Route

We'll start by crossing the road and running up the bridal path behind Forest Glade Estate and past the braai area to the entrance to the Arboretum. From here we'll follow the jeep track up, breaking into the various speed groups and the group leaders will decide on their routes.

 

Terrain and Distance

Gravel tracks and trails with some good climbing sections.  Distance will be 10-12 km, with the option to do a loop of the Lower Park at the end to add another fast and flat 4km to the distance.

  • Spacing of 1-2 metres to be maintained at start and end of the run
  • All runners to carry a mask or buff 
  • We will break into small groups as per regulations while we run
  • No personal sign in – ensure the leader ticks you in/out. 
  • We will monitor the groups on a weekly basis for size
  • 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

 

Important:   

Our runs are pack runs and we will therefore regroup as necessary and leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. Please remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  

 

Sorry - no Dogs  allowed on our runs.

RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 17th September 2022 - Simonstown to Smitswinkel

Good Morning Trailers

 

Our run tomorrow is ON

The weather reports are predicting much cloud cover, and the possibility of a little rain during the morning, so please bring appropriate clothing.

 

Just a reminder that there will be no relaxed group.

Having said that, there will be lots of regrouping, and stopping to admire the views, and definitely time spent taking photos!

 

Looking forward to seeing you at the start tomorrow morning at 7.20am.

Hi
 Trailers,

 

Next Saturday we will be venturing along a beautiful route starting from Simonstown. This is a point to point route, so there will be some car admin involved. The trail requires a permit from SanParks and permission from the landowner of the private reserve that the path crosses. This has been organised, and each group will need to carry a copy which I will supply at the start,  just in case there are rangers on the mountain.  SanParks would like us to report any sightings of klipspringers, ideally with photographs.

 

Route
We start from Jan Smuts Drive in Simonstown and climb up the jeep track which turns into a single track towards the Quarries. Just before the Quarries we take the path that turns to the left, and climb up towards Blockhouse Gap, passing ruins of a Blockhouse. At Blockhouse Gap we take the path to the left to climb to the top of Swart Kop. The path continues south towards Smitswinkel, along the top of the Swartkop mountains, and then descends towards the Smitswinkel tented camp and the road to Cape Point, near where the cars are parked at the end. For extra distance, there is the option to cross the main road and continue down to Smitswinkel Bay, with a climb back up to the car park. If the fast group needs a lot more distance, there is the option to run back to the start, either on the trail or on the t*r along the coast (approximately 19km if completing the full loop...). There will be around 739m ascent in total on the basic route.

Rendezvous and start time
Meet at 
7.20 am at Jan Smuts Drive, Simonstown (near number 30) ready to start at 7.30am. 

 

How to get there

Drive through the centre of Simonstown towards Cape Point. Just after Simons Town School on the right, and a convenience store on the left, turn right up Harrington Road. Continue to the T junction at the top and turn left into Jan Smuts drive. Continue along Jan Smuts and the start will be just after number 30 on the right. There should be parking along Jan Smuts, please be considerate when parking and do not block any residents access.

 

The car park at the end of the trail is at Smitswinkel Bay Corner (permit indicates max of 4 vehicles) This is approximately 12 min drive (9.3km) from the start.

Parking is not permitted at Smits Forestry station or Smits Camp, including driveways.


Terrain and distance
Starting on jeep track, then single track. Uphill start and then undulating with a steepish descent near the end. Around 9,5 - 11km depending on the route chosen.

Groups
This is a pack run with regular regroups, we will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. 

 

There will be NO relaxed group on Saturday.

Dogs
Please note that K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs. The permit also indicates that dogs are not allowed on this trail.

 

What to bring
Water, whistle, warm/windproof top depending on weather, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.


ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.   
Leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

 

Hope to see you all there for a great morning out on some beautiful trail !

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.
