FEEDBACK: 3rd Dec 2016: Sunbird Centre To Kalk Bay

33 runners signed in at the start.

The Fast group were soon off at a cracking pace with Richard Rossiter leading the group down the gravel road through the Clovelly Golf course and up over Trappieskop into Kalk Bay with unrivalled views of the harbour. From there they started returning via Echo Valley, Spes Bona and Dead Man's Path covering  over some technical terrain. Distance covered 14km in 2h15.

The Medium group, ably led by Liz Brash followed them into Kalk Bay where they deviated by turning  towards Fish Hoek with panoramic views of the Fish Hoek beach and then descended into the Clovelly wetlands and onto the Fish Hoek periphery where they followed a single track to a very soft sand dune  leading back to the cars.  Distance covered 11.7km in 2h10.

The Slow group sneakily started at the parking area above the golf club and covered the area from Trappieskop, Kalk Bay and Clovelly for a distance of 6km in 1h30.

Apologies for the ultra-soft sand which had been desiccated by the wind and sun. (Next running of this route will before the South Easter starts pumping).
