FEEDBACK Saturday 4th February: East Fort

Thirty trailers turned up for a route that has a little bit of everything – tar, jeep track. rocky single track, sand, a waterfall and a ‘don't look down we’re on the edge’ bit (with stupendous views). 

The Slow group had a 10-minute head start while we waited for people stuck in Lion of Africa traffic and they ran up Chapman’s Peak Drive from the beach to the East Fort turnoff. There they went up and up Blackburn Ravine and returned 2 hours later with a tough 8 kms under their belt. The Fast and Medium Group followed the same 12km route from the beach up Chapman’s and along the contour path to the cairn. Then down to Chapman’s Peak Drive again and the beach. Fast group did this in under 2 hrs and newcomer Alfred from Norway enjoyed himself so much he promised to be back next week. Medium group came in around 2h10ish, there was lots of the usual selfie taking and some lovely pics from Gae and Joanne on our FB page. A lovely run on a perfect cloudy, cool morning – magic! Thanks to Nora, Gae and Julian for leading.
