Pre-ride the Course:
Gamehaven is OK letting pre-riders use the scout lot, but weekdays are better than weekends so they don’t violate their “youth camp” occupancy guidelines for COVID-19. An exception is September 10–12, when the lot will be closed to the public because the camp is booked for private use.

The course if currently marked and Gamehaven has put up some additional signage to get pre-riders to the trail from that lot. Student-athletes will enter the trail ~200y from the start line and will not be able to go down to the start line for their pre-ride. Same thing at the finish, they will be able to go ~200y from the finish, but will then be diverted.

The course will be available to pre-ride until the Thursday before the race. There is no pre-ride during the race weekend (Friday–Sunday).
