Good Morning Trailers

Our route this week sees us return to an ol' faithful following the devastating fire in January.

Route details
From Mouille Point (Green Point) lighthouse, we warm up along beach road and head up Glengariff Road (please be mindful of traffic).  At the top of Glengariff we hit the trail, catch our breath, and turn right to run above Sea Point. 

Following the Lions Head Path, at the intersection below the Kramat we can decide whether to head over to Signal Hill or continue around to complete the Lions Head loop, returning to the Kramat.

From the Kramat it's a nice flowing run along Signal Hill ridge to the next parking area where we turn right to head down towards the noon day gun.  We pause here to take some great pics with the cannons and of the view before bundu bashing our way down the side of the mountain.  

Continuing our decent we make our way through the houses down to Green Point park and return to the lighthouse (again please be mindful of traffic).

Rendezvous and Start Time:  
RV at  the Moullie Point (Green Point) Lighthouse at 6:55am ready to start running at 7am sharp
Terrain and Distance:

Mostly single track with some solid climbing and flowing running.  

Distance: approx 12-13kms taking about 2h30 mins for the Medium Group

Faster Group will follow a similar route with an extension decided on the day.
Relaxed Group will be confirmed on Friday.
Please Bring:  
whistle, water, a warm /waterproof/windproof top dependent on weather, space blanket and ICE (In Case of Emergency) tag or card   
This is a pack run and for safety, please check behind you to ensure that the person behind is still there and that they see where you turn off.  Routes are subject to deviation on the day.  
Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our runs.
