In doing so, there is limited parking near the event venue so we can only permit one vehicle per participant. If, however, you have a need to bring multiple vehicles the day of the event we will do our best to accommodate. Simply send an email to [email protected] so we may discuss your situation. Lake Wildwood is a private gated community so unregistered vehicles will not be permitted access. WetsuitsIf lake water temperatures are below 78 degrees (F) you may wear a wetsuit for the swim portion, otherwise, if water temperature is over 78 degrees (F), you may choose to wear a wetsuit, but you will be ineligible for awards.Access To Race SiteBecause Lake Wildwood is a gated community, participants are unable to access the race site prior to race day. However, most of the bike course is outside the gated portion and accessible.
