Kendal Castle Aquathlon

Kendal ‘Castle’ Aquathlon is a great way to start the season, it can be entered as a solo (you swim then run) or as a relay (one person swims and then hands over to a runner). Whichever way you want to do it, we make it our mission to make this a relaxed, friendly event.

Starting with a 400m swim in the pool and then transition to a 5km off-road run using the route of the old canal for a short distance then onto woodland trails and the grassy slopes up to (and around) the Castle ruins before returning to the centre for a warming brew…..

Remember that this is a ‘dusk’ event, so there’s a good chance much of the run will be in low light or darkness, so a headtorch is mandatory.
