Parking

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 the handicapped.

COURSE AND EVENT DETAILS

THE SWIM

COURSE MAP

Olympic  = 1.5km          |          Sprint Triathlon = 750m         |          Tri it = 300m

A 1 (Sprint) or 2 (Olympic) triangular lap (clockwise) swim course will be in the warm, and comfortable setting of Lake Chaparral. Due to the number of athletes competing we will be starting from the South end of the beach area. The swim caps (provided in race package) must be worn throughout the entire swim course to ensure safety of all athletes during this time. YOU MUST START IN THE HEAT DESIGNATED TO YOU ABOVE IN THE ITINERARY (YOU WILL BE DESQUALIFIED IF YOU START IN THE WRONG HEAT, and this is your responsibility to know which heat is which). The course will be patrolled by the Lake Chaparral motorized boat, as well as lifeguard volunteers in rowboats. Athletes are asked that if they are feeling any trouble or difficulty during the swim portion to raise their hand and a volunteer medical staff will be there to assist you within seconds.

A 1 or 2 lap triangular (counter-clockwise) swim course. The swim caps (provided in race package) must be worn throughout the entire swim course to ensure safety of all athletes during this time. The volunteers/lifeguards will line the GPS measured course. The course will be patrolled by the motorized boat, as well as canoes and kayaks.

SWIM TRAINING

Lake Chaparral has granted athletes the opportunity for swim training the week leading up to the race.   Access will be available from Tuesday July 23rd until race day.   You must enter code 082018 at the gate, and have a spotter on land.   You must vacate the lake once done.   Please follow these rules to ensure we are allowed back.

Exit transition westbound on Chaparral Drive.  Follow Chaparral Drive around to 194th Ave.  Turn left (East) on 194th and follow to the bottom of the hill next to Chaparral Valley. Continue east along 194th to the 180 degree turnaround point.

Make the turnaround and return the way you came – up that nice hill!
Turn Right on Chaparral Blvd and follow straight until you get back to Chaparral Drive.
Left Turn to begin the next lap or to finish!

Please be mindful of local traffic as this is an open course. City police and volunteers will be at all major intersections. You are responsible for your own safety while out on the course so be cautious and be aware of your surroundings at all times. Remember to have fun on the course, and keep safety at the utmost priority.

TAKE CAUTION AND STAY TO TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD.
Police and volunteers will man the key intersections.

Riders must wear ANSI approved helmets that are fastened for the entire race.

  • Portable music players are not permitted.
  • The practice of drafting behind cyclists is illegal.
  • The City of Calgary Police Service will control traffic and monitor safety at all major intersections.

THE AQUABIKE

Don’t like Running?  We’ve added Aquabike to our 2020 event schedule!  You have the choice of a Sprint or Standard Distance event….same distances as the triathlon – without the run!

THE RUN

COURSE MAP

Olympic & Duathlon 1st Run=10.3km          |          Sprint & Duathlon 2nd Run = 5.5km          |          Tri it = 2km (in park)

The 1 (Sprint) or 2 (Olympic) lap course will wind in and around the Lake Chaparral Community. You will follow the bike course heading in the opposite direction!
YOU MUST STAY ON THE SIDEWALKS AT ALL TIME AND ONLY CROSS THE ROADWAYS WHERE VOLUNTEERS ARE DIRECTING YOU.
• When you are about 25 feet from the transition area you will enter the gates to Chaparral, where you will either run around the building and through transition to complete your second lap for Olympic athletes, or if you are finishing (Sprint course = 1 lap) you will head to the finish line gantry set up.

Here’s a detailed view of the park (great view for the Tri It Course)


THE TRANSITION

COURSE MAP

This is the area where everything takes place and in highly competitive races, the place where a race can be won or lost!
Please place your bike and equipment and, once settled, look around to ‘site’ your location. What are you next to? What does your towel look like? What rack/row/line are you in? A good idea is to set up your area, leaving transition and then walk towards your bike when coming from the lake.
*NOTE: Transition will remain open once the race starts, but please stay next to your bike to avoid collisions with athletes that are currently racing.
**NOTE: Please have only what you will be racing with placed by your bike. No large bags, buckets or bins are allowed next to your bike.
