A medium-sized group turned out for this sortie, including a number of first-timers to the group, - and one first-timer to trail running! The weather was clear and good, but with a sneaky cold breeze that was very noticeable in the more exposed places on the route. But, with a predominantly uphill first half to the run, the wind soon became less of an issue.
Faye and the walking group set off first, and after a few hick-ups with parking, the lead and recovery groups set out into the Silvermine valley and up to the contour path, where the lead group proceeded along the “dead man’s path” to the amphitheater and the recovery group did a slightly shortened route, mostly in reverse, also to the amphitheater. The 2 groups met at Kalk Bay peak, and again on the jeep track heading back to the parking. Here the lead group did a short detour in order for the 2 groups to finish approximately at the same time.
All in all, quite a tough run, but with great scenery & views, - and some really good and run-able single tracks.
