1401 Virginia Street, Berkeley, CA
This is a BART-to-BART run along the Ohlone greenway (http://www.traillink.com/trail/ohlone-greenway.aspx). We start at the North Berkeley BART station and run upto the El Cerrito Plaza BART station and then come back the same way. The total distance is approx. 4 miles.
We will meet at the north-west corner of the North Berkeley BART station (corner of Virginia and Acton Streets). There should be plenty of street parking in that area at that time.
If this is your first time running this route, here is a visual for familiarity. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/824679089
The Ohlone greenway is a paved walk/run/bike path that is relatively well lit at night, and mostly runs through residential neighborhoods of North Berkeley and Albany.
Given that we share the path with other walkers, runners and bikes, I just ask that we be mindful not to hog the entire path. Also, given the reducing daylight hours, you may want to consider some reflective clothing and/or headlamp; Though you can decide that depending on your comfort level with the path and lighting.
Also, the path crosses a few busy streets, so please be mindful of the vehicle traffic when crossing them.
Optional post-run --> Depending on how the group feels, we may go out for a well deserved bite (and drink!).
