10 reasons to race at Château de Chantilly in August 2022

We return to France to race yet again at Château de Chantilly. Why not voyage over the Channel and join us this August, we have 10 reasons which could convince you why this is one not to miss...

1. It's our 12th Anniversary

This year, we celebrate 12 years at Chantilly. It was love at first sight for Race Director Brian in 2009, and the Château simply had to be part of the Race series. 12 years later, we return again to commemorate this special anniversary and provide a spellbinding weekend of sport.

2. Race covid safe

One of Castle Race Series’ most important priorities for our participants and their spectators is safety. We have run 15 live events since September 2020 operating under Government guidelines. We will continue to do so for the protection and assurance of our participants and staff.

3. Regional Championship Races

The 1/2 iron distance, Le Gantelet, has been nominated as the Regional Championship for Hauts-de-France.  Hundreds of competitors will be fighting for the title so expect a bumper field on the start line and some of the best athletes the country has to offer.

4. Upgraded road surfaces on cycle routes

We have been busy in the off season and are working with the Highways departments in the Oise region to get the cycle route surfaces improved.

5. Upgraded running surfaces on run routes

Working with the Château estate we have continued with our programme of internal estate tracks and paths upgrading.

6. Kids races consolidated

This year, all junior distances will be held on the Saturday as opposed to both days. As a result of this, the juniors will benefit from more marshals on courses. Our junior courses at Chantilly are challenging routes but with the most scenic views, a rarity to find in junior triathlon. 


Expect live music, an increase in the finest local cuisine and retail that the region has to offer, and the return of our climbing wall/inflatables. Relax with a celebratory beverage! For those not competing, the buzzing festival atmosphere will keep you entertained as your loved ones race.

8. Spectators go free

Bringing friends and family? Then expect to not pay any spectator fees. Château de Chantilly is exclusively free to those attending our event. With 21 events to watch over the weekend, why not make it a holiday of it and bring the whole family!

9. Discounts on fantastic hotels

With some fantastic hotels in the area, why not take up one of our discounted offerings and do Chantilly with panache. Hotel Parc Chantilly are currently offering an exclusive discount, and are a five minute drive from the Château. All details on how to book can be found on your confirmation email.
