Castle Hill Corker 2022 update
Event cancelled.

Issued 22nd Feb 2022

Some of you may have seen that the Castle Hill estate lost a lot of trees in the recent storms. Unfortunately, due to the shear amount of trees that need clearing, it will not be possible to hold the Castle Hill Corker this Sunday.

An email will be sent to all who had booked for this event to detail what will happen next.

I am very sorry about this cancellation, but I am sure you all understand that with the damage to the course, it is impossible for us to hold this race safely.

Thank you to everyone who booked a place and to all of the volunteers for their work behind the scenes. Thank you to the team at Castle Hill, also.

See you all next year.


Update 7th March 2022

All entries will be moved to the 2023 event. If you would prefer to get a refund please contact us at
