The action plan covers the event proper and the registration/check-in which is all well and good. It would seen the greater part of the risk, as the WP article notes, is travel, lodging, and dining associated with participants from a wide geographic area.
I would guess that most people are not coming from far. I'm driving down (2.5hr) the night before, camping, racing and leaving. No need to stop anywhere local. If anything the requirement for packet pickup the two days before will force people to stay in the area rather than drive up the day of.
. . . General - I believe the RD expects less than 750 people (as compared to the 1200)
Looking at the results from previous years suggests this is something of a destination race for runners across the country and beyond. I'd expect that will be way down this year, but historically a lot of the participants would be doing significant travel and multiple overnight stays.
Good luck with your race.
