Finish Festival

The race may be over when you cross the finish line, but the party is just getting started.

Celebrate the big finish at the Chicago Triathlon Finish Festival. Once crossing the Finish Line, all athletes will receive a finisher medal, a bottle of water, an ice cold bottle of Gatorade, a catered meal by Jewell Catering group and a complimentary beer (21+).

Spectators and the public alike are invited to the free Finish Festival, which will be bustling with athletes and their fans, sponsors, vendors, food vendors, and our community program partners. Additional food and drink will be available for purchase near the Athlete Food area.

Race results will be updated regularly online throughout the day, and at the Results Tent in the Finish Festival. You may access your results directly from your mobile phone using the following links:

Marathon Photos will provide race photography for purchase before, during and after the race. Be sure your race numbers (body marking, bike and bib numbers) are visible to the cameras at all times so you can be identified. Photos will be posted within 24 hours of the event.

Parents, please supervise your children at all times. The race site and course are busy and potentially dangerous areas. We recommend to leave pets at home. If there are any pets on site, we will ask to make sure they are leashed at all times.

This event requires more than 2,000 volunteers to dedicate their. time during the race weekend. Please remember to thank them as you come across their services! The event would not be possible without them. Volunteering is a great way to get a close-up and behind the scenes view of the event, so encourage your friends and family to join the fun by signing up here!  The Volunteer Tent is located at the northeast corner of Columbus and Balbo.

Lost items should be turned in or claimed at the Information Tent located at the southeast corner of Columbus and Balbo, or the Results Tent located on Columbus within the Finish Festival. Unclaimed items will be relocated to the Life Time office following the event and donated after 30 days to a local charity.

Bikes and equipment may be removed from the Transition area once all athletes in each race have finished the bike course. AFTER 2:00 PM TRANSITION WILL NO LONGER BE A SECURED ZONE. Remaining items will be discarded or donated.

Don’t forget to use the complimentary Trolley Shuttles, offering roundtrip service from the Finish Festival (at Balbo and Columbus) to the Transition Area (near Monroe and Lake Shore Drive). Shuttles will run continuously from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

Please be mindful of your valuables. We recommend you leave your valuables at home. This also pertains to gear check, as the race will not be liable for any lost or stolen items. Anything you take with you on the course must remain in your possession. With exception of dedicated aid stations, no garbage, clothing, etc. may be thrown on the course.
