The Castle Virtual Series are weekend race events. Our race days are Friday, Saturday and Sunday and on Monday at 6pm we host a live Prize Giving on Facebook. We celebrate podium places and prizes in the post for the winners, the best dressed, and medals for all.

Race 5 : The Cheshire Cat 19 – 21 June
Race 6 : The Kentish Horse 3 – 5 July

We have 40 races to choose from – Duathlon, Triathlon, Run only, Swim only, Cycle only, Aquabike and Aquathon.  So whether you’re 8 or 88 we have a distance for you.

The Castle Virtual Series will donate 20% of the Entry Fee to our charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support so they can continue to deliver the physical, emotional and financial support to those living with cancer and their families, helping to live life as fully as they can.

A community event

To create a truly community event, we’re asking all participants carry out your challenge over the Event weekends. We hope you enjoy being active with fellow participants virtually, interacting with each other on the Castle Series social media channels and  making the most of the space and time you have to exercise in a safe but competitive environment. Think up creative ways to complete your race is an essential part of the fun! However you need to just GET. IT. DONE.
