**Park roads will be closed until last biker is off the course!
IMPORTANT: Roads on race day will close promptly at 6:30am. We open the gates at 5:00am and encourage all athletes to arrive by 5:30am to have enough time to park, receive timing chip, and set up their transition area.
All athletes, volunteers, spectators, kids run participants, sponsors, vendors, family, and friends need to be off the road and parked by 6:15am (or earlier!) before Smithville Lake Parks and Recreation closes the roads at 6:30am. There is nowhere nearby to park after the roads close!
Roads will reopen once the last biker has finished the bike portion of the race (approximately 9:45am).
Our priority is the safety of everyone at the race. Thank you!
