Run announcement for 1/12…

Saturday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail runners will be running a 6-mile course (give or take a bit) from Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek. With all the rain we may be doing some rock hoping to cross the streams…a fun run even with the rain leaving streams through-out the course. Linda will be out early to mark the course and I (Tina) will be at the start to greet and sweep.

Driving Directions: Exit I-680 at Ygnacio Rd in Walnut Creek and drive east. After about three miles turn right on Walnut AVENUE (NOT Walnut Blvd). After about two miles enter the roundabout and go right on Castle Rock Road. Follow Castle Rock Road till the end past the horse stables and park on the left.


Hope to see you there!

Run announcement for 1/5…

Saturday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a course from the Alhambra Staging Area in Martinez. Sonia will be out early to mark the course and Chuck will be at the start to greet & sweep. There is a possibility of rain. If it’s a light rain, we can still go for it. I am not sure if there will be anyone from the park district to collect the $3.00 parking fee so consider carpooling.

From the 24-freeway heading West, exit Pleasant Hill Blvd, veer right once you hit Taylor Blvd., stay left. Turn left at Grayson Rd, turn right on Reliez Valley Rd. Once you see a horse staging area make a left which is Brookside Dr. Drive all the way down the road until you reach a parking lot.  

From the 4-freeway heading West Exit at Alhambra Blvd and turn left. Turn right at 2nd set of lights Alhambra Valley Rd. Turn left at Reliez Valley Rd 3-way stop. Once you see a horse staging area, make a right which is Brookside Dr. Drive all the way down the road until you reach a parking lot.  


There is a chance you will have to pay $3 for parking per car.
