Chateau de Chantilly Triathlon

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2019

Update: Chateau de Chantilly Water Test

Having taken a new water test at the Grand Canal, we are pleased to confirm that the test has passed all safety tests relating to the swim at Chateau de Chantilly Triathlon 2019.

Ahead of the event, we advised adult triathletes of a test which fell outside the recommended safety parameters expected for open water swimming, which had been taken after two days of heavy rain, and cancelled the swim for all junior athletes.

Although we were confident that the good weather and flow rate of the river meant that the water test was an anomaly, we took the above course of action to keep athletes informed and protect our junior athletes.

We are pleased to confirm that the water passed the latest test, and we’re also pleased that so many of you were able to swim over the weekend.

Car Parking and Arrival

Parking for this event will be at the Hippodrome de Chantilly Race Course. As you approach the venue please look out for Triathlon Car Park signs. There is no charge to park your car. Please allow for a 15/20 minute walk to the Chateau entrance where you will need to present your competitor confirmation email and  Event Spectator tickets for any supporters.
