3rd time I participate to this race...
Le triathlon est parfait mais la qualité de l'eau surement pas!
I am chocked to allow people to swim in this conditions.
I have done a couple of tri's at Hever Castle before and have been impressed with the course and organisation. The setting of the Chateau Chantilly tri was amazing. The organisation and logisitcs were very good. However, the swim in the lake was crowded, muddy, and full of weeds. I didn't enjoy the swim at all. There were too many in the wave and I felt the lake was too shallow. For about 25% of the 1.9km course I was swimming through weeds. I will definietly do another Castle series tri but probably not at Chantilly. Every other aspect of the race was very good including the great marshalling and stewarding of the road course.
I have done the Château de Chantilly Triathlon twice I had done my first Château de Chantilly Triathlon in 2016 when I did all five of the Castle Triathlon Series events. Out of all five Château de Chantilly Triathlon Had to be the best.
A lovely area and stunning backdrop to this triathlon. The event was well organised and staff and helpers were friendly and informative.
31 years ago, almost to the day (give or take a few days), I was sat in a Weymouth cinema watching a James Bond film – and that film (A View To A Kill) featured a spectacular and picturesque location now known to me as the Chateau De Chantilly. Fast forward those 31 years and I am transported to that incredibly picturesque location in person. I’m there to take on Le Gantelet – my first attempt at middle distance triathlon – the 4th event in the Castle Triathlon series for 2016.
Partipated twice. Always a great experience. Top event in France.
Just completed my first Chantilly triathlon - and I will be going back next year. The race was superbly organised with marshalls clearly distinguishable by their T-shirts. The Super sprint was a bit longer than advertised (cycle 23k not 20K) but the scenery made it worthwhile. Good water/feed stations in the cycle and the run and plenty of food and drink at the end. The finish round the fountain meant that everyone had a spectacular finish.
Very nice race (swim & run)
Briefing outside water, so we had very few minutes to swim before the start.
Nice Race in a beautiful place
Le seul défaut, ne pas numéroter les places dans le parc à vélo
Une belle aventure pour ce premier triathlon en famille !
Pro : the place is nice, the volunteers are so helpful (many thanks to them), lots of
- Spots in transition zone shall be defined and indentified for each competitors instead of free and random placement. This would give more equality and will simplify logistics and organization to all the competitors.
This is my second Castle trialthlon. After Castle Howard i had high expectations. Once again the setting was incredible and the marshalling of the bike rides were highlights.
Gauntlet 2016 competitor....
This race is held in stunning surroundings and yet again the great Castle Triathlon organisation and welcome was very evident. There is great support for the races and the crowds are fanyastic at cheering you all around the course. The swim is very good at allowing spectators to follow you virtually around the swim course, and it is a very pleasent place to swim. The bike course features in the main very good roads and very good marshal and police junction control, it takes in some lovely countryside as well which is always a bonus. The run is a mainly flat run, with a mixture of shaded woods and then open sections around the horse racecourse. Again fantastic support all around the run which is totally off road, though good quality paths and trails.
I have nothing bad to say about this event!! Off the back of it I would definitely race it again. Great course that was spot on for my strengths, run course mostly through a wood so well shaded from the heat. Frequent aid stations on both the bike and run. The course was well sign posted and the marshalls throughout were brilliant!!!!
