This week’s sortie will begin at Constantia Nek and see us running down the hill towards Hout Bay for a few hundred meters before taking the pipe track behind the houses of Bokkemanskloof Estate and into the mountains. We’ll head up the hill to the trail crossroads and take the path to picnic rock before turning northwards towards Constantia Nek again, via the path that skirts Silvermist wine estate.
The Faster group may extend their run by taking the contour path as far as the manganese mines. The Relaxed group (to be confirmed on Friday) will follow the same route as the Mediums at a more leisurely pace.

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. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.
By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that: 1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety. 2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and 3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.
