TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Table Mountain Trailers run 21 May 2022

Hi all, this coming Saturday we will do an old favourite from Constantia Nek.

 

Up the steps to the first intersection, left up Constantia corner, then left to crawl up Agatha, rejoin the Constantia corner path, past the camel and then a detour to cross the tree and visit Klaasenkop.

After grinning at each other and taking pics, down to the concrete road at Devilliers dam.

 

From here are some choices based on your time constraints:

Straight back down to the cars will get you about 6km

Down Cecelia ridge and back will give you about 8km

For those with some time - Smuts track, aqueduct, upper Disa river to the museum, over the wall, Ash valley and back is between 13 and 14km

 

The weather is forecast to be chilly but very little wind, sunrise 7:35 so if we start at 7am we should have enough light for the first steps.

 

Expect some steep climbs, some minor rock scrambling, some fast and some slower single track.

 

Bring water, whistle, warm top, sour sweeties, sense of humour.

 

Any questions, whatsapp or call me on 082 570 4405.

Hi Trailers

After the hilly route this weekend, we will be exploring a flattish run in beautiful Cape Point on Saturday. Runnable with not much elevation and beautiful scenery. Both single track and tar(with a view…) – two different distances on offer

Route

We park at Buffelsbaai parking (not the information centre) and run along the upper single track towards Cape Point continuing right through to the parking at Cape Point lighthouse. Detour to the lighthouse is an option. We cross the parking and take the single track to the right that leads down to Dias Beach (we can detour down there to visit). There is also a detour to a view spot before Dias Beach – well worth visiting. Back on the single track we run down to the road and take this along the coast. At Pegram's Point we get back on to some single track and run along the coast to Platboom. Here we turn up and take the road up the hill and back to Bufflesbaai. About 14kms – detour dependent

For those who want a shorter option, cross the first tar road and turn right at the next intersection (jeep track) and follow the track down to Platboom. About 10kms

Rendezvous and start time

The park opens at 7am. We will meet at Buffelsbaai parking (take road to left after the Buffelsfontein Information centre turn off) and start running at 7h30am.

There is no reception so we won't know if you are running late.

The entrance fee for SA citizens with ID is R90 or use a Wildcard or a MyGreenCard

Terrain & Distance

The route is a combination of single track and tar. Not much elevation and very runnable.

The planned route is around 14km and the shorter route around 10km .

What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. The weather can be different in the park. Please come prepared for wind, mist, sun or rain!

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

A picnic or a swim at Buffelsbaai or Venus pools afterwards is an option. Store all food in the car out of sight of baboons while we are out running.

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

Please be aware that our runs operate under the modified COVID protocols

  • All runners to carry a mask or buff
  • Practice social distancing
  • Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • VOB reserves the right to stop TMT if the COVID infections increase again in the Western Cape
  • If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms, please stay at home

RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 7 May 2022

Good Morning Trailers

 

Our run tomorrow is ON.

It is going to be cool, so please bring appropriate clothing,  but according to my weather gurus, it looks like the rain will have passed by Saturday morning.

 

There will be NO walking group.

 

For those who will NOT do the climb up Suther Peak, there will be an option to do a very runnable route with Lorraine.

For those who choose to climb the Peak, we will do an extra leg of the route to add some distance, if time permits.

 

See you all tomorrow just before 7h00 to sign in 😊.

Hi all Trailers!

 

This week we will venture on a relatively new route for most - up Suther Peak on the Hout Bay side. 

 

 

Rendevouz

 

We meet at the brick-paved parking on Eustagia Way, opposite Brunia Way in Hout Bay.  We should be ready to start running at 7h00 – sunrise is 7h25, so please come 10 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefing.

 

Please 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.  

 

Route

We will ascend Suther Peak.  There are sections which involve some scrambling, so for those who are not keen to attempt the climb, there will be an option to do another route along the Sandy Bay/Llandudno coastline to the shipwreck and back.

 

The terrain will include beach sand, jeep track (stony), single track, boulder-hopping and a steep climb.

 

There may be a walking group but this will be confirmed on Friday.

 

What to bring – the usual, water, whistle, warm/waterproof top, and some money for the car guard.  Some may need a headlamp for the first while.

Make sure you have your emergency contact details on you.

This is a pack run so we are to look out for each other and ensure that the person behind knows we have turned.

We regroup frequently to ensure that no one gets lost.

 

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.

 

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.   The weather looks to be a cool 18 degrees with some light rain, but of course, it is Cape Town and is likely to change by the weekend 😊

 

For any queries, please feel free to Whatsapp me.

Have a great week.

Hi Trailers,

I hope you are all looking forward to another 4 day week!

