As well as the Bastion triathlon, we’ll also be hosting the Hever Gaunlet Half-iron Triathlon. The Gaunlet is comprised of a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and a 21km run.

There are some new Castle Triathlon events coming to Hever Castle too, including: the Hever long distance swim compromising of either 1.9km or 3.8km, the Hever long distance aquabike with two options of either a 1.9k swim and 60k cycle or 3.8k swim and 120k cycle. As well as that, we’ll also be hosting the Hever long distance aquathlon with the shorter distance being 1.9k swim with a 10k run or the longer distance of a 3.8k swim followed by a 21k run. For details and to enter please visit the Castle Triathlon website. 

Access for Visitors – The Bastion starts at 5am and will continue throughout the day. The swim is in the Lake and river and will be completed by 11.30am. Transition takes place on Half Moon Lawn and some of this area will be restricted. Cyclists and runners will be in the grounds during the day but due to the limited numbers of competitors and their varying abilities this is unlikely to impact your enjoyment of your visit.
