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
August Meeting: Heat Training, Hydration, and ElectrolytesJoin us at our monthly 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 meeting will be held at Goose Island Clybourn (1800 N Clybourn).
This month's topic is Heat Training, Hydration, and Electrolytes. Our speaker will be TriHarder multisport coach and former two-time CTC president, Dr. Matt Pahnke! Matt will discuss both the theory behind hydration needs in triathletes and how to build a personalized hydration strategy. Some of the key topics will include: heat acclimatization, fluid and sodium supplementation, hydration problems, and building a hydration strategy in training and racing. Matt focused on fluid and sodium balance in athletes for his PhD in exercise physiology, and conducted research at the Hawaii Ironman. He is also a USAT level 2 coach and has been certified since 2001!
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!
Members: RSVP here to let us know you're coming!
