Chicago Tri Club

Swim. Bike. Run. Play. 


The Chicago Tri Club supports the Chicago area triathlon community by organizing volunteers for races and triathlon related events in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. We also encourage and support our members in working with other organizations promoting sports and fitness.


As part of the Racing and Volunteering (RAV) program, CTC members earn points for volunteering at races and other events.  Members earn 1 RAV point for volunteering at CRS Races to support our fellow club members.  If you volunteer at a CRSrace, register for the race as a volunteer to add yourself to the list.

CTC also selects Volunteer Focus Races for the Club to support as a group. These focus races earn 3-4 RAV points vs. the normal 1 RAV point for volunteering. For these events, members should add their name to the volunteer list prior to the race, and our volunteer coordinator will contact you with further information. For all other races, members should volunteer directly through the race’s web site or race director.

The Volunteer Focus Races for 2016 are as follows:
June 4: Leon's (3 points)
June 25: Pleasant Prairie (3 points)
August 26
: Life Time Kids Triathlon (3 points)
September 10: Ironman Wisconsin Cross Plains aid station (4 points)


In addition to volunteering at races, CTC encourages our members to give back to the community by supporting, through CTC or on an individual basis, other organizations that promote health and fitness. Of particular interest are those organizations which encourage youth participation in the sport of triathlon.

Below is a list of organizations we believe can benefit from the knowledge, experience, and resources, of CTC and our members. These organizations should be considered by members who are looking to donate time or financial support to worthy causes.


Tri-Masters is a not-for-profit organization that empowers at-risk children via triathlon in order to teach life lessons. As their youth athletes learn to swim, bike and run, they gain skills in goal-setting, conflict resolution, respect, responsibility, self-discipline and perseverance.


Dare2Tri is an organization that works to positively impact the lives of athletes with physical disabilities or visual impairments by providing opportunities to develop their skills in the sport of Paratriathlon while inspiring the community at large.

    CTC Volunteers:  Camp with us at Blue Mounds during IMOO weekend!  

    CTC rents campsites for our Ironman Wisconsin volunteers for IMOO weekend. This is another fun weekend of camping, biking (or trail running) in the area, and of course supporting fellow club members doing the Ironman! We usually have a group ride Saturday morning with a potluck bonfire Saturday night where we eat camp food and chill around the fire, resting up for a full day of volunteering on Sunday!

    Two of our campsites are reserved for Friday & Saturday night only. The other two sites are reserved for Sunday night as well, for those that want to stay until Monday for early IMOO registration.

    Members are allowed to bring one guest, but please RSVP for the guest so that the campsite does not get overcrowded.  If there is additional space closer to camping time, we may allow for more guests, but CTC members are first priority!
