The Life Time Kids Tri Chicago is the perfect launching pad for a youngster to break into the sport and the kick off event of the Transamerica Chicago Triathlon weekend. The swim takes place in Lake Michigan at Chicago's Foster Beach, including a shallow water start, parallel to the beach. The bike and run take place on closed park roadways and running paths all along Chicago's beautiful lakefront.
Life Time Kids Tri series consists of numerous youth triathlons nationwide and are designed to encourage a healthy way of life by way of fun physical activity. What better way to build confidence and encourage healthy competition than with a fun, safe introduction to the sport of triathlon!
Rivaling the largest youth triathlons nationwide, the Life Time Kids Tri Chicago attracts more than 1,000 youth athletes every year! The race is open to boys and girls 7-14 years old and offers both individual and relay team competition. There is an age Division separation for relays, so teams must consist of athletes within the same Division, Junior (7-10 years) or Senior (11-14 years).
Here is a glimpse of the fun and competition the youth triathletes have enjoyed in years past!
Life Time Kids Tri Chicago is excited to welcome a very special group of inspiring youth triathletes–our paratriathletes! For many years a dedicated, determined group of up and coming super stars gather on this very weekend to show the world just how it’s done! We would like to thank everyone involved in making this a truly successful event for our paratriathletes and look forward to another fantastic turn out in 2015!
