11/20 Dirt Dog Run Cancelled

The weather folks are calling for steady with at times heavy rain Saturday followed by more rain Sunday.  Running on slippery, muddy trails is no fun so we are cancelling our planned run on Shell Ridge.

There will be no run next weekend, Thanksgiving weekend.  Our next run is scheduled for December 4th.

Have a happy Thanksgiving.

11/6 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM PST

Sunday morning at 8:30 Pacific Standard Time the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running from the Inspiration Point parking lot on Wildcat Canyon Road, rain or shine.  If trail conditions are good Kat will be out early marking our course and Chris will be at the start to greet and sweep.  If trail conditions are poor we will run an out and back course on Nimitz Way, a paved bike trail on the ridge above Berkeley.

Remember to set your clocks back Saturday night since Sunday we return to Standard Time.

Keep any valuables in your car out of sight since there have been break-ins in the parking lot.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 Interchange take 24 towards Oakland.  Exit at the Orinda exit and bear right at the bottom of the ramp onto Camino Pablo towards Richmond.  Camino Pablo will become San Pablo Dam Road.  Turn left onto Wildcat Canyon Road.  Look for the parking lot near the top of a 2.5 mile hill on your right.
