Re: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 14th December SILVERMINE CELEBRATION SORTIE

Good morning Trailers,

I'm sure we are all keeping our eyes on the weather forecast for tomorrow morning. I'm seeing the rain dissipating on the many websites I've looked at so let's hope they're right.

But irrespective of the weather, we'll see each other as close to 7am as possible  at the Silvermine dam car park. 

Don't forget your SANparks card, MyGreen card or R32 + SAID. 

Wear red or green -or both- for a bit of festive spirit and bring mince pies and something jolly to drink for a possibly damp picnic at the end.

Hi Trailers,


Saturday 14th December sees us meet for our last official sortie of 2019. We'll run one of our old familiar favourites, 3 Lookouts and a Peak, and celebrate the year's finale with a picnic brunch and a swim in the dam.


Route details


Starting at the car park nearest to the dam, we'll head towards the fire lookout over Tokai, meander towards Blackburn lookout and complete the circular route via Noordhoek Peak to the Noordhoek lookout. There are options to include the Panorama path, the Crassula Path, divert to Elephants Eye Cave and/or extend the distance with a jog down the River Walk. We'll organize group leaders and sweeps on the day. 


Rendezvous and Start Time


According to the SANParks website, Gate 1 opens at 7am. Please make your way to the car park at the dam as quickly as possible. We'll start running as soon as possible (hopefully by 7:20).

There is an entrance fee of R32 for SA citizens. Please bring your ID book.


Terrain and Distance


Single track, jeep track, and a little bit of  rock hopping. Depending on the group you join and the whim of the day, you'll run somewhere between 8 and 12km. This is a fairly flat route and very good for beginners. 


Relaxed Group


There will be a Relaxed Group. 


***Please let me know if you're keen to lead or join a brisk walk/hike. ***


Please bring:


A whistle, WATER (remember a trail 10km can take longer than a road 10km), a warm & waterproof/windproof top, space blanket and ICE (In case of Emergency) tag or card.


If you're staying for a Christmas picnic, please bring a cooler box with your favourite snacks and cool drinks. Invite your home family to join you and meet your trail family! 


Unfortunately we do not welcome dogs on our runs.


Have a great week!


Regards

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Monday 16th December 2019 (06:30) - up India Venster down Diagonal - officially unofficial

hi all
we are planning an unofficial jaunt up India and down Diagonal on Monday 16th Dec starting at 06:30 from Kloof Nek car park (the upper one where the Sanparks hut is)

If you stay with me, it will be more of a hike, mostly due to the terrain, and also to do with my stuffed foot.
There are 2 sections that are a bit scary, but are quite do-able without ropes and helicopters.

We will go up the steps to the contour, left along the contour and pick up the India trail underneath the cableway and head up India, which tops out at the top of Platteklip Gorge.

From here there are many options..
You can choose to simply go down Platteklip and back to the cars, or wander round the back table for the rest of the day.

My plan is to head off towards Kasteels, but before reaching there take a right and go down Diagonal and back to the cars.

Any questions, email or phone..

cell:     +27 82 570 4405
P.O. Box 15879
Panorama 7506

Good morning, good morning! The corrections are flying in! 
Gate 1 opens at 7am so we'll start running from the dam at 7:20 or as soon as possible after that.

Fwd: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 7th December 2019 - Constantia Nek/The Dams

Morning all!

We will be meeting at Constantia Nek ready to run at 7am tomorrow morning. Looks as if it's going to be a warm morning, so please make sure you have plenty of water and don't forget to put on sunscreen.

If you're staying for the MATES picnic afterwards, bring something to nibble/slurp. 

See you there!

Hi Trailers,

 

Can you believe it's December already? Where did the year go? This is our penultimate official run of 2019 and we've been invited to join MATES for their annual AGM and Christmas run/hike, so wear your best TMT gear and be prepared for a little rivalry and craziness… 😉

 

Route
The route, according to the CEO's instructional voice note, is as follows:

Starting at Constantia Nek, we'll be heading up the first set of steps to the jeep track, from there up to Constantia Corner, possibly via Agatha's Gulley and eventually to Camel Rock. There may be a little scrambling involved so, although the CEO assures me it is not a scary route, there will be an alternative for those not keen on heights/drops/base jumping.

Once at the top there are options to run around the dams and/or run straight back down the road. There's a part of the route that's described as 'wadda wadda' in the voice note. Should be interesting. 😊

Rendezvous and start time
The run starts at 7am
at Constantia Nek car park so please be there by 6:50am to sign in and sort out the groups. 


Terrain and distance
The usual lung-busting stairway-to-heaven start followed by a flattish run on single track and jeep track at the top followed by the helter-skelter concrete road down. Distance will depend on the route chosen and how keen you are to get back to base camp where the CEO will have the gazebo up and drinks and snacks ready. Best allow 2-3 hours.

Groups
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

Dogs
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.

If you're staying for some refreshments afterwards, you may want to bring something to supplement the CEOs beers. I understand there will be some wadda wadda picnicky snacks and even some *&^%$# stuff for the vegetarians.


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. 

  

Be there or be square…

Warning:  Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running.  It may take place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.

Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed.  To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.

By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that: 
1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety. 
2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and 
3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.
