Castle Triathlon Series

Formed in 2009, the Castle Triathlon Series has swiftly established itself as the UKs largest triathlon series.

From Lough Cutra to Chantilly and Castles Howard, Cholmondeley and Hever, were immensely proud of the iconic backdrops to each Castle Triathlon Series race and the friendly festival atmosphere produced at every event.

Our first race of the season sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds and surrounding area of stunning South Galway. Whats more, the race coincides with a Bank Holiday in the UK and it is also the first weekend of the UK school half term, making it an ideal break for sporty families.

All of the races at Lough Cutra Castle kick-off with a stunning open-water swim in the lake, transitioning into a bike route which circumnavigates Lough Cutra itself. The half iron Gauntlet cycle takes in the beautiful Burren national park. The event offers not only a chance to race but a festival atmosphere with live music, dancing, childrens entertainment, retailers and food.

Lough Cutra 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.

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 Chteau de Chantilly in 2013.

Chantilly provides a fantastic and challenging race, with the 2.5km Grand Canal overlooked by the Chteau and its gardens hosting the open-water swim. Triathletes will transition within the Terrasse des Conntables and set off into a fast 20km or 45km cycle circuit around the Fort 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.
