TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 29th June -Noordhoek beach to Slangkop Lighthouse

Hi Trailers,

This week's run is a favourite of mine for its runability and beautiful muted landscape colours: a flat out and back from Noordhoek Beach to Slangkop Lighthouse, or wherever you decide to turn around. It looks as if we have another freaky Friday storm ahead but a calm Saturday morning, if windguru is to be believed. 


Rendezvous and start time
RV in the main Noordhoek Beach parking lot at the end of Beach Road. Ready to start at 07:30. Full sunrise will be at 7:52am but civil dawn is at 7:24 so it will be light and we'll watch the sun rise as we run along the hard sand at low tide.

(Fun fact: Civil twilight occurs when the Sun is less than 6 degrees below the horizon. In the morning, civil twilight begins when the Sun is 6 degrees below the horizon and ends at sunrise. In the evening, it begins at sunset and ends when the Sun reaches 6 degrees below the horizon. 
Civil dawn is the moment when the geometric center of the Sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the morning.)

Terrain and distance: Hard sand. Distance up to 14 kms depending on the distance before turning around, taking more or less 1 and a half to 2 hours.

Groups: This is a pack run with regular regroups. We will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. 

What to bring: Water, whistle, warm/windproof top depending on weather, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

ImportantPlease remember to make sure the people ahead of and behind you are not too far awayThere have been reports of incidences on the beach that we wish to avoid but following the 'safety in numbers' theory. Leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left too far behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

Relaxed group to be confirmed.

Walking group

We have had suggestions to start a walking group -dogs welcome- and it may be that we have sufficient numbers to make this viable now. If you are interested in joining a group of walkers, please send me your name and phone number. We will manage this subgroup via a dedicated WhatsApp group. 

See you all there!

Hi Trailers

Our run tomorrow is ON 

Route

The start is a good warm up on the single track shortcut across to the road to Rhodes memorial, then onto the jeep track that runs above the memorial. Continue around the side of Plumpudding hill and keep right where the jeep track splits (do not turn up to the top of Plumpudding hill)  Just after this there is an out and back to the right for those who want to see the Prince of Wales blockhouse. Returning to the jeep track, climb the zig zag road, but continue straight at the end of the second zig where you will find a single track on the left leading up to the Queens blockhouse which you should be able to see above. After visiting the Queens blockhouse, the single track continues climbing up and along towards the Kings blockhouse and joins the contour path below the Kings Blockhouse. There is a steep climb up to the Kings blockhouse and then back to the turnstile and along the contour path towards Newlands ravine. Depending on the distance you want to cover – continue along the contour path and choose one of the many routes back down to the start.

Morning Trailers

Our run tomorrow is ON

Rendezvous and Start Time

Meet at the lower Silvermine car park (first on the left after passing through the gate) at 08h00 in time to start running at  08h15. Please remember there is little or no signal there so we won't get any 'I'm on my way' type messages.
Coming from Tokai, it's the first entrance to Silvermine on the right. Turn immediately left into the car park after you've paid at the boom.

Route 
Gentle uphill warm-up along the Riverwalk. The faster group will head right at the MTB car park to head up the ridge towards Elephants Eye. The Medium group will follow the zig zags up to Blackburn viewpoint before being joined by the Fasts and taking the rocky route up to the Panorama path, or short-cutting along the jeep track. After Noordhoek Peak we connect back with the jeep track for a short distance and then follow the single track down to the dam and back down the Riverwalk or road to the car park.

Terrain and Distance
Mostly single track with a few short sections of jeep track in between.
Distance about 10-13kms, taking about 2h30, depending on short cuts.
