RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 26 November 2022: Silvermine West: NB Entry fee R38 cash/My Green Card/Wildcard

Hi Trailers!

 

Our run tomorrow is ON.

 

Please remember your entry fee R36 and ID or Wildcard/MyGreenCard. I don't think they can process credit cards

 

Weather looks to be sunny but breezy.

 

There will be a walking group

 

See you there

Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 26 November 2022: Silvermine West: NB Entry fee R38 cash/My Green Card/Wildcard

 

Hi Trailers

 

Next Saturday the UTCT 160km run takes over every mountain in Cape Town, except Cape Point and the North. As some of the trailers will be helping with marshalling, I decided that the far North and South options wouldn't work. I've crafted a route in Silvermine West that allows us to run and also to see and support some of the 160km runners.

A walking group will be confirmed on Friday

Route

We enter at Gate 1 (dam side) and park immediately to the left of the entry hut. From there we take the jeep track to the left (aware of the race runners going across to Silvermine East crossing), passing the entrance to the river walk until we come to the cairn marking the single track to the right. We follow this single track, keeping right and then left at the cairn till we hit the jeep track coming down from Noordhoek peak. We turn left and run until the single track marking the entrance to Crassula/Amphitheatre path on the right. We run the Crassula path until we get to the jeep track. Again we need to be careful of the race runners. We turn right and run down the jeep track turning off to the dam (optional deviation down the jeep track to Elephant's Eye and Steenberg Ridge) and take the river walk back to the cars. (I can't tell from the map if UTCT runners take the River Walk – if they do, we'll take an alternative option back)

Rendezvous and start time

Officially the gate opens at 7am. Please come early so we can start running at 7h20. There is no mobile reception so we won't know if you're late.

Terrain & Distance

The route a combination of jeep track and single track.

The route is around 11km with added kilometres to Elephant's Eye and possibly Steenberg ridge – 14km

What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. Please remember your entry fee of R38 cash plus your ID /MyGreenCard/Wildcard!

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

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

  • Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • If you are not well, please stay at home

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Next Sortie - Sandy Bay Saturday 12 November

 

Morning Trailers

 

 

Our next run will be one of our most scenic routes. 

 

 

Saturday 12th November, Sandy Bay circuit, anti-clockwise direction

 

Rendezvous and Start Time

 

Meet at the brick-paved parking on Eustagia Way, opposite Brunia Way Hout Bay.  Ready to start running at 6h30.  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 thro' 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 run the route in an anti-clockwise direction.

 

The route starts with a short uphill on the brick paved road, then down to the beach and proceed onto Llandudno .  We then backtrack to Sandy Bay, enjoy the views and head southwards along the shoreline to OudeSchip Peninsula. You can spot the shipwreck Harvest Capella (1986).   It will not be low tide, but those that want to, may be able to get closer to the rusted shipwreck on the rocks. This will then be followed by a steep climb on gabion steps to Rocket (Mitchells) Road.  Once on the gravel road, we run until we take the left fork at the stone cairn and head back towards our cars.   

 

Sandy Bay has been a criminal hot spot, so for safety reasons we are going to run this as a pack run.  We will run in different speed groups, but we will all regroup

at the rocks at the end of LLandudno, and then again on the beach at Sandy Bay before heading onto the rocky shoreline.   Within your speed group, you will need to be sure that if you come to a turn, that the runner behind you has seen which way you go.  There will be plenty of opportunities for photographs so let's enjoy this as a social pack run.

 

Terrain and Distance

 

The terrain will include beach sand, jeep track (stony), single track, boulder-hopping and some steps to get the heart rate pumping.

 

Distance in the region of 11,5  km, with an estimated time of 2,5 hours, plus more to enjoy the view

 

 

Walking group:  To be confirmed on Friday

 

What to bring  – the usual, water, whistle, warm/waterproof top, sun block, camera, money for the car guard.  Make sure you have your emergency contact details on you.

 

Have a great week.

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.
