11/19 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running an out and back course on the Lafayette-Moraga Trail from the parking lot at the corner of Pleasant Hill Road and Olympic Blvd. in Lafayette.  The rain we have had this week has made most of the dirt trails muddy and dangerous.  Doug and Tina will be at the start to get everyone going.

There will be no run Thanksgiving Weekend (11/26).  Our next scheduled run will be 12/3.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 Interchange take 24 towards Oakland.  Exit at the first exit onto Pleasant Hill Road South.  Follow Pleasant Hill Road to the "T" and turn right onto Olympic Blvd.  Make an almost immediate right into the parking lot.  You are at the start of the run.
