TRANSPORTS/New Balance Trail Run, Wednesday 8/8/12...6:30 PM!

Greetings All!
This week we'll meet back at Skyline Gate and do the "Flat" Bayview run.  Our New Balance Tech Rep will be on hand with samples of some minimal New Balance Trail shoes for people to try.
We will raffle off a New Balance Backpack and a couple of tech shirts at the end of the run as well
The run is out-and-back and is just shy of 7.5 miles total (3.75 out, 3.75 back).  There is one pretty good climb in the middle, but for the most part it's about as flat an 7.5 mile run as you'll get on the trails of the East Bay hills.
There are water and restroom facilities at the Staging Area.  Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash on the 2nd half of the trail (on the Sequoia Bayview Trail).
Running will commence at 6:30. Questions?  Let me know.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
