Announcing a new Meetup for Transports Running Group!

What: TRANSPORTS/Nike Women's Marathon Trail Run!
When: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 6:30 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Greetings all,
This Wednesday we'll hit the glorious Nimitz Trail in Tilden Park off of Inspiration point. Meetup doesn't have it's location correctly listed, so see directions below. This "Trail" is actually a paved bike path but has a dirt strip along the side for some softer surface running. There are mile markers every 1/2 mile out to 4 miles out, so you could easily do an 8 mile run, but if you want to turn around earlier, you are more than welcome.

After the run, we will raffle off 2 entries to the Nike Women's Marathon or 1/2 Marathon. The entries still must be paid for, but guarantees your spot for this year's event.
One word of caution: There is no water fountain at the parking lot, but there are restrooms.

See you all there!

Take Spruce north to where it intersects with Grizzly Peak and Wildcat Canyon Rd. Go straight through the intersection onto Wildcat Canyon Rd. After about 3 miles, Inspiration Point parking lot will be on your left.
From Oakland,
Take Claremont Avenue behind the Claremont Resort to stop sign the top of the hill. Turn left onto Grizzly Peak Blvd. You will go uphill for another mile or so, and the road will flatten out at the Steam Trains. 300 meters after the Steam Trains, turn Right onto South Park Drive. At the stop sign at the bottom of the hill, turn right onto Wildcat Canyon. After about a mile, Inspiration Point parking lot will be on your left.

Check it out!
