2/19 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dir Dog Trail Runners will be running an out and back course on the Iron Horse Trail from the trailhead at Rudgear Road and South Main Street in Walnut Creek.  We are once again on pavement because the rain this week made the local dirt trails which were drying out muddy and sloppy again.  Because this is an out and back run everyone can run as little or as far as they like.  Doug will be at the start to get everyone started and can tell you where to turn for your desired mileage.

There is limited parking at the trailhead but plenty of parking in the Park-Ride lot on the Southeast corner of the 680/Rudgear Road intersection.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 Interchange take 680 South.  Exit at South Main Street and continue South.  Look for the trailhead on your right just before you get to Rudgear Road.  If you are going North on 680 exit at Rudgear Road.  Turn left at the bottom of the ramp and right on South Main Street.

2/12 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

Hello Runners Joggers and Walkers,

Because the trails are still quite muddy, slippery and treacherous, we will be doing another run on a paved bike path.
This Sunday at 8:30 we will be doing an out and back from Alex's apartment in Concord followed by some hot soup afterwards.
We will run on the Contra Costa Canal trail and since it is an out and back, you can go as far or as short as you want.

The address is:
1070 San Miguel Road 
Building A apt 8

Parking is on Tioga Street
or any parking space in the apartment complex that is not numbered.

from 680 Take the Monument Blvd Exit
Follow Monument past Costco
Turn Right on Systron Drive
Immediately right on San Miguel Road
Left on Tioga Road 
(you can park on Tioga Road or turn left into the first driveway of the apartment complex and make two more left turns till you are facing the BART tracks. Find Building A and go up a flight of stairs to find apartment A8)

No 2/5 Dirt Dog Run

Heavy rain Thursday night with more rain forecast for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will keep already muddy and sloppy trails from any improvement.  Consequently, we have decided there will be no Dirt Dog run this weekend.
