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 Monthly Meeting
June Meeting: Recovery Nutrition for Triathletes
Join us at our June meeting! Come for happy hour at 6pm to meet and mingle with other CTCers, followed by a 1-hour clinic starting at 7 pm. This month's topic is Bio-hacking Recovery and the Immune System For the Endurance Athlete and will be presented by Melissa Bowman, Chicago’s renowned Nutrition & Fitness Expert.
Staying healthy is critical to effective training. Research shows that high intensity exercise and endurance training temporarily weakens the immune system. Hard workouts can create an “open window” in your body’s defenses that may derail training programs and performance gains. Learn what foods and supplements can boost your immune system naturally, as well as enhance recovery to be ready for your next training session or race.
We'll have free beer from Goose Island, new & renewing members can pick up your CTC member gifts during the 6-7pm happy hour. We also sometimes have a raffle after the talk, so make sure you stay for the end!
You can also get some of those early season kinks worked out! TRIFACTIVE Sports Injury + Performance Clinic will have Expert Massage Therapist, Rachel, on-site from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM for complimentary 10-minute chair massages. Sign-up sheet will be available on first come, first served basis. Spots are limited.
CTC At the Races
2016 Chicago Racing Series
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!
IMPORTANT: In order to participate in the competition, you must sign up in the “Who’s Racing/Who’s Volunteering” page on the CTC web site ahead of time.
Add your name to the Race Calendar to let other members know what races you're doing, while also earning participation (Racing and Volunteering) points! If you earn enough RAV points throughout the year, you can also win a prize at the end of the year, regardless on how well you do at the races!
Members earn 3 RAV points for racing in CRS races or 1 RAV point for non-CRS races. Members also earn 3-4 RAV points for volunteering in our Volunteer Races or 1 RAV point for volunteering in CRS races.
Are you doing a race that's not already on the calendar? Email Racing Committee at email@example.com with the name, date, distance, and link for the race you're doing, and they'll add it! Triathlons & Multisport races only, please!
