Hundreds enjoyed the inaugural 10k and half marathon run at Cholmondeley Castle this weekend

June 26, 2018

The ultimate sport festival including run, triathlon and swim saw thousands of athletes bask in glory and bathed in sunshine as they raced around the Cholmondeley Castle estate and Cheshire countryside this weekend (24th June).

The inaugural 10k and half marathon saw hundreds of runners enjoy the off-road run course which has been enjoyed by triathletes for the last nine years.

Course records were set with the winning 10k being taken by Race Director’s, Brian Adcock, cousin, Matt Adcock with a time of 00:34:04.

As well as the married couple who made podium for the triathlon, there were plenty of singles racing including crowd favourite ‘Princess Susan’. Susan was so excited about the unusual romantic castle setting that the regular runner turned up dressed as a princess. Speaking ahead of the race wearing a puffy gold dress and holding a plastic yellow rose, ‘Princess Susan’ from Chester said she was single and looking for her ‘Prince Charming’. Sadly Susan finished the race alone but battled through 25* heat and won a legion of fans who revelled in her fairy-tale sprint finish. Susan is taking on six half marathons this year in preparation for a full marathon to fundraise for Hospice Douglas Macmillan.

The eclectic sporting event at Cholmondeley Castle, from the Castle Triathlon Series, presented 10 different triathlon race distances along with the new off-road runs (half marathon and 10k) and stunning swim only events (1 mile, 2.5k and 5k) as part of the new Castle Run and Castle Swim Series.

Hundreds camped by the castle lake, bands played and the Rock Choir of 60 strong singers motivated competitors on course and entertained spectators in the event village supporting Macmillan Cancer resulting in a true sports festival. The event village even offered free entertainment for children and yoga every hour!
