Post Race

Lunch and awards will be immediately following the race and will be held in the park’s picnic shelter at the top of the hill. You can either leave your cars parked and walk up the stairs (across the road from the playground) or you can drive up to the top by following the shoreline past the playground until the road splits. Stay to the left and head up the hill. At the top of the hill (skip the first left partway up the hill) there is an entrance to a circular drive for the shelter area with limited parking available. There is also a restroom that will be open all day in addition to the portable toilet at the bottom of the stairs.
