Hi all Trailers!
This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but we will start from Theresa Ave in Camps Bay.
We start at Theresa Ave (see below for directions) 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, we will head to Tranquility Cracks. There are various options down, but the suggested route is down Corridoor.
We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 6.30am. Please arrive by 6.20am for sign-in and run briefing.
Terrain and distance:
This is mostly single track with a bit a of jeep track at the start and end. Some steepish climbs (😊) and descents, but well worth the views. The distance is 8km and there are ample routes for those who want extra distance.
Watch the Relive video of our route here:
Coming from town, pass the turnoff to the cable car and continue down towards Camps Bay, taking the 3rd road to the left (Fiskaal Road). Follow this road up the hill - it 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.
Remember to bring:
Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack.
This is a pack run so we are to look out for each other and ensure that the person behind knows we have turned.
We regroup frequently to ensure that everyone sticks together.
We will hopefully have three groups – fast, medium and a relaxed group. This will be confirmed on Friday.
Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our runs.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
For any queries, please whatsapp me.
