Come race in the Chicago Triathlon along the lakefront August 25-26 and stay (and carbo load) at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park!
The Chicago Triathlon is far from a one-size-fits-all event. Race weekend is composed of a variety of special programs and competitions, each designed to accommodate participants of every ability, interest level and goal.
In the spirit of providing a customized race experience, athletes now have the ability to decide how competitive they wish to be, who they start alongside, and/or when they start their respective journey.
Age Groups: All individuals are automatically placed in this category, unless choosing a different division during the registration process. Age groups are subdivided by gender and five-year age increments (e.g. 20-24, 24-29, 30-34, etc.). It is important to note that Age Groups are assigned based on athlete age as of December 31 of race year (thus no changes during the calendar year).
Friends & Family: This new, non-competitive division provides an opportunity for friends and family to enjoy the day together. Note: To help ensure athletes are both racked (in Transition) and start within proximity of peers, we encourage friends/family to register at the same time, as the start order is chronological by registration timestamp. Friends & Family participants will receive periodic support from event staff, coaches and officials. The Friends and Family group will start toward the end of their respective distances. There are also charity race options and options for kids.
The Chicago Triathlon kicks off in Grant Park in downtown Chicago. For a full schedule of events and to register for the Chicago Triathlon, go online to https://register.chronotrack.com/ r/27125?_ga=2.160504701.1779459086.1530816029-1692424843.1530816029 and follow the prompts.
