Our run on Saturday is ON.
Weather will be cool to start, and a "plenty of sunshine" day, but this is Cape Town so please come prepared for all seasons!
There is a relaxed group tomorrow.
See you all there, bright and early. Please note the new summer time start😊
Hi all Trailers!
This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but start from Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 6.30 am.
It is October and the sun is up earlier!
We start at Theresa Ave and climb up to meet the pipetrack. From here we turn right and run along the pipetrack to Woody Ravine. After a steep climb up Woody, there are many options depending on time constraints. A longer distance option will be to come down Diagonal but for those wanting to keep it shorter can come back down Kasteelspoort and back down to the cars.
We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay (see attachment for directions) at 6.25am ready to run at 6.30am.
Terrain and distance:
This is mostly single track with a bit a of jeep track at the start and end. Some steep climbs and descents but the views are worth it. The distance is around 10km and there are ample routes for those who want a bit of extra distance.
Coming from town, pass the turnoff to the cable car at the Kloof Nek circle and continue down towards Camps Bay, taking the 3rd road to the left (Fiskaal Road). Follow this road up the hill - it winds up and around and becomes Francolin Ave and then Theresa Ave. Parking at the entrance is limited so park along the sea side of the road as far as possible taking care not to block any resident' s driveways or entrances. Please ensure that your car is facing the correct direction.
Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack.
This is a pack run with regular regroups, and we will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning.
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.
The relaxed group will be confirmed on Friday.
Please note that K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday !
