Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created this inaugural virtual event in place of the previously scheduled 2020 cbdMD Chicago Triathlon.
Between August 22 – August 30, enjoy the convenience of competing anywhere, anytime. Whether you decide to finish all three legs at one time, or break up each leg individually over the week, this virtual event allows you to compete at your own pace and convenience.
Who Can Participate?
This event will be open to all 2020 cbdMD Chicago Triathlon registrants at no cost*, and to past registrants and the general public for a fee. Whether you are a seasoned triathlon veteran or brand new to the sport, anyone can participate — so invite your friends and family to compete against you!
You can “tri” as hard or as easy as you want. Use your favorite device to track your performance, and check our leaderboard daily to see where you stack up against the competition.
*2020 registrants who choose to receive an entry fee refund due to the cancellation will not receive complimentary access to the Virtual Duathlon and Triathlon.
