Overview

The beautiful estate of Belvoir Castle set’s the scene for the perfect multisport weekend event!

Like an illustration in a romantic fairy-tale, crowning the top of an isolated hill, the castle turrets and towers rise above the Vale of Belvoir.  Looking over the battlements from the North Terrace, you can see for miles over the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. The name Belvoir – meaning ‘beautiful view’ in French, is pronounced today as ‘beaver’.

Fan’s of TV series The Crown, will recognise several scenes filmed at Belvoir Castle. This Regency Castle was the perfect fit to recreate the Royals’ residence.

The Belvoir Castle event will feature some truly iconic courses amidst the 3000 acres of naturally designed landscape, a large range of races for all ages and abilities, whether you’re 9 or 90 years old, a first-timer or an elite.
