The Gauntlet at Hever Castle
The Gauntlet 1.9km/90km/21km – Half iron distance race. The Festival of Endurance at Hever Castle will host the 2018 British Triathlon Middle Distance Championship. This middle distance course is made for a National Championship with the 1.9km swim will involve a single loop taking in the main Hever Castle lake and a tributary of the river Eden (being dredged in Autumn 2012 & 2013). The 90km cycle (2 loop course) winds its way through the stunning High Weald of Kent and the Ashdown Forest. The 21km run course is 2 loops of 10.5km, will take in the existing 5km Hever Castle Triathlon course but with a 5km extension via tracks and bridle paths though the historic local village of Chiddingstone. The course includes a strong off road element which allows a highly inspirational setting often praised and welcomed by the elite triathletes. The results from this event can be submitted for general Age Group selection to the 2019 ETU Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships. Those athletes that become the British Triathlon national champion in their age group will automatically pre-qualify to the 2019 ETU Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships! Please note to be eligible for a National Championship medal, you must be a member of British Triathlon.
