Hi Trailers,
This Saturday we'll do the old Silvermine route that takes us along the Riverwalk, past the dam to the Blackburn Ravine Lookout and across the Panorama path before heading back Hi Trailers,

This Saturday we'll do the old Silvermine route that takes us along the Riverwalk, past the dam to the Blackburn Ravine Lookout and across the Panorama path before heading back to the cars. 

Route 
Gentle uphill warm-up along the Riverwalk. The faster group will head right at the MTB car park to head up the ridge towards Elephants Eye. The Medium group will follow the zig zags up to Blackburn viewpoint before being joined by the Fasts and taking the rocky route up to the Panorama path, or short-cutting along the jeep track. After Noordhoek Peak we connect back with the jeep track for a short distance and then follow the single track down to the dam and back down the Riverwalk or road to the car park.

Terrain and Distance
Mostly single track with a few short sections of jeep track in between.
Distance about 10-13kms, taking about 2h30, depending on short cuts.
Relaxed group to be confirmed on Friday. 

Rendezvous and Start Time
Entrance Fee:  R31 unless you can produce a Wild Card or MyGreen card.
Meet at the lower Silvermine car park (first on the left after passing through the gate) at 07h00 in time to start running at  07h15Please remember there is little or no signal there so we won’t get any ‘I’m on my way’ type messages.
Coming from Tokai, it's the first entrance to Silvermine on the right. Turn immediately left into the car park after you've paid at the boom.

What to bring
Water, whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top. ICE details and a silver blanket just in case.
Sorry-no dogs 
Regards, 
Lorraine

Saturday 26th January: Woody Ravine, Valley of Red Gods, Kasteelspoort (Theresa Ave start)

Hi Trailers!


This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but start from Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 6:30am 

Route:

We start at Theresa Ave and climb up the track to the pipetrack. Here we turn right and run along the pipetrack to Woody Ravine. We climb up Woody and turn left to run through the Valley of the Red Gods, Echo Valley and back down to the dam, going down Kasteelspoort and back down to the cars. 

For those who have time constraints, skip out the Valleys and go up Woody and down Kasteelspoort - still gives you a good workout!

RV:

We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay (see below for directions) ready to run at 6:30am

Terrain and distance:

This is mostly single track with a bit a of jeep track at the start and end. Some steepish climbs and descents but well worth doing. The distance is around 12km and there are ample routes for those who want extra distance!

Directions:

Coming from town, pass the turnoff to the cable car and continue down towards Camps Bay, taking the 3rd road to the left (Fiskaal Road). Follow this road up the hill - it becomes Francolin Ave and then Theresa Ave. Parking at the entrance is limited so par along the sea side of the road as far as possible taking care not to block any residents entrances. Please ensure that your car is facing the correct direction...

Remember:

Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and to ensure that the person behind you knows where you have turned.

Unfortunately no dogs allowed

Liz
