This date over the UK bank holiday weekend hosts the French leg of the Castle Triathlon Series in the spectacular and historic town of Chantilly, (2.5hrs drive from Calais) 40 miles North of Paris in the Picardie region.
After the hugely successful introduction of “The Chantilly” a couple of years ago, an Olympic distance race, we will retain this for 2013 Event, enabling triathletes to race with English and French elite triathletes over the distance they will have competed in at the Olympic Games in London 2012.
In 2013 we are very excited about the addition of offering a half iron distance, ‘Le Gauntlet’, at the Château de Chantilly Triathlon in 2013. Taking place on Sunday 25th August 2013, it will consist of a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and a 21km run. Click here for more information.
In the height of summer the weather is sure to provide an idyllic setting as a competitive field from both the United Kingdom and Europe embark on this truly unique race. Chantilly has all the ingredients for a fantastic and challenging race with the 2.5km Grand Canal overlooked by the Château and its gardens. Triathletes will transition within the ‘Terrasse des Connétables’ and set off into a fast 20km or 40km cycle circuit around the Forêt de Chantilly. Re-entering transition triathletes run the surrounding woodlands and Chateau gardens finishing within site of the beautiful Chateau.
