    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.

  • Louth Triathlon

    Louth Triathlon Indoor Pool Swim Bike Run

    Date: Sunday 1st September 2019

    Location: Meridian Leisure Centre, Wood Lane, Louth, Lincolnshire, LN11 8AR

    Event Type and Distance: Sprint Triathlon 400m pool swim/22k bike/5k run

    Amenities: Chip timing, indoor pool swim, prizes, medals for all competitors, secure transition, post-race massage

    Entry Price: From £30

    This sprint distance triathlon is ideal for 1st timers as well as the more experienced triathlete. The swim is held in an indoor swimming pool in a leisure centre and the safe, secure transition area is in the neighbouring school fields. The bike course is relatively flat, although watch out for a few inclines which will force you out of the saddle.

    The run takes you around some of the lanes in Louth and up an old disused train line along Railway Walk. The walk is very picturesque and a little hidden gem in Louth, and possibly the best part of the race. The water station is positioned so you can get liquid refreshment twice along the 2 lap course. Railway Walk will be closed to the general public on race day, so you can enjoy the tree lined path without interruption.

The bike route follows along Drummond Road and consists of a 2 lap course between the Holiday Park and Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve on a relatively flat and straight 18k course. The route has turning points at either end that will be fully marshalled. The run element is a trail run from Richmond Holiday Park and along a private road to the Skegness Eco Coastal Centre. Part of the course will be around the beautiful Eco Centre and its wooded areas. Skegness Triathlon Club is based at the award winning Richmond Holiday Park and will be on hand to talk triathlon as well as to give advice on membership to the Triathlon Club.

    Skegness is a typical British seaside town boasting beautiful sea views for tourists and locals alike. This triathlon takes place in and around a holiday park and competitors are lucky enough to be able to follow private roads and see sights that others may not be able to see.
