Hi Trailers!

 

This Saturday we return to Silvermine East for the first time this year. It's time to get back on to our well-loved trails

 

Route
We meet at Kalk Bay station parking

From there we cross Main Road and go up the never ending stairs to Boyes Drive.  We cross Boyes Drive and go up Weary Willy's stairs. At Weary Willy's waiting spot we go straight up Echo Valley. At the junction at the top we turn left and right to follow Dead Man's path down and around Klein Tuinkop.

We continue along the jeep track and cross the top of the waterfall, turning right at the next jeep track junction. We run along this for a short while before turning left on to a single track which takes us to the jeep track at Junction pool.

We turn right and immediately left on to another jeep track, turning right on to single track after 500m. We cross the next jeep track and wind our way past Tartarus cave before turning down Spes Bona Valley, back to Weary Willy's and home .

 

There are a number of different routes and options so this is just a guide for a route around 12km. The groups will make their own democratic/autocratic decisions

 


Rendezvous and start time
Meet at
6:25am at Kalk Bay station parking to sign in. We start running at 6:30am

 

Terrain and distance
Single track and jeep tracks. Uphill at the start then flowing undulating running to get back

The route above is around 12km but there are options for longer and shorter options 

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.

 

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. 

 

See you there!
Liz

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Constantia Village 15km Water Table

Hi Trailers,

 

If you haven't already signed up with Liz to marshall at the CV15 this year, there is still a fabulous opportunity to help out and become part of the crew.

 

Tim and Gaeleen are organising the 10km mark water table and would love to add you to their dynamic team. The date is Saturday 7 March 2020 and there will be no official Trailers' run that day to cloud your decision. 

 

The 10km mark is in a new spot this year because there is a route change.  It is on the corner of Airlie Place where the runners will come off the greenbelt that runs between Airlie Place and Welgelee Road i.e. the greenbelt runs from Firgrove Way to Spaanschemat River Road.  So it's a nice, low stress spot and no marshalling is required.

 

All you need to do to be part of the action is:

  • be there at about 05h45 – preferably in your TMT t-shirt 😊
  • fill coke cups for the runners and hand out water
  • scream and shout and remind them they only have 5kms to go
  • ensure that every speck of plastic (even the little corners the runners chew off) is picked up and binned
  • help pack away the tables and left over sachets, etc.
  • pat yourself on the back and go and have a well earned coffee.

 

Of course, there's nothing stopping you from heading off for a trot through the Constantia greenbelts or Tokai Forest after you've seen the last road runner plodding through the water table. You should be done and dusted by about 9am.

 

Please let us know if you'd like to be part of creating the coolest vibe!

 

Email: tim.bellairs@gmail.com; gaeleen@mweb.co.za, or simply reply to this email.

 

Thank you all.

Hi all Trailers!

 

This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but we will start from Theresa Ave in Camps Bay. 

 

 

Route:

 

We start at Theresa Ave (see below for directions) and climb up to meet the pipetrack.  From here we turn right and run along the pipetrack to Woody Ravine. After a steep climb up Woody, we will head to Tranquility Cracks.  There are various options down, but the suggested route is down Corridoor.

 

 

Rendezvous:

 

We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 6.30am.  Please arrive by 6.20am for sign-in and run briefing.

 

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 the views. The distance is 8km 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 park along the sea side of the road as far as possible taking care not to block any resident' s driveways or entrances. Please ensure that your car is facing the correct direction.

 

 

Remember to bring:

 

Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack.

 

 

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 everyone sticks together.

We will hopefully have three groups – fast, medium and a relaxed group.  This will be confirmed on Friday.

 

Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our runs.

 

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

For any queries, please whatsapp me.
