6/23 Dirt Dog Run @ 6:30PM

2.  Greetings

Monday evening the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 6 mile loop course on Shell Ridge in Walnut Creek from where the Joaquin Ranch Trail crosses Rockspring Place.  Ginny will be out early marking the course and Doug will be at the start to greet and sweep.

A few of Randy Sampson's friends and his brother thought that it would be great to have a bench in his memory in Las Trampas Regional Park.  Dave Stark has found two possible locations for the bench and now there is a website where Randy's friends can participate.  Stop by and check it out.

 
Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 interchange take Ygnacio Valley Road towards Concord.  Turn right on Walnut Blvd (1st light after Civic).  Follow Walnut Blvd for more than 2 miles.  Turn left on Rockspring Place.  Park on the street where the Joaquin Ranch Trail crosses.

We look forward to you joining our run.

Ginny and Doug
