This Saturday we are back in Newlands Forest.
Rendezvous and Start Time
Meet at the gate of the Newlands Forest Fire base / station. Sign in at 7.20am and start at 7.30am
We head off in the direction of Kirstenbosch and do a little loop in paradise giving Lady Anne Barnard the impression that we are passing by her cottage. Continue pass intersection and head back onto the jeep track and proceed to the left in the direction of the first bicycle slip lane that leads towards Kirstenbosch. Where to now. We make our way up to the big rock and now we find ourselves on the contour path where we head in the direction of the dreaded Newlands Ravine. Do we go up the Ravine? No, we don't. Sense of smiles all around. We carry on in the direction of Kings blockhouse. Regrouping at the turnstile we turn our heads towards the blockhouse and acknowledge the King with a royal wave and proceed towards the tafelberg gravel road and dip down on the single track to the Queen and thereafter to the Prince before making our way back to Newlands forest parking.
Relaxed Group: Confirmed, and a shorter route can be arranged

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.
