We have introduced a tiered entry fee system for all our 2018 events.
As athletes ourselves we aim to keep the entry fee’s as sensible as we can, although there are small increases every 2-3 years as the organisational costs increase. This tiered system still offers you the chance to enter at the same, or less than previous years.

The Bastion, the final stronghold of a medieval castle, features a 3.8km river and lake swim, a true toughie of a 180km bike course with 3,000m of climbing and a 42.2km run course that takes place largely off-road including running through the grounds of the beautiful Chiddingstone Castle. The event has generated rave reviews, helping grow this event into one of the truly iconic long distance triathlons in the world.
220 Triathlon has listed The Bastion as a ‘must-do’ race
An out-and-back fast course the race runs west towards Shoreham on the promenade. After Hove Lagoon the course meets Basin Road South (this will be closed for the race).

The event has been honoured that the race has sold out every year and has been featured in The Guardian’s Top 5 cycle events, in WhatMTB’s Top 10 Must Ride events, in Bike Magic’s Top 6 events who said “it’s a event every mountain biker should do” and more recently listed in the The World’s Ultimate Cycle Races, with it being one of the very few MTB entries.
It is a 6 hour race. If you are in pairs or teams this will take the form of a relay so only one member of your team out on the course at any one time. There will be a pit area where you can handover the baton to your team mate. The race will finish at 6pm and only laps completed by this time will count, so think if it gets to 5.20pm think carefully about if you want to go out again, because if you are not in by 6pm then it won’t count. Prize giving, and there are a lot of prizes, will be from 6.30pm in the main arena under the unflatable arch.
The SIGN ON period is from 9.30 until 11am. You will have access to the course before 11am for a warm up lap. Please note a full lap is approx 8 miles and could take over 40 minutes dependant on your ability. Every rider to access the course will need a number and helmet.
