The Mt Massive TH will be just fine, though depending on when you drive in it could be busy on the road from the Fish Hatchery turnoff. The runners no longer use the CT and Halfmoon Rd, rather they stay closer to treeline in the valley and dump out on the pavement over to Fish Hatchery. Also, depending on what time you drive up, the race cutoff for that area is sometime in the middle of the night (can't recall) so by sunrise Sunday there should not be any runners on the road.
