For our final run of the year we will do the scenic Signal Hill route in a clockwise direction followed by our customary end of year picnic breakfast in the tranquil Green Park
Rendezvous and Start Time
We meet in the Green Point Light House parking area in time to be ready to start running at 0630
From the parking area we run along the promenade and then up Glengariff Road to the very top where we turn left though the belt of trees and up and around the Noon Gun Battery.
Then up to the trail that runs above Signal Hill Rd and follow it all the way to the Kloof Nek circle. Down Kloof Road for about 400m to the footpath that leads off right up the side off Lion's Head. Follow this single track trail as it runs around the flanks of Lion's Head and above Clifton all the way to just below the Kramat.
From here take the Lion's Head path as it descends down the North western flank of Signal Hill through the belt of trees back to the top of Glengarith Rd. Immediately turn right onto Springbok Rd, run past the mega rich folks houses and make your way down through the houses over High-Level Road down and across Main Road to the Virgin Active Health Club and through Green Park back to the start. Distance about 14km taking 2 to 2.5 hours [See Google Earth image below.]
Medium Group have the option of cutting out the drop down to Kloof Nek Circle and Kloof Road rather taking the direct route around Lion's head.
Relaxed Group will turn at the Kramat
After the Run
Collect your goodies and walk back through the Green Point Park West Gate to our picnic site on the lawn on your right. [See Google Earth Image below]

Trail Running Group
Warning: Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running. It takes place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.
Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed. To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.
By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that: 1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety. 2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and 3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.
