12/21 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

2.  Greetings

Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a paved course from Kat Arbor's home.  We are on pavement because the trails are still very muddy.  The course will take us around the Lafayette Reservoir on the paved path.  It's about 5-1/2 miles long.  Doug will be at the start to get everyone going.  After the run Kat has invited us to socialize at her place with hot cider and cookies.  Park on the street.

We are not planning a run on 12/28 when many of us are away with family.

Driving Directions are:  
24 Westbound, exit the Central Lafayette exit. Left at the light onto Deer Hill Rd.
Left at Oak Hill Rd.
Right onto Mt Diablo Blvd
Left onto Dewing Ave (corner is Diablo Foods, Pet food Express and La Boulange)
948 Dewing Ave
Apt C
Lafayette, CA

*Parking is available for free in the big lot behind Pet food Express and Panda Express on corner of Mt Diablo Blvd and Dewing if no street parking is available. 

We look forward to your joining our run.

Kat and Doug

12/14 Dirt Dog Run @ 9AM

Hello Dirt Dog runners and joggers,
This Sunday, December 14, we will be doing a slight variation of our usual trail run and will be joining the Trail Time group starting at 9 AM.
Due to the treacherous conditions of the trails, we will run the paved and flat Lafayette-Moraga trail instead.
We will meet at the corner of Olympic and Pleasant Hill Road in LaFayette at 9 AM in the parking lot there.
Doug will be there to meet and greet. Since it is an out and back the trail will not be marked and you can decide your own distance.
Directions:
From the 24 - 680 interchange
Go West on Highway 24 and take the Pleasant Hill Road Exit and go South (direction Rossmoor).
Turn Right on Olympic into the parking lot.
Happy Trails,
Doug and Alex

12/7 Alternate Dirt Dog Run

2.  Greetings

Our normal Dirt Dog Run has been cancelled because of the trails being muddy and heavy rain forecast for this afternoon and night.  However:

"Vivek and a few others will be running the newly re-opened Carquinez Scenic Drive (aka Brickyard, George Miller Regional Trail). Out and back, 3 to 10+ miles based on your turn around.  Meet 8:30 am Sunday 12/7 at RANKIN Park (100 Buckley St, Martinez, CA)"

This route is a combination of lightly traveled roads and bike paths.  To get there take 680 North.  Exit at the last exit before the Benicia bridge, Marina Vista.  Turn left at the bottom of the ramp and follow Marina Vista past the Shell refinery and through Martinez.  Look for signs to Rankin Park.

Doug
