We were delighted with our first event Castle Virtual Series weekend of 2021 – The Arctic Monkey! This event saw competitors (aged 6 to 81 years old!) come together from Australia, France, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, New Zealand, USA and UK to run, walk, bike and yes even swim, across 23 race distances. Some athletes even braved snowy conditions and icy open water swims! It is great to be battling through the winter training and national lockdowns as a community, staying positive and motivated together.

In response to the rapid increase in the number of runners who are choosing to increase their competitive running distances the organisers of the Hever Castle Triathlon, the UK’s second largest triathlon event, have created a 50 mile run route that will be an excellent addition to their already busy Festival of Endurance. The event, due to take place over the weekend of 3rd/4th July, is open to all runners/ walkers over the age of 18 who can make the distance inside of the cut off time of 17 hours.
