It was a stunning morning weather-wise, crisp, sunny and dry on Saturday, the last run of winter. The start was a good warm-up up the jeep track towards town to link up with the end of the first leg of the Table Mountain Challenge. The on to Heartbreak Hill which was as heartbreaking as ever but the waterfalls were stunning. Followed by a climb almost up to the King's Block House and then from the turnstile it was downhill. Some single track before the boardwalks that lead through the towering trees, passing the still abundant waterfalls and luscious verdant winter forest. The dappled sunlight through the trees and boardwalks was food for the soul. Once past the round table picnic spot, we meandered again on the jeep track towards Constantia Nek, but turned back towards the start.
There was a total of 20 runners, with two walkers and six in the recovery group. The main group consisted of only 12 runners - one of whom was a newbie we scooped up on the way! We were lead by the stalwart team of nifty navigators: Geoff, Gregg, Piero and Richard, and there was not one but five fearless sweeps: Dawn, Allison, Theresa, Cathy and Lorraine. Entertainment was provided in the form of interviews with Tom and the scooped-up Boodi.
The main group ran 12 km in 2h15.
