Report back-Saturday 16th March 2013: Newlands Two Oceans 10Km Route

28 turned up for the start of our annual attempt to predict the actual route that will be used for the Two Oceans 10km Trail Run.

Yes the organisers do publish a map of sorts and do give a delightfully picturesque description of the route but as we have found over the years actually following them is another matter.

Despite a sudden burst of rain we got organised into our three groups and Michael set off leading the main group, myself the Recover Group and Fay her walking group.    Thereafter all I can say is that we all returned having, as is customary, got lost- yet happy that we did follow more or less something like the predicted route.  
To sum up: A good practice run over a route known for its treacherous roots,loose rocks and damp slippery bits.

Congratulations to Sam Brinkman who completed her 25th sortie and so is now eligible to wear the Table Mountain Trailers  Red Tee shirt
