Sounds like fun. I just registered. See you there!

Note: USAT discount rate is much indeed better than the ITU if you are staying at Hilton Chicago.

This sounds like a great race to participate in. I am doing my first Ironman late August (Louisville) and I am wondering if this race (Olympic) would derail or benefit my training. Does anyone have recommendations on whether it is wise to fit this race in 7-8 weeks before an Ironman?

Pablo,
I think this really depends on your IM goals for training and racing. Keep in mind during IM training you will have to hit a certain volume of training, with your biggest weeks being around 4-6 weeks out. It will also depend on your goals for racing in Chicago. I'm working it into my IM training plan for next year. I think it's definitely doable if you plan around it properly.

The age group race is scheduled for Sunday morning. The pro race is Sunday afternoon. Hoping to stay Sunday night. I booked directly w/the hotel (vs through the race site)- rates were the same and I was able to book for Sunday.

Alejandro - great suggestion about the hostel! HI Chicago is just a few blocks from the Hilton and Essex Inn. It looks like a group of 4 girls or guys can get a two bedroom suite with their own shared common area and bathroom. Free breakfast and access to a common kitchen is super convenient for race weekend.
