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 the event much more enjoyable for all. 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 handicapped persons.

COURSE AND EVENT DETAILS

THE SWIM 

– COURSE MAP

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

A 1 (Sprint) or 2 (Standard) triangular lap (clockwise) swim course will be in the warm, and comfortable setting of Lake Chaparral.  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 (YOU WILL BE DiSQUALIFIED IF YOU START IN THE WRONG HEAT). 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.

SWIM TRAINING

TBD

THE BIKE

-Course Map

Exit transition Westbound on Chaparral Drive. Follow Chaparral Dr SE around to 194th Ave. Turn Left (East) on 194th and follow to the bottom of the hill next to Chaparral Valley.  Continue east and then turn right into the new community of Wolf Willow.  Follow the loop through the community 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 keep in mind that the course will be open to vehicle traffic, and you are to treat this event as any other training ride and be very road wise while on the course. We will have volunteers as well as City of Calgary Police to stop traffic when athletes are approaching, but remember you are responsible for your own safety while out on the course.
No IPODS/MP3 Players allowed.  IPOD/MP3 Player = Automatic disqualification !!

THE RUN

-Standard Distance Course Map
-Sprint Distance Course Map-Tri it Distance Course Map

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!
Tri it Athletes will complete their loops within the park.
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.

THE TRANSITION

The area where everything takes place and in competitive events, the place where a race can be won or lost!  In our event, usually a crazy spot as many people don’t know where to find their equipment during the event.

Please place your bike and equipment and then look around to ‘site’ your location—what are you next to, what does your towel look like, what rack are you in, etc.  When set up, leave transition and walk towards your bike when coming from the pool.
