2.  Greetings

Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 5 mile loop course from Indian Valley School in Walnut Creek.  The shorter distance and no trees on the last 2 miles should let everyone finish with good lighting.  The course will go up the backside of Shell Ridge, cross over at Borges Ranch, and finish on the Mt Diablo - Briones Trail.  Doug will be out early marking the course and Rick will be at the start to greet and sweep.

We will switch over to Sunday morning runs October 5th.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 interchange take Ygnacio Valley Road towards Concord.  Turn right on Homestead (2nd light after Civic).  Turn left on Marshall Drive.  Go to the end of Marshall and park on the street in front of the school.

We look forward to your joining our run.
