  • Did the event in 2018

    This is a great triathlon for a beginner. It is based in a big grassy park where there is cheap all day parking, an event village and toilets and showers. The swim and T1 are a 10 minute walk away at Nantwich open air brine pool. The swim and race briefing were well-managed and there was no need for flip-flops because there was matting between the swim and T1. It was a sunny day and the open air pool was a bonus. I'd been for a recce swim the week before and the water had seemed colder than it did on the day, but the recce swim prompted me to get my head and shoulders under the water before I was counted off to start.The bike leg was on mainly quiet lanes and was well-marshalled. The route was gently undulating and a race car drove around the route throughout the event. Arrival into T2 was easy and good for supporters to get close. Water was available straight out of T2 and at the start of every lap of the run. I'm not usually keen on running on grass, but the grass in Bariny Park was flat and even and I was fine in road running shoes. The run is 4 laps and goes right through the event village and the atmosphere created by the picnicking spectators. I'd recommend this triathlon to first timers, and to anyone keen on an open air pool. The pool was a stand-out feature for me, as was the, as yet unmentioned, post race massage.
  • Did the event in 2018

    First race I've done for a couple of years and this one seemed perfect, an outdoor pool , fast flat course through Cheshire plains and a grassy run. I would do this again, nice little tri
  • Did the event in 2016

  • Did the event in 2018

    I had done the spring Cheshire Triathlon in May, and the course for this event was the same. I really enjoyed it again, not least for the location, and the facilities.
    The organisation was really good, and the Nantwich brine pool is fantastic. I knew I would find the water quite cold, so I had a pre-swim cold shower on the poolside- this took my breath away but made the pool water feel warm. The bike course is on quiet lanes and there were plenty of marshals and signs. As the run is 4 laps of the park where car parking and supporters are all gathered, you end the NW Triathlon surrounded by support, buoyant music, and commentary., and it’s also possible to end the event with a post-race picnic. I think it’s a very good first triathlon, and a good one for people who want to swim outside in an open air pool.
  • Did the event in 2018

    My first tri. Generally v good. Lots of good info online beforehand etc. Course was pretty good.

    Was on poolside in time for race brief but it didn’t happen in time for my start time. T1 was a little cramped. Results took ages to be posted online.

    Otherwise, very easy to participate. I’ll be back.

  • Did the event in 2017

    My first triathlon and an excellent event in every area, but where were the toilets at the start/finish?

Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon

The Cholmondeley event attracts over 1600 competitors to the beautiful countryside of Cheshire, offering the quintessential Castle Triathlon Series experience of competitive and fun racing, an epic castle backdrop and a stunning rural location.

All races at the 200-year-old Cholmondeley Castle start by launching into an open-water swim in Deer Park Mere Lake, transitioning on to a bike route that circumnavigates Bickerton Hill, which is the southern most tip of the Peckforton Hlls. There will be one cycle lap for the Super Sprint and two laps for both the Sprint Plus and Olympic distances.

The run passes through the estate grounds, which date back to the 12th Century, and has one lap for the Super Sprint and two laps for the Sprint Plus and Olympic races. Triathletes will finish their Cholmondeley race experience by sprinting down the main lawn to the finish line with Cholmondeley Castle as a fitting backdrop.

The Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon takes place in the beautiful grounds of Cholmondeley Castle, where the Cholmondeley family have resided since the Norman era of the 12th Century. The estate features extensive parkland covering 500 acres including two lakes, the larger of which, Deer Park Mere, is the setting for the open-water swim section of the triathlon.

To the south of Cholmondeley Castle, Tower Hill is the highest point of the run section, where athletes will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Beeston and Peckforton Hills, which they will have just covered on the undulating bike section, with the Welsh Hills looming in the distance.

