In light of the recent government announcement (Monday 22 Feb), we are very encouraged to see a return to organised outdoor sport from March 29. All our 2021 events will fall in line with National Governing Body guidance and we are therefore very confident that we will be able to deliver a safe and successful season of mass participation events. We look forward to kicking off our season with the Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon and Multi-Sport Festival on June 19th/20th.

Organiser's Description

The Castle Triathlon Series makes its yearly pilgrimage over the English Channel in August for the 2020 series. Set over the UK bank holiday weekend at the end of August, the racing will take place in the spectacular and historic town of Chantilly, just a 2.5hrs drive from Calais and 40 miles North of Paris.

Starting in the formal gardens with the Chateau as a backdrop, competitors initially head off on the internal estate tracks towards Porte Vaillant, one of the main gates on the eastern edge of the estate. The 10k follows the same route but only requires the participants to complete one loop.

Course Details

Starting in the formal gardens with the Chateau as a backdrop, competitors initially head off on the internal estate tracks towards Porte Vaillant, one of the main gates on the eastern edge of the estate. Then, heading North and after passing the otherworldly Wallaby Enclosure, runners will circumnavigate Parc de Syvlie (a woodland garden) before arriving, after 4K, at Grille de Honor, the main spectator entrance to the Chateau. A small cobbled section is then followed by a 5K circuit of the World famous Hippodrome de Chantilly (racecourse). After passing the Museum of Horse and re-entering the estate at the Grille de Jeu de Paume participants then have a 1.5K ramble through the Jardin Anglais and back into the formal gardens. With the finish line in sight, runners take the left hand fork, cross the formal gardens and ascend the ramp to transition before completing a 2nd lap of the same circuit. On completion of the 2nd lap, competitors turn right onto the finishing straight with the world-famous chateau backdrop, to receive their medal and classy finishing line banquet!

The 10k is one lap the half marathon is two laps.
