The Castle Triathlon Series makes its yearly pilgrimage over the English Channel in August for the fifth race of the 2018 series. Set over the UK bank holiday weekend and 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.
The Chateau de Chantilly 10K follows the same route as the Half Marathon but only requires the participants to complete one loop. 10K is achieved when the Finish Line is crossed in front of the Castle itself.
The Half Marathon will see competitors undertake 2 laps of a spectator friendly almost entirely off road 10.5K circuit. 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 Chateau de Chantilly course offers the flattest of all the courses and the finishing straight, with the castle as a backdrop, leads all runners to the now famous finishing line banquet and a well deserved medal!
