At Hever, 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 will involve a 2 loop course which is an extension of the Olympic distance, previously offered at the Hever Castle Triathlon, taking in the 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 taking part in the Olympic distance.
Hever Castle Gauntlet can be used as a Qualification race for consideration for selection to the 2018 ETU Middle Distance Triathlon GB Age Group Team, in line with all the criteria being met as outlined on the BTF event page here.
