7/21 Dirt Dog Run @ 6:30PM

2.  Greetings

Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 6 mile loop course on Shell Ridge from the end of Whitecliff Way in Walnut Creek.  Ginny will be out early marking the course and Doug will be at the start to greet and sweep.  Plan on getting to the start a bit early to insure you start with the group and have arrows to follow.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 Interchange take 680 South towards Dublin.  Exit at the South Main St exit and continue South on South Main Street.  Turn left on Rudgear Road.  (Those coming North on 680 can exit directly onto Rudgear Road.)  Follow Rudgear Road East past Rudgear Park.  Turn left on Whitecliff Way.  Park at the end of the road where the run will begin.

We look forward to your joining our run

Ginny and Doug
