Hi Trailers!


This Saturday we return to Silvermine East for the first time this year. It's time to get back on to our well-loved trails


We meet at Kalk Bay station parking

From there we cross Main Road and go up the never ending stairs to Boyes Drive.  We cross Boyes Drive and go up Weary Willy's stairs. At Weary Willy's waiting spot we go straight up Echo Valley. At the junction at the top we turn left and right to follow Dead Man's path down and around Klein Tuinkop.

We continue along the jeep track and cross the top of the waterfall, turning right at the next jeep track junction. We run along this for a short while before turning left on to a single track which takes us to the jeep track at Junction pool.

We turn right and immediately left on to another jeep track, turning right on to single track after 500m. We cross the next jeep track and wind our way past Tartarus cave before turning down Spes Bona Valley, back to Weary Willy's and home .


There are a number of different routes and options so this is just a guide for a route around 12km. The groups will make their own democratic/autocratic decisions


Rendezvous and start time
Meet at
6:25am at Kalk Bay station parking to sign in. We start running at 6:30am


Terrain and distance
Single track and jeep tracks. Uphill at the start then flowing undulating running to get back

The route above is around 12km but there are options for longer and shorter options 

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!



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.
