10/12 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

2.  Greetings

Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 7 mile loop course in Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.  There will also be a 5 mile short course.  The course offers excellent views of Kilkare Canyon on the way out and Pleasanton on the way back.  Doug will be out early marking the course and Sonia will be at the start to greet and sweep.  This is a dog friendly run.

We've been asked to post the following announcement.
