No one will be allowed into the State Park, this includes dropping off athletes or supplies.  We do provide the lot outside the State Park (Hazel Cal Trans Park & Ride) for loading and unloading.  There will be customer service carts to help transport items and people into the event from this location.  Please note that carts are not for athletes, customer service carts are for general public. If dropping supplies for team hospitality, you may unload in the Park & Ride and the carts will help you to your tent. Vehicles may not be left unattended in the Park & Ride. Carts are not permitted to transport guests to the event parking areas.
