RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 14 September 2019: Kalk Bay to Silvermine East via Cave Peak

Hi Trailers,


Next Saturday is promising to be overcast and cool with some rain forecast  for the Peace Trail runners on Sunday. Great running weather! We'll park at Kalk Bay station and wind our way up to Silvermine taking in some peaks at the same time. Lots of options for those who want shorter, flatter, hillier, longer routes


We start from Kalk Bay station and go up the steps to Boyes Drive. Instead of taking Weary Willie's, we turn left along the road until the Trappieskop route. Just after the saddle we take a right on to the single track that takes us to Cave Peak. After some easy scrambling up we run through to the amphitheatre. From there we take the Crassula path and head along single and jeep tracks towards Muizenberg Peak. Those wanting to bag another of the 13 Peaks can trot up to the top. After the descent, there are many paths (jeep track and single track)  to get back to Weary Willie's and back down to Kalk Bay.

Rendezvous and start time
Meet at
6:55am at Kalk Bay station (next to Cape to Cairo) ready to run at 7.00am. 

Terrain and distance
Single track and jeep tracks. Uphill start and then undulating in Silvermine. Around 12 – 14km depending on the route chosen 

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

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.

ImportantPlease 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. 


See you there!
