On Saturday we start once at Newlands Forest car park near the Helipad. We go up to the blockhouse, from there we take the lower traverse around the mountain and Oppelskop, up the zig zags along to Saddle Rock and continue on to the saddle between Devil's Peak and Table Mountain. From there we head to the spectacular Newlands Ravine to get back down to the picnic table and straight back down to the car park
From the blockhouse, those that are keen and have no exposure problems can take Mowbray Ridge and go up to Devil's Peak and then meet the rest at the saddle before going down Newlands Ravine - dotted line on map.
Rendezvous and Start Time
RV in the Newlands Forest car park off Union Avenue (M3) at 7.20am to start running at 7:30 am
The Newlands Forest/Firebase parking is off Union avenue between the traffic lights where you turn off to Kirstenbosch and the Rhodes Mem. off ramp.
Terrain and Distance
A good climb up to the blockhouse, then undulating technical running on the lower contour before climbing up the zig zags to the saddle. After that a short climb to the top of Newlands Ravine, then good technical downhill to the cars. Technical running on the mountain with some jeep track in the forest. Depending on route chosen this will be between 12km and 14km taking around 3hrs
This is a pack run with regular regroups, we will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. The relaxed group will be confirmed on Friday. This group will probably turn around at the Blockhouse for a short route.
Please note that K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.
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.
Important: Please remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.
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.
