Right here. Right now. Commit to accomplishing your goal of becoming a triathlete this year! We've set your training calendar for you to test fitness and track results. Grab a friend and race side-by-side, no matter what your ability. There's never been a better way to become a triathlete or get in shape for your outdoor races.
Chicagoland participants will compete for both individual event prizes and an overall series Grand Prize! With these fun little competitions, the top performing male and female within each event’s swim, bike and run disciplines will earn one of many great prizes. Leaderboards will be set up in respective areas, allowing you to keep tabs on the competition.
Additionally, all participant names will be added into a final, end-of-season Grand Prize raffle. One female and one male name will be drawn from both the Open and Masters division rosters (four total prizes). Winning names will receive a complimentary sprint distance race registration into the 2013 Life Time Tri Chicago. Plus, the more you compete, the more chances you have to win. If you compete in three Indoor Tris, your name is added to the hat three times!
How your time is spent:
10 min pool swim

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:
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 visor. To participate, you must be 12 years of age or older.
