3/12 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM Pacific Daylight Time

Hello Dirt Dog runners, joggers and walkers,

This Sunday at 8:30 (remember daylight savings time) we will be running in Briones park, starting at the top of old Briones road.
I will be out early marking the trail, and Chris will be at the start to greet and sweep.
I ran the trail on Thursday and it is fairly decent shape. There are still some slippery and muddy spots, so wear your mud shoes, but in general the trail is runnable.
At mile 2.4 you will hear the Abrigo waterfalls (more of a drizzle right now). Getting close to the 20-30 feet drop is almost impossible so I don't recommend it.

Directions to the start:
From 24-680 split, head North on 680.
Take Highway 4 west (Richmond, Martinez)
Exit at Alhambra Ave and turn left under the freeway.
After about half a mile turn right at the stoplight onto Alhambra Valley.
Follow that till the T-intersection with Reliez Valley and turn right staying on Alhambra Valley.
IMMEDIATELY (After about 300 yards??)  turn left UP onto Old Briones road.
Follow the narrow windy road all the way to the top and park.
Hope to see many of you out there.
Happy trails,
Alex, Doug and Christ
