Belvoir Castle Triathlon filling up fast

first_imgThe organising team at Just Racing UK has announced that entries to this year’s Belvoir Castle Triathlon events are filling up quickly. This means that those athletes who are interested in racing should get entries in soon to avoid disappointment.The Belvoir Castle Triathlon events take place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 May 2014 in the stunning grounds of the Belvoir Estate in Leicestershire. The organisers note that there really is no better location for a race either, as the rolling local landscape and historical castle buildings make for a spectacular race backdrop, taking in the very best of the British countryside.Formerly known as the BeaverFest events (The Beaver, The Little Beaver and The Speedy Beaver), the branding has certainly been original and will no doubt have raised a few eyebrows over the years. New for 2014, the team at Just Racing UK rebranded the events so that they will now be referred to as the Belvoir Castle Triathlons.(The newly branded Belvoir Castle Triathlons in May are separate and distinct from the Castle Triathlon Series, which runs in the UK, Ireland and France.)The Belvoir Castle Middle Distance Triathlon takes place on Saturday 24 May and the Belvoir Castle Olympic and Sprint events take place on Sunday 25 May 2014.The event is designed to be a real ‘weekend affair’, with a jam-packed schedule of activities. There is something for everyone, with three race distances to choose from as well as the addition of a special kids event, new for this year.The event schedule is as follows:Saturday 24 May 2014Belvoir Castle – Middle Distance 1.9K swim, 74K bike, 20K runBelvoir Castle – Kids Race, a range of distances for ages 8-16Sunday 25 May 2014Belvoir Castle – Olympic Distance 1.5K swim, 40K bike, 10K runBelvoir Castle – Sprint Distance 750m swim, 20K bike, 5K runAlan Rose, Just Racing UK Managing Director said “Entries have been coming in thick and fast for our Belvoir Castle Triathlon events and we are really pleased with the amount of interest that we have seen already. Now in its ninth year, these events are the perfect opportunity to enjoy some early season racing, and a great chance to ‘warm up’ for events later in the year.“If you are interested in racing this year then we recommend that you enter soon to save disappointment, and secure your place on the start line in May!” Relatedlast_img
