The Castle Series makes its yearly pilgrimage over the English Channel in August for, what is usually our sixth race of the series, but in 2020, will be our first physical race of the season.
Set over the UK bank holiday weekend, 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.
Chantilly provides a fantastic and challenging race, with the 2.5km Grand Canal overlooked by the Château and its gardens, hosting the open-water swim. Multi discipline athletes transition within the Terrasse des Connétables after which cyclists set off into a fast 20km or 45km bike route around the Forêt de Chantilly. Runners enjoy the surrounding woodlands, the world famous race course “L’Hippodrome” and Chateau gardens finishing within sight of the stunning Chateau.
