The City of Chicago will host the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final and World Championships September 15-20.
Chicago will welcome 150 of the world's top Olympic-distance triathletes as they compete for a world championship title less than a year prior to the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games. In addition to the elite races, the event features top-flight sprint and Olympic-distance races for age-group athletes, paratriathletes, juniors, under-23s, as well as an aquathlon to kick off the action. In all, nearly 8,000 amateur athletes will compete for world titles in the same epic venue as the world's best elite athletes.
The ITU World Triathlon Grand Final and World Championships are hosted by USA Triathlon, the National Governing Body for the sport of triathlon in the United States, and Lagardère Unlimited Events North America. Launched in 2009, the ITU World Triathlon Series is televised in more than 160 countries. Visit chicago.triathlon.org for more information.
