WAVE STARTS

First wave starts at 7 am at each location, with the exception of Burr Ridge (start time: 10 am). Subsequent waves launch every 20 minutes thereafter. You will indicate a preferred start time while registering, and also request to race alongside friends or family. Actual/confirmed start time will be emailed one week prior to the event.

TRAIN WITH US

Looking for some guidance? Jump in to our special eight-week training program held at Life Time Fitness Burr Ridge. This program combines the convenience of online coaching with the intimacy of small group training with a personal coach. Meet twice a week with Coach Angel, and follow a training program with your goals in mind. Contact aarflack@lifetimefitness.com for details.

EVENT SCORING

Results are scored according to your performance relative to everyone else. Total available points are based on the total number of participants in the event. For example, let's say there are 100 people in event. The athlete who swam the farthest in the pool receives 100 points. The second farthest swim receives 99 points and so on. Same for the bike and run. The three scores for each participant are totaled for an overall score. Scores (and distances) will be posted online and emailed following each event.

The Fastest Hour of Your Life!

Become a triathlete in 60 minutes. One hour, then BAM, you're a triathlete. It will happen so fast you won't know what hit you. The Life Time Indoor Triathlon is a fun challenge that appeals to everyone — from seasoned triathletes to first-timers — because you set your own pace. And all the action takes place in one convenient, weatherproof location — your local Life Time club.

Here’s how this one-hour race against the clock breaks down:

  • 10-minute swim in the lap pool
  • 30-minute bike ride in the Cycle Studio
  • 20-minute run on the treadmill

Performance is measured by distance covered in each of the three legs. The more distance you cover, the higher your score. Transition times are fixed at 10 minutes between the swim and bike and 5 minutes between bike and run. This is to ensure safe and courteous movement through the club. 

You will start in waves of 10 people every 20 minutes. Race with your friends, family or colleagues — time to catch up socially and physically!

All participants will receive a Life Time Indoor Tri participant T-shirt, race bib, and swim cap. To participate, you must be 12 years of age or older.
