2020 cbdMD Chicago Triathlon CANCELLED
To our valued cbdMD Chicago Triathlon family,
Let us start off by saying we sincerely hope you and your family are safe, healthy and well. These last few months have been trying for all of us. Our plans have been derailed and our training has likely been altered in some way or another along with our daily lives. We had just endured the Chicago winter and were getting ready to kick off another season when the pandemic hit. For some of us our training has taken a backseat as pools, gyms and the Lakefront remained closed; for others we have been able to bike and run more than ever. Regardless, we appreciate your patience as we too navigate the uncertainty surrounding the cbdMD Chicago Triathlon. As endurance athletes it is hard to sit still, and even harder to sit still in the face of uncertainty.
That being said, the health and safety of everyone involved in our event as well as the broader Chicago community has been our top priority. We have been working closely with local agencies over the last few weeks and months to determine the best path forward for this year’s 2020 cbdMD Chicago Triathlon.
Unfortunately, due to the significant impact COVID-19 continues to pose to our community and the recent mandate by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s cbdMD Chicago Triathlon scheduled to take place August 29-30, 2020.
We share your pain in not being able to gather our beloved triathlon community together on the shores of Lake Michigan this summer. Because of this unfortunate cancellation, we are offering the following options to all registered participants:
COMPLIMENTARY DEFERRAL to the 2021 cbdMD Chicago Triathlon on August 28-29, 2021 + complimentary access to our Virtual Duathlon and Triathlon.
DONATE your entry fee to Chicago Public Schools via the Life Time Foundation + complimentary access to our Virtual Duathlon and Triathlon. Your 100% tax-deductible donation will support Chicago Public Schools as they continue to safely provide meals to students during this time of crisis. Learn More.
GET A REFUND for your registration fee, minus processing fees.
Charity registrations: If your entry was acquired as part of an agreement with a charity partner, your registration will be subject to the cancellation resolution option as determined by the charity. Please reach out to the charity directly before taking any steps.
All decisions must be submitted before August 1, 2020, through your RunSignup registration.

We will miss you terribly this summer, but we wish you and your loved ones all the best as we all navigate these uncertain circumstances brought about by this pandemic. Together, we will rise above and come together again in celebration of our incredible Chicago Triathlon community – we look forward to racing along the Lakeshore, amidst the beautiful Chicago skyline once again.
Until then, stay healthy, safe and motivated. We hope you will join us for our Virtual Duathlon and Triathlon so we can continue to stay active and connected together as the resilient community of triathletes that we are.
Thank you for your continued support and stay well!
The cbdMD Chicago Triathlon Team
