leons-bodyglove-grandprix.pngLeon's Triathlon, the world's fastest triathlon, added a new incentive to this year's event, with the introduction of the Body Glove SURGE GRAND PRIX. Scheduled to take place on June 1, 2014 at Wolf Lake Park in Hammond, IN, Leon's Triathlon is part of the Chicagoland Tri Series that includes the Transamerica Chicago Triathlon and the ITU World Triathlon Chicago. The Body Glove SURGE GRAND PRIX offers triathletes who compete in Leon's Triathlon and at least one other event in the Chicagoland Tri Series the opportunity to win cash and prizes totaling over $3,000.

"Chicago is tri country. The Chicagoland Tri Series is confirmation of the enthusiasm and commitment of Midwestern triathletes." said Leon Wolek, founder of Leon's Triathlon. "This year we made the competition even more interesting with the addition of the Body Glove SURGE GRAND PRIX. If you compete in Leon's and one or both of the other triathlon events in the Olympic distance, you can win big."

The prizes will be awarded based on the fastest times in Leon's Triathlon and one other event in the Chicagoland Tri Series. There will be awards for men and women for overall fastest times, as well as age group winners. Leon's Triathlon is known for being an innovator. It was the first triathlon to introduce team racing and offer a stand up paddleboard option instead of the swimming portion. The Body Glove SURGE GRAND PRIX only adds to the excitement of the series for participants and spectators.