Route
This week we'll start from the main parking in Silvermine (Gate 1) and start our run on a downhill as we hit the Old Wagon Road before crossing the road and returning up the Silvermine valley via the Sunbird Centre.

How to get there?  
Drive up Ou Kaapse Weg from the Constantia Valley side, over the top and right into the entrance to Silvermine North West (the dam side).
Don't forget to bring your Wildcard, MyGreen card or R42 entry fee.


Terrain and Distance.  
A good downhill along the Wagon Trail to the Sunbird centre then a gradual climb up the valley on the other side. 

Groups
Final groups to be confirmed on Friday, but there will definitely be a 'Sweepers' group led by me.
Walkers group to be confirmed on Friday


What to bring
  

Water, whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top depending on weather

Fwd: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 23 April'22 - 3 Blockhouses Run

Good afternoon all.

Our run tomorrow is ON.

Looks like a cool 13 degree start to the day with a bit of breeze. 

There may not be a fast group and will not be any walkers this time. 

I realized that this week is the one year anniversary of the devastating fires around Devils Peak, UCT and Rhodes Memorial. In homage to that I'm going to slightly adjust our starting route to include a small detour down and through Rhodes Mem and up past the gutted tea garden cottage.

There is apparently another trail event starting from Newlands at 06h30 so I suggest you get there as early as you can to secure a parking spot around the main area. Sip a takeaway coffee while you wait. 

We will still start at 06h45

To: <tmtrailers@googlegroups.com>


Hi Trailers.

We return to an oldie but goodie by tagging the 3 blockhouses. Not too difficult this weekend with a nice shortish, sharp loop. I personally have not been on the 'city' side since the awful fire so it will be interesting to see the flora now. 

Route (see attached map)
We meet at Newlands Forest parking - off Union Avenue (M3). Please try and arrive early as the parking gets very full

From the parking we turn right and run along the jeep track just above Rhodes memorial, we turn left at the intersection at the bottom and then turn right along the path to the Prince of Wales Blockhouse.

Returning to the track, we turn right and carry on, taking the left fork and the zig zags till we see the single track to the left that goes up to the Queen's Blockhouse.

We pass through the blockhouse taking the single track on the other side up to the track that takes us up to the King's Blockhouse

From the King's Blockhouse there are various options to get back to the parking depending on distance and time. (dotted lines on map). We will probably run the boardwalks and take the downhill left just after the picnic table. 



Rendezvous and start time
Meet at 0
6h30 at Newlands Forest parking. We start running at 06h45 this time due to the later sunrise. 

 

Terrain and distance
Degraded jeep track and single track. Flowing undulating running, short uphill to the king's blockhouse

The route is around 9/10km but there are options to add distance on the way back 


Groups

I will lead a Medium paced group.

Faster and Relaxed Group will be confirmed later in the week.


What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket, and your ICE information. The weather can be different on the mountain. Please come prepared for wind, mist, or extreme heat!

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



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

Please be aware that our runs operate under strict COVID protocols even though now on level 1. 

  • No gathering in a big group at the start or end of the run
  • Practice social distancing
  • Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • VOB reserves the right to stop TMT if the COVID infections increase again in the Western Cape
  • If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms, please stay at home

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 23 April'22 - 3 Blockhouses Run

Hi Trailers.

We return to an oldie but goodie by tagging the 3 blockhouses. Not too difficult this weekend with a nice shortish, sharp loop. I personally have not been on the 'city' side since the awful fire so it will be interesting to see the flora now. 

Route (see attached map)
We meet at Newlands Forest parking - off Union Avenue (M3). Please try and arrive early as the parking gets very full

From the parking we turn right and run along the jeep track just above Rhodes memorial, we turn left at the intersection at the bottom and then turn right along the path to the Prince of Wales Blockhouse.

Returning to the track, we turn right and carry on, taking the left fork and the zig zags till we see the single track to the left that goes up to the Queen's Blockhouse.

We pass through the blockhouse taking the single track on the other side up to the track that takes us up to the King's Blockhouse

From the King's Blockhouse there are various options to get back to the parking depending on distance and time. (dotted lines on map). We will probably run the boardwalks and take the downhill left just after the picnic table. 



Rendezvous and start time
Meet at 0
6h30 at Newlands Forest parking. We start running at 06h45 this time due to the later sunrise. 

 

Terrain and distance
Degraded jeep track and single track. Flowing undulating running, short uphill to the king's blockhouse

The route is around 9/10km but there are options to add distance on the way back 


Groups

I will lead a Medium paced group.

Faster and Relaxed Group will be confirmed later in the week.


What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket, and your ICE information. The weather can be different on the mountain. Please come prepared for wind, mist, or extreme heat!

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

*If you are new to this group, please read Table Mountain Trailers' guidelines here: www.tablemountaintrailers.org.za  

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.
