A great start on midwinters day with a strong turn out of runners. The weather was surprisingly warm with no wind and full sunshine. The circular route went around the koppies behind Glencairn and Red Hill to the Kleinplaas dam and back.
Route and elevation
Much of the trail was on sand through through shallow, wide valleys and open fynbos veld. The trail was waterlogged in many places, which made for wet and muddy shoes the whole run.
The main group and recovery group covered 13.8 km and 10 km, respectively, in just under two hours.
Thanks to Piero for organising this run.
