Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running our annual Ornament Run around the Lafayette Reservoir from Kat's office in Lafayette. The run and post-run event will proceed rain or shine. Alex will be at the start to get everyone going.
Here are the details provided by Kat:
Meet: 971 Dewing Ave., Lafayette
Time: 8:30 am
Bring: Your holiday spirit, an ornament for the tree, and maybe something to share.
Details: I will open up the office beforehand to drop off any treats, and /or just to use the bathrooms. Stick around after the run for treats, hot cocoa, spiced apple cider and good cheer. I will also have ornaments that you can write on to put on the tree if you don't have one, and bells for everyone to wear. The run will be mostly pavement, but around the reservoir there is a dirt path next to paved path if you choose. The run is 5.25 miles if you do the whole thing. It can be shortened. Up to the dam face and back is only 3 miles.
There will be no Dirt Dog run Christmas weekend and New Year's weekend. The next run, trail conditions permitting, will be 1/8/17.
Driving Directions: From the 680/24 interchange take 24 towards Oakland. Exit at the Central Lafayette Exit and bear right at the end of the ramp. Continue your right turn and go under the freeway. Turn right on Mt. Diablo Blvd. Look for Dewing Ave on your left. Park on the street.
