Race Day Race Site Access

It is important that participants understand the rules pertaining to park access on race day. This rule will affect spectators.

Because the bike course takes place on the main park road, ALL access to the park will be stopped at 8:45 am.

This means that anyone arriving at Sandling Beach after 8:45 am will not be allowed to enter the park - even walking. It would create a dangerous situation for spectators to be walking along the main park road where the bike race is taking place - dangerous for spectators and dangerous for participants.

We will reiterate this rule multiple times leading up to the race, so there will be no misunderstanding on race day. Wake County deputies will be stationed at the entrance and will be turning away anyone attempting to enter the park after 8:45 - NO EXCEPTIONS.
