TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Table Mountain Trailers - Saturday 20th October 2018

Morning Trailers

This week sees us return to Silvermine North (the side where the dam is)

Gentle uphill warmup along the Riverwalk. Then across to the MTB carpark to
follow the trail along Steenberg Ridge ridge towards Elephants Eye. From there we
head to the Blackburn lookout spot. Then we take the Panorama trail to Noordhoek Peak. After the view point overlooking Noordhoek and Hout Bay, we connect back with the jeep track for a short distance and then follow the single track down towards the Dam
and back down the Riverwalk or MTB path to the carpark.

Rendezvous and start time
Meet at the Silvermine Gate 1 car park (immediately left after the entrance gate) ready to start running at 7:15am. The gate opens at 7:00am.

Please note: The entry fee is now R50 unless you have a MyGreen card. Remember to bring your ID book too. 

How to get there?  
Coming from Cape Town, turn right off Ou Kaapse Weg to Gate 1 Silvermine.

Terrain and distance
Single track and jeep track, some climbs. About 12-14 kms, taking around 2.5 hrs.

Medium group
The Medium group will follow the same route at a more modest pace. Or their leader may decide to take a shortcut.

Relaxed group
to be confirmed on Friday

What to bring

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top depending on weather.  Space blanket (Check it's condition please) ICE (In Case Of Emergency) ID - bracelet / tag, card in your backpack.

Our runs are pack runs and we will therefore regroup as necessary and leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own  

Please note K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.

Have a good week!

Warning:  Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running.  It may take place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.
Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed.  To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death.
