EXPO AND PACKET PICKUP PARKING
Parking for the Expo and Packet Pickup is available at the Inn of the Hills, 1001 Junction Hwy (SH 27).
RACE DAY PARKING
Race Day Parking will be available at the Downtown Parking Garage, Courthouse Parking Lot, and HEB on La Casa. There is also parking near Moore Home Furnishings, which is across the street from the Swim and Bike Start. Shuttle buses will be provided in the morning on race day to transport athletes and spectators between the parking lots near the finish line to the swim start and T1.
It is recommended that participants park near the finish line at the downtown garage or courthouse parking lot in the morning and then take the shuttle bus to the swim start, or arrange a ride with a spectator. This way you can easily walk your bike back to your car after the event.
If you are staying at Inn of the Hills – you can walk over to T1 and then take the shuttle down to T2 if needed and then back from T2 following the event.
Shuttles buses are open to everyone but for spectators wishing to drive – You can park at Moore Home Furnishings in the morning and then drive north and take a left on Thompson Dr. Follow this and you can park at the HEB on La Casa. Beware of crossing the bike course and watch for cyclists.
DO NOT PARK AT THE SUBWAY OR OTHER BUSINESSES; THEY WILL TOW YOUR CAR. In the past, the mall has allowed parking but we do not have that confirmed this year, so park there at your own risk.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM T1 to T2
The first transition area (T1) for all events is located in the grass behind SouthStar Bank, on Junction Hwy, just north of Guadalupe St, across the street from Inn of the Hills. This is also the location of the swim start and finish.
The second transition area (T2) and finish line are located in downtown Kerrville at Louise Hays Park.
Before the event the fastest way to get there is down Junction Hwy and across Sydney Baker Bridge. You can drive down into the park for gear bag drop-off. You will not be able to drive down into the park on race day, please review the course maps for roads that are closed on Saturday & Sunday.
