The Elmhurst Triathlon Club was formed in 2007 as a recreational group for both new and veteran triathletes of all ages, interests and experience levels. We are a USAT recognized club based in the Elmhurst area but encourage and welcome members from all parts of the western suburbs and Chicago area.
Our goals are to encourage participation in the sport of triathlon and provide a supportive and friendly network of fellow athletes to train and race with.
We’ve started with a small but growing group and are looking forward to increasing our activity over the fall / winter with group workouts, club meetings and social gatherings, speakers and seminars.
Below is a partial list of some of
the upcoming Illinois. To find
