Welcome to the 37th Annual Chicago Triathlon!

Nearly 10,000 triathletes will soon descend upon Chicago for one of the world’s greatest sporting events. Founded in 1983, this historic event has been innovating the triathlon space since inception, and 2019 is no exception. Continuing on last year’s positive trend, this year’s event will feature:

  • 100% Traffic-Free Bike Courses! All races feature 100% traffic-free Bike Courses. Sunday’s events again utilize all southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive. The same “stay left, pass right” rules apply.
  • A New Finish Experience!  Life Time is proud to unveil an innovative (and massive) finish experience for all Sunday race participants.
  • New Finisher Medal Sculpture!  The huge, 3.5” Chicago Tri finisher medals can be assembled to create a unique, silver-plated, 9.4” tall water bottle display sculpture. Details here. Visit us at the Expo to claim your bling.

Before the big weekend is finally here, be sure to download the 2019 Athlete Guide. This 50+ page info source contains schedules, maps, race logistics and everything else guaranteed to help you find success over the weekend.
