Elizabeth Brackett was a world champion triathlete, a dedicated teammate and most importantly, our friend. On Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 Elizabeth was doing her morning recovery ride along the lake front path and was involved in a bike accident. She passed away later that week surrounded by family and friends. She was 76. The entire Well-Fit community mourned the loss of our teammate and friend. Elizabeth was a dedicated athlete and a daily inspiration of what it takes to defy aging. She showed up to the gym ready to work, never made excuses and pushed to better herself every day. She stood on top of the podium so many times, showing us that age could not slow her down. She was a champion in every sense of the word and we miss her spirit here at Well-Fit.
In Elizabeth’s honor, Well-Fit athletes and friends will join together to compete in the Lake Zurich triathlon. We will once again collect donations in her name for the USAT Foundation, whose mission is to support and promote triathlon and open pathways to the sport to those whom it might not otherwise be possible. Suggested donation is $20. Every donor will receive a 2019 Elizabeth Brackett memorial T-shirt. If you have not signed up for the race yet, registration is still open.
