castle triathlon series logo pictures, triathlon reviewCastle Triathlon Series has announced that it’s first full iron distance race called The Bastion will take place on Sunday 13th July 2013 at Hever Castle. This is the first time the Series has held a race at Hever Castle away from the September flag ship event which TriReview covered here

Castle Triathlon are clearly taking advantage of the ever-growing appetite for iron-distance races. Ironman only the other day boasted of record sales for it’s races and the Challenge series is planning it’s new race in Weymouth for next year.

The Bastion will be teamed with a swim festival with unique opportunities for children and adults to swim a range of distances including the stunning loop through Hever Castle lake and River Eden.

Winner of The Gauntlet (the half iron distance version of the race) at The 2013 Hever Castle Triathlon, Karl Alexander, is looking at putting the new Bastion in his race diary;

Having raced some of the toughest and most iconic races the UK has to offer, The Gauntlet at Hever Castle more than holds its own. With a unique swim comprising both lake and river followed by a brutally beautiful bike course and a run through the stunning castle grounds this event comes with serious bragging rights and you might even make it on TV! Put this in your diary for 2014!”

Full course maps of the new 140.6 mile course are still to be published. Details and registration can be found here on the official race website: http://www.castletriathlonseries.co.uk/en/bastion-race/
