We are excited to announce that the atmospheric Festival of Endurance will host its first marathon in 2017 at the iconic Hever Castle.
Forget the city marathon, and fill your lungs with country air and stunning scenery before you conquer your marathon by a Castle drawbridge. This new marathon promises the most stunning on and off road course in the UK, a truly motivational and beautiful route that will distract you from the challenge itself. The four-laps take in two castles, two lakes, quaint Kentish villages with oust houses and castle grounds with spectators and locals cheering you on all the way!
Formed in 2009, the Castle Triathlon Series has swiftly established itself as the UK’s largest triathlon series. With 7,000 entrants expected at our Hever Castle event in September this year it is not just the second biggest race in the UK triathlon calendar but it also secured the title of the world’s largest children’s triathlon in 2014
As part of the Festival of Endurance at Hever Castle, the Half Marathon takes in two castles, two lakes, quaint Kentish villages with oust houses and castle grounds with spectators and locals cheering you on all the way! And there is a big celebration with medal and finishing line banquet as you cross the finishing line in sight of the drawbridge.
