Where and when can I set up my tent? Personal tents and shelters can be set up on starting at 4PM on Friday, and should be removed by 4PM on Sunday.

WEATHER:
What's the weather like?
 The average High temperature for this weekend is 62*, and the average Low temperature is 41*, but the weather in December in Texas can be unpredictable: hot, cold, sunny, overcast, still, windy, and sometimes all of those within 24 hours. Because of the proximity of the lake, the course usually has a breeze and will feel cooler than the forecast indicates, especially at night. We recommend that you pack for all possibilities, and look for weather updates in the final pre-race email.
Under what circumstances might the race be cancelled? The race could be cancelled due to a severe weather event that causes dangerous conditions, or at the request of local authorities
