3/30 Dirt Dog Run @ 6:30PM

2. Greetings

Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 4 mile loop course from the East Bay Staging Area at the East end of Livorna Road in Alamo.  Doug will be out early marking the course and Rick will be at the start to greet and sweep.  The shorter than usual course is to allow everyone to finish in daylight.

We look forward to your joining our run.
