**New meeting spot**

Leader: Kirsten Hirneisen

Location: Mariners Church, 5001 Newport Coast Dr., Irvine (this is the current location of the Famers Market that used to be @ UCI)

Directions: Exit 405 Freeway @ Culver. Go south on Culver which becomes Bonita Canyon Road once you cross Shady Canyon Rd. Go past Turtle Ridge drive and turn left into driveway on the North side of the campus. Youll follow the driveway to the right (turning left is blocked off for the market) and park in either lot on your left or right.

If you enter on the West side of campus from Newport Coast Dr, turn left from the driveway and park on either right or left side lots. There is ample parking in the complex. (The Farmers Market has requested we not meet at the childrens playground anymore.)Wewill meet in frontof the Chapel which is building 2 on the map (posted under Discussion). Bathrooms are building 3. Building 4 is under construction.

About the Run: This is essentially a modified Quail Hill Loop in reverse from the Irvine Farmers Market at Mariners Church. The run as described below is 10 miles, but like all runs, the distance can be shortened or lengthened.


Detailed Description: Leaving the Farmers Market, turn right onto Bonita Canyon Road (there is sidewalk). At the second light, turn Right onto Shady Canyon Road and continue the Quail Hill Route in reverse, with the exception of crossing the 405DO NOT CROSS THE 405 unless you want to make the run longer. Instead, continue on the Shady Canyon bikeway trail on the west side of the freeway. This merges with University Trail (its all one continuous trail, two different names).

Staying on the trail will drop you off on Culver, which turns into Bonita Canyon Road. This will be a gradual climb uphill all the way to the Farmers Market. When you smell the food, turn left into the Mariners parking lot. One tricky part of following the trail is crossing Ridgeline Drive. Cross Ridgeline Drive (obeying the walk signals) and turn left on Ridgeline before you pick back up the University Trail. There are water and/or bathroom stops at Bommer Canyon parking lot, QuailHill parking lot and where the University trail meets Culver (Water only).
