Welcome to Tri Town! Make no mistake, the Second City may be the nation’s 3rd largest city, but Chicago stands proudly as the epicenter of the multisport movement. Since 1983, the Chicago Triathlon has welcomed more than 250,000 participants across the finish line. By our count, 40% of these finishers were first-timers, earning the coveted title of “triathlete” right here in our backyard. In 2016, we plan to add more than 2,500 newbies to that count.

As you journey through the Expo this weekend, as you rack your bike in Transition and as your toe the line at the Swim Start, know that you are an integral part of a 34 year tradition in this city. Your commitment and dedication to this sport is what defines the grit and strength of this incredible city. Chi-Town is Tri-Town. Make sure to check out the 2016 Athlete Guide for detailed schedules, course information and more.
