****REMINDER****** if you are coming to the run on Saturday, you cannot access Stamper Lane from Godfrey Road due to construction. You CAN get to the East park entrance (the ball diamonds) from Pierce Lane. From Godfrey Road go west on Airport Road, then left on Pierce Lane, then left on Stamper. Once you pass the West entrance(soccer fields), you will see a barricade like the one below. You absolutely CAN GO THROUGH the barricade, there will be signs pointing you to go through and a volunteer directing you as well. That will give you access to the east entrance of the park and to the run!
