In just seven years the 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.
With no fewer than 16 race choices on offer, 7,000 triathletes ventured to Hever Castle in September 2015, with entries increasing for the seventh year running. To cement the race’s title as the world’s largest children’s triathlon 1,600 youth athletes took part in September. As in previous years, the children’s races are split over two days (8-10 year olds on Saturday afternoon and 11-15 year olds on Sunday afternoon).
