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.
Over 3200 participants took part in the hugely successful 2016 event. As we look forward to 2017, the event will continue to include a whole spectrum of distances, with races for children aged eight and up to the middle-distance race, Le Gantelet, first introduced at Château de Chantilly in 2013.
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. Triathletes will transition within the Terrasse des Connétables and set off into a fast 20km or 45km cycle circuit around the Forêt de Chantilly. After entering T2, competitors will run the surrounding woodlands, the world famous race course “LHippodrome” and Chateau gardens finishing within sight of the beautiful Chateau.
