The 36th annual Chicago Triathlon, the largest swim-bike-run event in the world, will be held in Grant Park and throughout the downtown area on Sunday, August 26.
Due to a conflict between a car and cyclist on Lake Shore Drive last year, the public safety professionals of the City are no longer permitting cones as separation on Lake Shore Drive.
For the bike portion of this year’s Triathlon, all southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive will be closed to traffic on race day, Sunday, August 26, between 5:00 AM and 12:00 PM, from Hollywood Ave to Randolph St.
Life Time Fitness organizes the triathlon each year, and has worked with the relevant City agencies and impacted Aldermanic offices to message this closure.
