Chicago’s South Shore Triathlon This Weekend
South Shore Triathlon, part of the RAM Racing Series, to take place this Saturday 28 July in Chicago.
Chicago’s South Shore Triathlon (SST) is the city’s only Triathlon that shuts down all Northbound Lake Shore Drive between 31st and 71st Street and is one of just two opportunities all year for Chicago’s amateur athletes to compete with elite caliber triathletes in the city. SST is the only chance for them to bike closed Northbound Lake Shore Drive between 31s t and 71st Street. Participants will swim a new, deeper Lake Michigan course and run through the South Side’s Washington Park, listed in National Register of Historic Places.
The USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned event features Sprint, Aquabike and Kids distances, including Athena and Clydesdale divisions; directed by RAM’s USAT Certified Race Director: Brandon Presern.
SST’s goodie bag is a Chicago-themed technical cycling jersey, designed by RAM’s award winning race swag team. Post-race participants can bask in the sun and relax in our beer garden. A portion of the proceeds benefit Tri-Masters, the race’s official charity partner.
Tri-Masters is a not-for-profit organization that empowers at-risk children via triathlon in order to teach life lessons. As our youth athletes learn to swim, bike and run, they gain skills in goal-setting, conflict resolution, respect, responsibility, self-discipline and perseverance.
