FW: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 25th January 2020 - NewlandsForest

Hi All,

 

This Saturday's run is confirmed.  The weather is looking perfect for trail running – cool and overcast - according to my app.

 

There will be three groups:

  • a longer/faster group led by Tim
  • a medium group led by yours truly
  • a relaxed (run/walk) group led by Felicity & Neil.

 

See you at the UCT carpark nearest to Rhodes Mem Drive by 6:25 latest.

Hi,

 

How about ending January – yes! already! - with a cool, shady run in Newlands forest? Something like the old Two Oceans 10km route, give or take a path here and a rock there.

 

Brief description of route

We'll head up the Rhodes Mem hill past the old zoo to pick up the Silvertree Trail, nip over to the Woodcutters Path, and wend our way in a south-westerly direction until we can go no further. Hopefully, we'll pass Lady Barnard's cottage and some trickling streams along the way. Highlights will include the intoxicating scent of the forest floor and the magic of dappled sunshine through the trees.

 

Terrain and distance

We'll try to run on undulating single tracks as much as possible, with the odd jeep track thrown in for sanity. The medium group will cover more or less 10 km. This is a short run: we usually finish in about 90 minutes. Tim's group may go a little further.

 

Rendezvous and start time

We'll start at the UCT Upper Campus South parking lot at 6.30am. From the southern suburbs, take the M3 offramp into UCT campus and loop around, keeping left, until you start heading off campus again. If you're coming from town/north, take exit 7 and drive all the way through campus and out the other side. You'll see a parking lot with trees as you exit.

Please be there by 6.25am latest to sign the register and for a short briefing.

 

cid:image002.png@01D5CF05.1AA78530

 

Groups
This is a pack run with regular regroups. We will split into various speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning.
The relaxed group will be confirmed on Friday.
* Please note that our relaxed group is a running group, not a walking or hiking group. *

 

Dogs
Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.
 
What to bring
Compulsory kit: Water, whistle, warm/windproof top depending on weather, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.
The weather looks to be warm and sunny so please carry plenty of water and wear sunscreen.


Important: 

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.   
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.

Happy New Year Trailers!

 

Welcome to our first official run of 2020!

We will be doing a new route for us – up to Chapman's Nek, carrying on up to reach Silvermine, then along to Blackburn Ravine and down. There are variations for different distances.

 

Route
We meet at Hout Bay Beach parking to sign in. Then we'll pile into a few cars and drive up to park at the turnaround point on Chappies.

We go up the single track to Chapman's Nek and at the junction continue up the single track to eventually reach Silvermine between Noordhoek Peak and Noordhoek Lookout. A fairly big climb but not exposed.

Once in Silvermine, there are a variety of options to get to the top of BlackBurn: jeep track, panorama path or Amphitheatre path (similar distances just timing will differ). We come down Blackburn via the top path or the normal path. Once at East Fort, we run back down to the beach parking (10km). (ferrying drivers back to the start to pick up cars)

 

For those that want extra distance, they can take the contour path back to the Nek and run back down to the cars at the start.(13km)

For a shor­ter run, at Chapman's Nek junction, go up Chapmans Peak and back down to start.


Rendezvous and start time
Meet at
6:25am at the beach parking at Hout Bay to sign in. Then pile into a few cars and drive up to park at the turnaround point on Chappies (asking for a free Day Pass at the tollgate).

We'll start running around 6:45am.

There is not a lot of parking up there so we need as few cars as possible

 

Terrain and distance
Single track and jeep tracks. Uphill start and then jeep track or single track running in  Silvermine and single track and jeep track down Blackburn

Around 10 – 13km 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. 

The relaxed group will be confirmed on Friday

Dogs
Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.

Re: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 14th December SILVERMINE CELEBRATION SORTIE

Good morning Trailers,

I'm sure we are all keeping our eyes on the weather forecast for tomorrow morning. I'm seeing the rain dissipating on the many websites I've looked at so let's hope they're right.

But irrespective of the weather, we'll see each other as close to 7am as possible  at the Silvermine dam car park. 

Don't forget your SANparks card, MyGreen card or R32 + SAID. 

Wear red or green -or both- for a bit of festive spirit and bring mince pies and something jolly to drink for a possibly damp picnic at the end. 

Lorraine

Hi Trailers,


Saturday 14th December sees us meet for our last official sortie of 2019. We'll run one of our old familiar favourites, 3 Lookouts and a Peak, and celebrate the year's finale with a picnic brunch and a swim in the dam.


Route details


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 Elephants 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


According to the SANParks website, Gate 1 opens at 7am. Please make your way to the car park at the dam as quickly as possible. We'll start running as soon as possible (hopefully by 7:20).

There is an entrance fee of R32 for SA citizens. Please bring your ID book.


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. This is a fairly flat route and very good for beginners. 


Relaxed Group


There will be a Relaxed Group. 


***Please let me know if you're keen to lead or join a brisk walk/hike. ***


Please bring:


A whistle, WATER (remember a trail 10km can take longer than a road 10km), 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.


Have a great week!

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Monday 16th December 2019 (06:30) - up India Venster down Diagonal - officially unofficial

hi all
we are planning an unofficial jaunt up India and down Diagonal on Monday 16th Dec starting at 06:30 from Kloof Nek car park (the upper one where the Sanparks hut is)

If you stay with me, it will be more of a hike, mostly due to the terrain, and also to do with my stuffed foot.
There are 2 sections that are a bit scary, but are quite do-able without ropes and helicopters.

We will go up the steps to the contour, left along the contour and pick up the India trail underneath the cableway and head up India, which tops out at the top of Platteklip Gorge.

From here there are many options..
You can choose to simply go down Platteklip and back to the cars, or wander round the back table for the rest of the day.

My plan is to head off towards Kasteels, but before reaching there take a right and go down Diagonal and back to the cars.

Any questions, email or phone..

cell:     +27 82 570 4405
