FW: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 28 January 2023: TMTT2T - Toad to Toad Lakeside to Noordhoek

Hi all, TMTT2T is ON tomorrow

 

Weather – a breeze from the south to cool us down, some drizzle around 8am to cool us down some more, we will start at about 18 degrees and finish at about 21 degrees, full on 100% cloud so all of that means PERFECT running weather.

 

Car admin – suggestion is to meet at 6am at Noordhoek and jump in as few cars as possible and drive to Lakeside.  After the run we can make a plan to get those drivers back to their cars at Lakeside.

 

There will be a walking group starting at Silvermine (the non-gate side) which will be 10km.

The walkers will be doing similar car admin, some going to Noordhoek and catching a lift to Lakeside, and from Lakeside Toad at about 6:30am, they will drive up to the Silvermine gate 2 (I think it is gate 2) – the non-dam side, and they will join us at the end at the Noordhoek Toad for a beer or two.

 

Any questions phone or whatsapp me 082 570 4405

RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 21 January 2023: Kalk Bay, Trappieskop and Silvermine

Hi Trailers

 

Our run tomorrow is ON!

 

The weather forecast changes day to day so please come prepared. Right now, it looks to be sunny and warm with a gentle breeze.

 

There will be a walking group that will be doing a different route from the same start point.

 

See you there!

Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 21 January 2023: Kalk Bay, Trappieskop and Silvermine

 

Hi Trailers

 

Next Saturday Bay to Bay takes over Camps Bay and Hout Bay so we will stay on the East side of the mountain. We start at Kalk Bay station and work our way up to Silvermine.

Route

We start at the parking at Kalk Bay station and clamber up the stairs to Boyes Drive. There we turn left and run along the road for a while until we get to the Trappieskop path. We follow this path up and over (detour to Trappieskop if you want to) all the way down to Clovelly where we run along the single track just above the houses coming down just before the Golf Club. Time to stretch our legs as we take the jeep track through the Golf Course to Sunbird Centre. From here we slog up the hill to Dead Man's path.

At this point there are various options:

  1. Turn right and follow Dead Man's path up the hill to the junction and then turn left to the amphitheatre, through to the crassula path, down to the jeep track, turn right along the jeep track and right again through Speciosa Valley and take the Spes Bona path down to Weary Willy's and back home (around 15-16km - estimated)
  2. Turn left and run to the jeep track, turn right on to the jeep track, pass the crassula path and take the next path right through Speciosa Valley and take the Spec Bona path down to Weary Willy's and home (around 11 – 12 km – estimated: more single track)
  3. Turn left and stay on the jeep track, turning right at the jeep track junction and following this all the way to Weary Willy's and home (around 11 – 12km: more jeep track)

Rendezvous and start time

Park in the Kalk Bay station parking (near Cape to Cuba). Arrive early for check in, ready to run at 6am

Terrain & Distance

The route is a combination of jeep track and single track with bits of tar at the start and past the golf course.

Depending on the route chosen, the distances are approximately 11-12km or 15 – 16km. Very runnable.

What to bring 

Sufficient water for hot weather, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information

Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear and enough water.

Re: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Table Mountain Trailers - Saturday 14 January 2023


Good Friday Trailers!

Hope you've had a great holiday break and are feeling ready to run into 2023 with renewed energy.

Route

For our first run of the year, we'll do our usual Llandudno/Sandy Bay route.

 

The route starts with a short uphill on the brick paved road, then down to the beach and proceed onto Llandudno .  We then backtrack to Sandy Bay, enjoy the views and head southwards along the shoreline to OudeSchip Peninsula. You can spot the shipwreck Harvest Capella (1986).  We'll then tackle the steep climb on gabion steps up to Rocket (Mitchells) Road.  Once on the gravel road, we run until we take the left fork at the stone cairn and head back towards our cars.   

 

Please remember that for safety reasons, this is a pack run.  We will run in different speed groups, but we will all regroup at the rocks at the end of Llandudno, and then again on the beach at Sandy Bay before heading onto the rocky shoreline.   Within your speed group, you will need to be sure that if you come to a turn, that the runner behind you has seen which way you go. 


Terrain and Distance

The terrain will include beach sand, jeep track (stony), single track, boulder-hopping and some steps to get the heart rate pumping.

Distance in the region of 11,5  km, with an estimated time of 2,5 hours, plus more to enjoy the view

 

 

Rendezvous and Start Time 

Meet at the brick-paved parking on Eustagia Way, opposite Brunia Way Hout Bay.  Ready to start running at 6h00.  Please come 10 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefingPlease be aware there is limited parking, so please try and share lifts with friends, or even park away from the area and walk to the start.  Please be considerate when parking your car.

