Lake Chaparral Community Centre
Follow this map link to the race site!
There is limited parking within the community of Lake Chaparral, and the resident’s Board of Director’s has requested that we have everyone participating in the event park along the cross streets and DO NOT PARK along the “main drag – Chaparral Drive” of the community leading into the lake. This will ease the congestion around the transition area, and make everyone’s event much more enjoyable. We respectfully ask that you obey this rule, and hope it doesn’t cause any inconvenience. We have reserved some handicapped parking within the parking lot of the lake should this be required, however this will only be allowed for thehandicapped.
No pre-race pickup required
