On November 22nd, one week after you run in the redwoods, we hope you'll come out and scramble at Shell Ridge in Walnut Creek. Shell Ridge features steep, mostly open hillsides with little undergrowth or poison oak. There will be long and short advanced courses using a scramble format. Similar to score-o, you may visit controls in any order. However, every control must be reached before finishing. There will be the usual white, yellow, and orange courses available as well. If you would like to help out at the event, please let us know.
Restrooms should be available near the registration. If the weather gets very soggy near the date of the event, be sure and check the hotline or the Web page for any changes to this information. From I-680 in Walnut Creek, exit onto Ygnacio Valley Road and head east approximately 2.3 miles to Walnut Avenue (NOT Walnut Boulevard). Turn right on Walnut Avenue and go 1.5 miles to Oak Grove. Turn right onto Oak Grove and immediately veer right onto Castle Rock Road. Northgate High School is on the right about 0.5 mile along Castle Rock Road. Park in the school lot closest to the hills, past the buildings. Walk from the lot along Castle Rock Road, right on Comistas Drive, and left on Hanna Grove Trail.
