Venue

Cheshire

This castle has been home to the Cholmondeley Family since the 12th Century. Its grounds feature Deer Park Mere which is a beautiful setting for our open-water swim races. To the south of the Castle lies Tower Hill, the highest point of the run routes, where athletes are rewarded with panoramic views of the Beeston and Peckforton Hills.

Throughout the weekend, athletes and spectators will be able to enjoy a fun-packed festival village featuring live music, shopping, food and drink, children’s entertainment, yoga and more.
