The deadline for placing your uniform order is THIS SUNDAY, July 6th if we want them to come in for the Chicago Tri. If you're interested in sporting CTC colors by the end of the season, please place your order on time so that we don't have to delay the order and risk them coming too late! See this forum post for more details.
August 6 Monthly Meeting: Ironman Panel
Join us for our next meeting Wednesday, August 6 at Goose Island Wrigleyville. Come for happy hour at 6pm to meet and mingle with other CTCers, followed by a 1-hour clinic starting at 7 pm. For August, we will have a panel of experienced CTC Ironmen will answer frequently asked questions about the decision to do an Ironman as well as experiences in training and racing.
If you've done an Ironman and would like to share your experiences, volunteer on the panel by contacting Ruth Buffalo. See our Facebook Event for more info!
The Chicago Racing Series (CRS) Competition has begun!! Remember that to be eligible for the CRS as well as RAV points, you must sign up on the “Who’s racing / Who’s volunteering” page on the CTC web site. You’re only eligible for points if you’ve signed up ahead of time. So sign up now if you’re racing or volunteering! CRS points will be updated throughout the season, so check back here as the season progresses, to see your standing in the competition!
If you are doing a race that isn't already on our Race Calendar, email email@example.com with the date, distance, and website of your race, and we'll add it. This is a great tool to network with other CTC members who are doing the same races. Members are encouraged to coordinate pre- and post-race meetups for non-CRS races. In order to make it for others to network with you, please make sure your Member Profile is up to date with a current email and/or phone number. You also earn 1 RAV point for participating in non-CRS races.
Please visit our Group Workouts Page to see what we have lined up for this year. You may also arrange group workouts via the Member Forum or visit our Sponsors for alternate classes using your CTC discount! Please note, our sponsors do check for CTC membership prior to honoring our discounts.
