Welcome to the 2021 Chicago Triathlon Charity Program. We are so excited for the return of this amazing event and we cannot wait for you to be a part of it. Since its creation, the Chicago Triathlon has partnered with organizations throughout the Chicagoland area and beyond, in the pursuit of raising awareness and funding for meaningful causes that affect everyone around us.
Becoming a charity partner also comes with its perks. Each organization that enrolls in our charity program will receive a registration discount for every athlete that signs up under their charity code. Also, as your charity team grows, you will qualify for additional perks such as comp codes for coaches, social media highlights for your organization on our social media platforms, informative zoom calls with LT staff, and much more.
Dates: The Chicago Triathlon will take place Saturday, August 28 (SuperSprint and Kids Tri) and Sunday, August 29, 2021 (International and Sprint)
Discounts for Registration: Your charity will receive its own unique discount code valid for $10 off the registration fee for every athlete that signs up under your charity code. *Please continue reading this document for additional information on how the charity program works and what you need to do in order to secure your place as a valued charity partner.
