Final Instructions for Dublin Distance Fiesta

Hello Coaches,

Thank you all in advance for making this year's Dublin Distance Fiesta the best ever!  We have 44 high schools coming, now over 1100 athletes competing and 2 fantastic coaches music request lists so we are looking forward to a great day of distance racing!  A few things of note:
  • The DDF will happen rain or shine!
  • With the sudden cancelation of the Martinez Relays, we have accommodated two teams into the DDF.  THIS WILL NOT CHANGE THE NUMBER OF HEATS NOR THE ENTRANTS IN THE HEATS - WE DID NOT NOR WILL WE RESEED!  I simply placed them in heats they would have belonged in had they been signed up from the beginning.  They will not show up on the heat sheets in the program as I have already copied those but they will be on the official heat sheets at the check-in area and finish line.  Their coaches have been notified what heats their athletes are in.
  • Being that it is St. Patrick's Day and that we are in Dublin, our city does a parade in the morning that will lead to some street closures near the high school until 11:30 AM.  I will provide you with alternative directions to avoid the street closures:
    • If you are coming from the NORTH - Take 680 SOUTH.  Take the ALCOSTA BLVD exit.  At the exit, make a LEFT onto SAN RAMON VALLEY BLVD.  Turn LEFT on ALCOSTA BLVD.  Turn RIGHT on VILLAGE PARKWAY.  Turn LEFT on BRIGHTON DRIVE and the track & field stadium will be on your left.
    • If you are coming from the EAST - Take 580 WEST.  Take the HOPYARD RD/DOUGHERTY RD exit.  At the exit, make a RIGHT onto DOUGHERTY ROAD.  Turn LEFT on AMADOR VALLEY BLVD.  Turn RIGHT on BRIGHTON DRIVE and the track & field stadium will be on your right.
    • If you are coming from the SOUTH - Take 680 NORTH.  Take the ALCOSTA BLVD exit.  At the exit, make a RIGHT onto ALCOSTA BLVD.  Turn RIGHT on VILLAGE PARKWAY.  Turn LEFT on BRIGHTON DRIVE and the track & field stadium will be on your left.
    • If you are coming from the WEST - Take 580 EAST.  Take the HOPYARD RD/DOUGHERTY RD exit.  At the exit make a LEFT onto DOUGHERTY ROAD.  Turn LEFT on AMADOR VALLEY BLVD.  Turn RIGHT on BRIGHTON DRIVE and the track & field stadium will be on your right.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you all for coming!  It's not a Fiesta unless people come and party!

Thank you for working all the hours preparing for this fun Distance Festival. It's always a great event, rain or shine. We especially like the special sombreros with stuff glued on them and of course the music.
