Run announcement for 9/17…

Monday evening, at 6:30, the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 3-mile course on Shell Ridge. Ginny will be out early to mark the course and Anne will be at the start to greet and sweep. We have shortened the runs as it is getting dark earlier but feel free to go out further if you’d like.

NOTE: Beginning October, we will be switching to weekend runs either Saturday or Sunday morning. We are looking for feedback on which day you would prefer. Please let us know.

Also, we are always looking to add new, fun courses so if you have a trail that you enjoy and are willing to mark the course please let us know. We will be back to 6-mile runs with shorter options available once we start morning runs.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 interchange take the Ygnacio Valley Road exit.  Follow Ygnacio Valley Road East past Civic and turn right at the next traffic light onto Walnut Blvd. Follow Walnut Blvd for 2+ miles. Turn left onto Rockspring Place. Park on the street where the Joaquin Ranch Trail crosses.


We look forward to you joining our run!
