisers see it as you getting more for your money!

    The Olympic Distance swim will be a 2 loop course and the Sprint Distance race will be a single loop. 

    The bike course starts on a closed road from the hotel grounds before heading out into some beautiful Berkshire countryside; it’s gently undulating but no more than that! For the Sprint you’ll complete one lap of 22km and it’s two 22km laps for the Standard Distance.

    The run is 3 laps around a lovely lakeside trail for the Sprint event and 6 laps for the Standard distance.
