Transamerica Chicago Triathlon
  • Address: Chicago, IL
  • Dates: August 27, 2017
  • For more than 30 years, triathletes have gathered on the shores of Lake Michigan for one of the largest triathlons in the world. The Transamerica Chicago Triathlon is an action-packed tour through one of America's signature metropolises. 

    For professionals, amateurs and kids alike, there's nothing better than racing along Lake Michigan and throughout downtown Chicago. Competitors can race as individuals, as part of a relay or by teaming up with one of the official charity partners. 

    Race weekend consists of five stand-alone triathlons, including the Life Time Kids Tri Chicago, SuperSprint and the Transamerica Chicago Triathlon sprint, international and pro races. The Triple Challenge is the sixth event, consisting of three races unto itself. 

    The Course

    The Transamerica Chicago Triathlon offers sprint and international distance courses beginning at Monroe Harbor, looping along Lake Shore Drive and culminating with a rousing run down Columbus Drive.
