FEEDBACK: Saturday 29th November, Cape Point- Olifantsbos route

A smaller group turned out this weekend for the Cape Point run.  We met at the Olifantsbos parking on the west side of the point.  However, before arriving at the start, we were greeted by a herd of bontebok and an ostrich.

All groups set out from the Olifantsbos parking towards the beach and to the shipwrecks.  After the shipwrecks, we headed inland and a slight up towards Sirkel vlei.  From there, we headed back to the start along the Mimites ridge, a total of 10.3 km.

The main group complete the run in 1h 30min, the recovery in just under 2h and the walking group in just under 2h 30min.
