Hi Trailers,

 

It's Puffer time again on Saturday and some of us will be assisting at the refreshment table just outside the gates of Cape Point Reserve. After we have packed up we'll be going into the park for a run from Buffelsbaai. For those not working in the cold and dark, you can meet us at Buffelsbaai ready to start at 7:30

 

Route
We start from Buffelsbaai and head south along the coast towards Cape Point, overlooking False Bay. After stopping at the Whale watching point we continue south for a short way before turning West and running north along the Atlantic Ocean to Platboom. A true 2 Oceans trail!

In order to get back to Buffelsbaai, we do need to run along tarred roads.

For those who want to avoid the tar and are happy to do car admin, the trail route continues along the coast to Gifkommetjie.

Rendezvous and start time
Meet at 7.20am
at Buffelsbaai (NOT Buffelsfontein information Centre) ready to run at 7.30am. 

After paying at the main gate, head south along the road for approximately 8kms before turning left to Buffelsbaai. Meet in the parking lot to the right.

 

NB: Little to no mobile reception so messages won't be received


Terrain and distance
Single track with tar roads at the end. Around 12km  

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.

R76 entrance fee for South Africans with ID, R303 for foreigners. Best option: MyGreenCard or Wild Card.

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!

Re: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 10th August 2019: Tygerberg Nature Reserve (R20 entrance fee)

Hi Trailers

Our run on Saturday os ON!  The weather looks clear and sunny but cold so dress in warm layers.

We are starting at the Welgemoed gate of Tygerberg Nature Reserve in Totius street. Remember R20 entrance fee

There are lots of paths for short cuts if required. Great views of Table Mountain and the Stellenbosch Mountains

Directions:

Once you have taken the Jip de Jager exit from the N1 (coming from Cape Town) and turned left, you cross over Uys Krige and the next left is Eksteen. There are brown nature reserve signs to the Reserve from Eksteen road which take you on a wriggly ride through the suburb.

After you turn left into Eksteen, turn first right into Bonsma, left into Saffraan, left into Goeweneur street, left at T junction into Trichardt street, left into Batavia street and right into Totius.

The reserve gate is at the top of Totius street. We'll  meet in the parking lot. Gate opens at 7:30am and we need to pay so will probably start running just after 7:30am

See you there

Dear Trailers,

Route
On Saturday we start once at Newlands Forest car park near the Helipad. We go up to the blockhouse, from there we take the lower traverse around the mountain and Oppelskop, up the zig zags along to Saddle Rock and continue on to the saddle between Devil's Peak and Table Mountain. From there we head to the spectacular Newlands Ravine to get back down to the picnic table and straight back down to the car park 

From the blockhouse, those that are keen and have no exposure problems can take Mowbray Ridge and go up to Devil's Peak and then meet the rest at the saddle before going down Newlands Ravine - dotted line on map. 

Rendezvous and Start Time
RV  in the Newlands Forest car park off Union Avenue (M3) at 7.20am to start running at 7:30 am
 
How to get there?  
The Newlands Forest/Firebase parking is off Union avenue between the traffic lights where you turn off to Kirstenbosch and the Rhodes Mem. off ramp. 


Terrain and Distance
A good climb up to the blockhouse, then undulating technical running on the lower contour before climbing up the zig zags to the saddle. After that a short climb to the top of Newlands Ravine, then good technical downhill to the cars.  Technical running on the mountain with some jeep track in the forest. Depending on route chosen this will be between 12km and 14km taking around 3hrs 

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. This group will probably turn around at the Blockhouse for a short route.

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.

Faster Group will follow a similar route with an extension decided on the day.
 
Relaxed Group will be confirmed on Friday.
 
Please Bring:  
whistle, water, a warm /waterproof/windproof top dependent on weather, space blanket and ICE (In Case of Emergency) tag or card

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.
