For the 6thyear in a row, Elim staff, Elim adults, Elim families, and Elim supporters are joining together to form “Elim Team TRI.”  Together we will SWIM 0.23 miles, BIKE 6.2 miles, and RUN/WALK 1.5 miles in the SuperSprint race at the Chicago Triathlon on Saturday, August 24, and together we will raise funds for HOPE Packs of school supplies for local kids in need.

The SuperSprint takes place on Saturday. August 24.

The SuperSprint takes place along the lakefront in beautiful downtown Chicago. The race takes off at Foster Beach and runs along Lake Shore Drive between Montrose and Foster Ave.

Nope!  You can choose to participate on an Elim Team TRI relay team!  A relay team can consist of two or three relay team members.  You can even choose to create a relay team with an Elim adult, who will walk/run/roll with you for the last leg of the race!

SWIM 0.23 miles

BIKE 6.2 miles

RUN/WALK 1.5 miles

You can participate as an individual or as a relay team member. You can choose to participate in one, two, or all three of the relay legs.

Note:  While Elim will be focusing its promotional efforts on the Saturday

SuperSprint event, folks are still welcome to compete in any of the other triathlon events, if they wish.  Registration for all other race distances must be done directly on the Chicago Triathlon website, however.  If you choose to go this route, please let us know that you registered in this way!

Simply go to and click on the Triathlon event link.

You will need the following information to register:

  • Participant Name, Birthdate, Gender

Elim will transfer your registration info and payment to the official Chicago Triathlon site.  You will not need to log-on to the Chicago Triathlon site yourself.  This process allows Elim Team TRI to be an official charity partner of the Chicago Triathlon and keeps Elim Team TRI registrations together.
