Hever Hosts a Night Swim

The Castle Triathlon Series has an exciting end of season finale event for triathletes and swimmers as part of the 10-year anniversary celebrations when, on Saturday 22nd September, during the Hever Castle Triathlon weekend, they will host their first ‘Night Swim’.

The new event promises an atmospheric and unique opportunity to swim under the stars in the iconic Hever Castle lake and river Eden.

Starting at 8pm, swimmers can enjoy one of three distances (all untimed) – 400m, 750m or 1,500m. Accompanied by atmospheric lighting and classical music the event is a perfect addition to a weekend triathlon, run or swim and will be a spectacle for spectators and participants alike.

All swimmers will receive a swim hat, glow-sticks and medal. Warm refreshments will be available along with a licensed bar for the post-race warm down. The swimmers event village, on the Italian lawn by the loggia, will be set up with a heated changing room and bag drop area.

Participants can also book a campsite plot and make a weekend of it with a campsite within easy walking distance to the swim start and set in the stunning castle grounds.
