Welcome to the brand new Chicagoland Tri Series!
The Chicagoland Tri Series was created as a tool to better engage and reward the greater Chicago triathlon community.
Chicago hosts one of the largest, and oldest triathlon markets in the country. We believe that creating community among athletes AND fellow race directors is important to the future of our sport. We love triathlon, and want to do our part to ensure a strong local presence in the sport.
How Does It Work?
The Chicagoland Tri Series rewards triathletes who participate in both Leon’s Triathlon and the Life Time Tri Chicago during the 2014 season. There is no fee to enroll in the series competition, although participants must register for each event (individually) as usual.
Individual’s finish times will be combined and tabulated to create an overall series score. Top performing scores in all male and female age groups will earn special awards. The series includes both individual and team performances.
What About the Average Joes?
The Chicagoland Tri Series is much more than a platform for the athletically-gifted. The series also aims to appreciate those who simply enroll in both events. Anyone who opts-in to the program and qualifies will be invited to a season-ending Chicagoland Tri Series Athlete Party – a first of its kind celebration of all things triathlon. Event date and details are forthcoming.
How Do I Qualify?
Simple. To qualify you must be officially registered for both 2014 races. There is no true deadline to register, although this is obviously a time-sensitive program. Triathletes who plan to participate simply opt-in through a registration portal on this site. Anyone who races Leon’s Tri can opt-in to the series between now and August 24 (date of the 2014 Chicago Triathlon). Race staff from each event will ensure you are indeed registered for their respective event.
What Can I Expect?
As a result of the new partnership, a variety of exciting new race enhancements will be incorporated into both events! The two events will continue to be produced independently, although expect to see some interesting cross-promotion at each race, including:
- Life Time will host a branded ‘Speed Trap’ activation area at Leon’s Triathlon.
- Leon’s widely-successful Team Challenge concept will again be included at the 2014 Chicago Tri.
- Individual award winners will earn a variety of incredible prizes, including wetsuits, shoes, tri apparel and a variety of other sponsor entitlements and swag. Awards will be published when finalized.
- The end of season Athlete Party will be the hottest ticket in Triathlon town!
- Plus, lots of other surprises in store!
