We are a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide an outlet for Chicago area triathletes to grow their athletic abilities and develop friendships through tri-athletic endeavors and meaningful social contact. Our members include novices looking for support before completing their first triathlon, Ironman veterans, and everyone in between. The club is run by the members; they organize all the activities, social events, clinics, and workouts. Our workout and clinics are geared to multisport athletes of all abilities. Joining the club and getting to know the other members is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of triathlons, meet others who are passionate about the sport, and improve your athletic abilities, all while having fun.

CTC At the Races
2020 Chicago Racing Series Cancelled
The Chicago Racing Series (CRS) are the best local races that CTC members do together as a team. Members can compete with each other at the races while volunteers coordinate logistics such as pre-race meals, meeting points, post-race festivities, and even supplies in case you forget anything! CRS winners will get trophies at our end of the year party!
UPDATE: Race Support has been canceled until Chicago enters Phase 5.
The scheduled 2020 CRS Races were: FFC Indoor Tri Series (February - April), Leon's, Pleasant Prairie, Steelhead 70.3, Door County, Wauconda Triathlon, Michigan Titanium, and the Chicago Triathlon. We also volunteer and support our racers at Ironman Wisconsin.
Please safe and healthy for a strong 2021 racing season.