 

Directions

Take the Hout Bay Main Road around the circle into Victoria Road, drive through the robots and take the second road to the left into Edgar Road and second road on the right. Into Eustegia Way. Parking area on the left opposite Brunia Way.  

 

Walking group
Confirmed :)

 

What to bring

The usual: water, whistle, warm/waterproof top, sun block, camera, money for the car guard.  Make sure you have your emergency contact details on you. You might want to bring a cozzie and a towel for a quick dip afterwards at one of these gorgeous beaches as the forecast is for a temperature range of 18-22 degrees for the duration of our run.

 

Have a great week.

Fwd: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 17 December 2022: Silvermine West - End of year picnic

Hi Everyone! 

Sing along to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas:

On the 17th December
My trail friends said to me...
Runners are a-running :)
Walkers are a-walking :)
Picnic is a-happ'ning -
'Coz the run is ON!!!

Parking at the dam, 
Bring mince pies, coffee, other treats
And a bev'rage with some alcohol!

(Round of applause if you sang that aloud!)

Start time is 7.20 latest - allow for queues at the entrance and remember that there is no signal. In case you miss us, familiarise yourself with the path from the dam to Elephant's Eye cave/Tokai lookout - we'll be starting along that route.

I can't say where the exact picnic spot will be as this is wind dependent, but we'll be there! Family members are most welcome to join us.

Hi Trailers!

Saturday 17th December sees us meet for our last official sortie of 2022. We'll run one of our old Silvermine favourites, Three Lookouts and a Peak, and celebrate the year's finale with a picnic brunch and a swim in the dam, weather permitting.

Route

Starting at the car park nearest to the dam*, we'll head towards the fire lookout over Tokai, meander towards Blackburn lookout and complete the circular route via Noordhoek Peak to the Noordhoek lookout. There are options to include the Panorama path, the Crassula Path, divert to Elephant's Eye Cave and/or extend the distance with a jog down the River Walk. We'll organize group leaders and sweeps on the day. 

Rendezvous and Start Time

The main gate - the one with the SANParks checkpoint - opens at 7am so please make your way to the car park at the dam* as quickly as possible. 
We'll start running as soon as possible - latest 7:20am.
NB: There is no cellphone signal in Silvermine so if you are running late, there is no way to let us know. Don't be late!  

Entry fee to Silvermine is still amazing value at R38 per adult. Please bring your ID book to prove you are a SA national. Alternatively, buy a MyGreen card at the Tokai SANParks office this week, or carry your Wild card.

Terrain and Distance

Single track, jeep track, and a little bit of rock hopping. Depending on the group you join and the whim of the day, you'll run somewhere between 8 and 12km. 

Groups

We will organise groups on the day. There will definitely be a "Lorraine's speed" group, hopefully a faster group and possibly a walking group. All to be confirmed on Friday.

Please bring:

A whistle, WATER, a warm & waterproof/windproof top, space blanket and ICE (In  Case of Emergency) tag or card.

If you're staying for a Christmas picnic, please bring a cooler box with your favourite snacks and cool drinks. Invite your home family to join you and meet your trail family!

Unfortunately we do not welcome dogs on our runs.

See you there!

Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 26 November 2022: Silvermine West: NB Entry fee R38 cash/My Green Card/Wildcard

 

Hi Trailers

 

Next Saturday the UTCT 160km run takes over every mountain in Cape Town, except Cape Point and the North. As some of the trailers will be helping with marshalling, I decided that the far North and South options wouldn't work. I've crafted a route in Silvermine West that allows us to run and also to see and support some of the 160km runners.

A walking group will be confirmed on Friday

Route

We enter at Gate 1 (dam side) and park immediately to the left of the entry hut. From there we take the jeep track to the left (aware of the race runners going across to Silvermine East crossing), passing the entrance to the river walk until we come to the cairn marking the single track to the right. We follow this single track, keeping right and then left at the cairn till we hit the jeep track coming down from Noordhoek peak. We turn left and run until the single track marking the entrance to Crassula/Amphitheatre path on the right. We run the Crassula path until we get to the jeep track. Again we need to be careful of the race runners. We turn right and run down the jeep track turning off to the dam (optional deviation down the jeep track to Elephant's Eye and Steenberg Ridge) and take the river walk back to the cars. (I can't tell from the map if UTCT runners take the River Walk – if they do, we'll take an alternative option back)

Rendezvous and start time

Officially the gate opens at 7am. Please come early so we can start running at 7h20. There is no mobile reception so we won't know if you're late.

Terrain & Distance

The route a combination of jeep track and single track.

The route is around 11km with added kilometres to Elephant's Eye and possibly Steenberg ridge – 14km

What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. Please remember your entry fee of R38 cash plus your ID /MyGreenCard/Wildcard!

Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear.

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not allow dogs on its runs.

  • Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • If you are not well, please stay at home