  • Did the event in 2018

    This was our first triathlon, we entered for the Guantlet, the half ironman distance. Overall, this has to be one of the best experiences of my life. The day was hot but the feed stations etc. were all good. It was a great challenge and one I am pleased to have completed and now I am up for more. There is only one thing which has been on my mind since the race was the A road used for a large portion of the ride (just under a third). We prepared ourselves by reading the course breakdown in great detail on multiple occasions. The cycle route for the Guantlet riders was a 3 loop course, however, 30km of the 96km ride was on one of the busiest A roads I have cycled on in my life, living in London I am no stranger to traffic. 10km of the circuit (30km total) was on a truly frightening road. I experienced several missed calls myself and witness multiple others. I was shocked to say the least and it was a scary thought knowing I had to hit that road two more times. At least 5 km of it was badly maintained with potholes etc. The briefing and route card did say it was a busy road but if I was go for a sunday ride, I would never choose that road, and I imagine most locals don't cycle it. Much of the road markings were solid lines for both sides of the road, this should make for some sensible driving and caustious (albiet illegal) overtaking of cyclists, nothing further from the truth could be true. If the local council will not allow for the road to be closed for the event (which I can understand) the route therefore needs to be addressed by the organisers. I am honestlysurprised I did not hear of or see any serious accidents. I totally understand that sections of the race might need to hit busy road, but a serious effort needs to be made to try avoid it at all costs. 30km on that road - I did not feel safe and was relieved when we finished the ride. I am not one to leave reviews normally, but I had to get that off my chest. I would like to highlight that this really was one of the best things I have ever done, and it has not put me off entering for another half iron or a castle series tri. I do feel that the cycle route needs to be reviewed though, for a duty of care and safety perspective. I think most competitors would be happy to do 4 loops of a shorter circuit if it means avoiding that road. The rest of the route was well marshalled and I certainly felt safe.Thanks to anyone who does read this.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is the first year i have completed this event (The Gauntlet) and i must say, i thoroughly enjoyed it.Lovely venue, beautiful countryside, support from the locals/ spectators was great.Well thought out course, overall i thought it was a pretty seamless event from regristration through to completion. Thanks Castle Tri series for a great day!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Fantastic, friendly and well organised race.  Camping next to the start line can't be beaten. First time at a Gauntlet, but the friendliness of the other competitors and marshalls and well stocked feed stations made it an awesome day in the sunshine. The choir at the top of the climb on the bike route was a nice touch!  God job as always Castle Series team.

Transition very close to lake. Sells out quickly as lots of NW club members enter. Novice friendly would be a good intro to first open water tri.

  • Did the Sprint & Sprint Relay in 2018

    This was my first triathlon race and i will definitely be entering future tri's! The pre race information was top notch and helped me to get through the event without a hitch. Only thing I wasn't warned about were the race number tattoos.... It was horrid to remove from my leg hair and i resulted in clipping the leg hair off to remove haha! :) A small price to pay for an epic race! Look forward to booking my next race with the let's do this team! Hurrah!
  • Did the event in 2018

    I'd entered this as my first middle distance as I'd enjoyed the South Coast event done by UK tri last year.

    Early registration was opened up a few days before, so I was able to pick up my number the day before, it was still available on the day though. Parking is available nearby in town, though the car park we used was filling up early.
    The bike/transition area was quite big, at least for the early mid distance wave. It's really good to have toilets in the transition area.

    The swim was good, a very wide start area, so not too much of a washing machine start (though the later olympic start looked busier). The two lap route was clearly marked.

    Transition was a short walk on a mat to the bikes, and out through a gate, past some houses and onto a main road. On the whole, the road wasn't too busy, the route was very well signposted and there were marshals at the junctions (I did see a motorbike marshal come past as well). On the second lap there is a feed station with drinks, energy bars, gels, and fresh water bottles.

    The course was undulating, with only a couple of short steepish climbs. There were some quite good straights in parts, but the last 10k or so on both laps was into a headwind and hard.

    Back in transition, you leave through a different gate and out onto the run course. The profile said that this was flat, but there is a rise across an old railway bridge which hurt every time. You initally go out along a road to a turn point, come back and then turn alongside the lake through the woods before going through the transition point. There is a feed station at the turn point with drinks and energy bars, and wonderful encouraging marshals.

    There weren't too many people around by the time we finished, but those who were there were wonderfully encouraging, and there was quite a bit of camaraderie between those at the back, encouraging each other.

    It was a tough day out, and on the whole I enjoyed the event. I'm not sure if I could hack another middle distance, but will do more olympic distances. On the whole, I thought it was well organised by UK triathlon.

    They had run out of my size of T shirt by the end , but made a note of my number to send it onto me (I need to chase them up about this).

  • Did the event in 2018

    I got there at least an hour and half before my start and was glad because I had to try four different car parks and in the end parked in a lay by and walked back.
    First one I’ve done here and enjoyed it but would have liked some mile markers on both the bike and run as there were none.

    Organiser replied:
    Hi Sally, thank you for your comments, we really do appreciate them, we have had some fantastic commetns about the race and some good constructive criticism. We have taken everything on board, esepecially the parking for next year. As for the markers, because the bike course has two laps (middle distance) and a different course (Sprint and Super Sprint) then it is very difficult to put markers out. Thats the same with the run course being multi lapped. So to sumerise, yes we will improve the parking for 2019, but unfortunely we won't be able to put out markers or the two courses. Once again, thank you for your comments and we hope to see you back again next year. Keith (Race Director)
