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 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.
Every participant gets some great gear, including a custom finisher medal, race T-shirt, swim cap, bib number, and more. Post-race snacks and refreshments will be provided. Relays are not allowed. All finishers will receive awards, and there will be lots of giveaways and tons of fun after the race.

Our course is wheelchair friendly, and we gladly welcome para-athletes to participate.
The Kid’s Tri is comprised of young athletes with varying athletic abilities, interest levels, and goals when it comes to triathlon.
In the spirit of providing a customized race experience, athletes now have the ability to decide how competitive they wish to be, who they start alongside, and/or when they start their respective journey.
Life Time Kids Tri Chicago
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).
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!
