TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 14 November 2020: Newlands Forest

Good Morning Trailers

This Saturday we head to the forest to run a TMT version of the Baby Beast.

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the parking area Newlands Fire Base 06:25 ready to start at 06:30.

Route details

Meet at the Newlands Fire Base parking (not Forries).

We warm up by heading in the direction of Kirstenbosch Gardens and turn up near the boundary.  We won't head all the way up to the contour but stick to the lower trails as we head in the direction of the blockhouse. We turn back above hospital bend, taking the lower road above Rhodes Memorial and head back to our cars. 

Route may vary to the actual Beast route as the paths in Newlands Forest move often.

Please remember this a pack run, and its important that we look out for each other.  

Terrain and Distance

Mostly forest paths and some jeep track.  Previous map, profile & GPX of the race attached for reference.

Distance: +- 12 kms taking about 2 - 2.5hrs for Medium Group 

Relaxed Group to be confirmed on Friday.

*Please note adjustments to the route may be made whilst running depending on the group and weather conditions.

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.

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.

Please remember to adhere to the COVID rules below:
