However, as one drawbridge closes another one opens and we have some fantastic news! Brian Adcock, our Race Director, has acquired a new jewel for the castle crown! We are delighted to announce that Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire, has joined the Castle Race Series for the 2024 season.
Belvoir Castle’s history dates back to the eleventh century. It is the ancestral home of the Duke of Rutland, where the family have lived in an unbroken line for almost a thousand years.
Crowning a hill, the Castle’s turrets and towers rise over the Vale of Belvoir like an illustration in a romantic fairy-tale. The name Belvoir – meaning ‘beautiful view’ in French, and pronounced today as ‘beaver’ – dates back to Norman times.
The Belvoir Castle Triathlon and Multisport Festival will take place on the 27/28 July 2024, (the very same weekend Howard was due to take place). The multi-sport format offering will remain the same and includes a stunning onsite wild camping area.
