    I'm thinking about using sand in my run. I'm a bit confused about where and how to get it and which type. I don't have a truck and the deliveries look too huge for my use. What is "washed masonry sand"? Is that ok to use? What about "washed coarse concrete sand"?

    If it's just sand, I think those will be fine.
    You'll be better off (price wise) with a load delivered rather than buy it by the bag, especially if you have much ground to cover. A bag of sand will disappear almost immediately.
