    Important fan information for Saturday's football scrimmage
    Run in Remembrance affects parking
    BLACKSBURG (hokiesports.com) – The Virginia Tech football team will hold the second of its open scrimmages Saturday starting at 10:45 a.m. inside Lane Stadium, but parking will be affected by the University’s 3.2 Run in Remembrance.

    Because of the race, fans coming to the scrimmage will need to park in the Chicken Hill lot, or lot 5, located at the corner of Tech Center Drive and Southgate. Lots 1, 2, 3 and 4 will all be inaccessible until after the run is completed and the route has been cleared, which is expected to be right around the start time of the scrimmage. Spring Road, Washington Street and other main roads on the south end of campus will be closed until the run is over, thus the Chicken Hill Lot will be the only lot guaranteed to be accessible.

    The only gate open will be gate 3, at the southwest corner of the stadium by the John Moody Flagpole Plaza. Fans will be allowed to sit on the west side of the stadium only. There will be no entrance to the field after the scrimmage.

    The run begins at 9 a.m. in front of Burruss Hall and winds through campus, eventually going through/past Lane Stadium. Please note that the route does include Lane Stadium by entering through the tunnel that the football team enters through for every home game, but this will close at 10 a.m. for the scrimmage. At that point, runners will be directed down Spring Road on the outside of the stadium and to turn left into the South End Zone Lot to begin the final portion of the run.

    Tech will wrap up its spring practice session with the annual Maroon-White Spring Game on Saturday, April 20 at 3 p.m. More information on that event will be posted on hokiesports.com early next week.
