Sunday 19 June 2011: Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon

A message from Brian Adcock, Race Director of the Castle Triathlon Series.

“For the second year, there will be a triathlon at Cholmondeley Castle, kicking off a series of four events that are part of the Castle Triathlon Series around the country.  We are hoping to emulate what we have achieved down in Hever Castle in Kent where this year we will have over 1000 children taking part and an inter school competition to boot.

We are supporting Help 4 Heroes as our national charity and the Wingate Centre as our local charity for the event. Adults’ races of varying lengths (good starter distance for newcomers) and children’s races (as young as 8 years) are available. You can even do the race as a relay if you don’t fancy the swimming and have a friend that does!”
