TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: SATURDAY 12 JUNE 2021 - TAGGING PEAKS IN SILVERMINE EAST

Good day Trailers,

 

Please be aware of our runs under strict COVID protocols 

  • No gathering in a big group at start or end of the run
  • All runners to carry a mask or buff
  • Practice social distancing
  • We will break into small groups as per regulations while we run
  • No personal sign in – ensure the leader ticks you in/out. Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • We will monitor the groups on a weekly basis for size
  • VOB reserves the right to stop TMT if the COVID infections increase again in the Western Cape
  • If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms, please stay at home
  • If you are not comfortable with group running yet, you can use the maps to enjoy the routes in your own time

Route
This coming Saturday we are going to collect the peaks in Silvermine East.  Starting at Silvermine Gate 2 (aka the R5.00 gate).  This is the one on the southern (side closer to Muizenberg) side at the top of Ou Kaapseweg.  We will head straight down the jeep track and take the contour around to the Deadmans path leading up to Cave Peak, swinging around to the Amphitheatre at the top.  From the Amphitheatre we climb up and over to Spes Bona Valley.  From Spes Bona we tag Kalk Bay peak, Tartarus Cave and then head down to Nellies Pool.  Then it’s Muizenberg Cave, St James peak and across to the top of Farmer Peck’s Valley.  The strong and fit will then do Muizenberg Peak and head along the ridge towards the Lower Steenberg Peak where they will meet up again with the unfit and lazy (me) near the aerials.  Then we do the last big climb to the Higher Steenberg peak and Wolfkop before dropping down to the car park again.

 

11 – 12km.  There are short cuts available.


Weather

At this stage the forecast is for a cool start at 12 degrees, partly cloudy.

 

Rendezvous and start time
Meet at the Silvermine Gate 2 car park.  Opening time is 08h00 so we will aim to get started by 08h15 latest.  Please note that there is no cell phone reception in the car park so if you’re running late you won’t be able to let us know.

 

Please bring a tip for the car guard.

 

Terrain and distance
Starts off with nice gentle, downhill jeep track and then flat single track to warm up.  Thereafter it is mainly single track.  Short, sharp climbs and descents.  Nothing too technical and no terrifying exposure to heights.  Should take 2.5 hours.


Groups
This is a pack run with regular regroups.  We will split into 2 speed groups, if necessary, with leaders and sweeps on the morning.  But the main group will be the medium pace group as the leader has not been doing much running recently and will be leading from the back(ish).  Can’t promise a faster group.

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.  Cold drinks for the rehydrating session in the car park afterwards.

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.

Route
This coming Saturday we'll be getting our boots wet.  From Cecelia Forest parking lot, we will go up the first muddy section of the river, take a right, up a little muddy path to the cycle track and the contour above Kirstenbosch.  Along the contour to Skellies, up to the top.  It is going to be wet.  At the top take a right on Smuts track, left at the aqueduct, down the upper Disa river to the museum, across the dam wall, Ash valley, a bit of concrete, down Spilhaus Ridge, then Rooikat and back to the cars for a well-deserved refreshment.

 

There are lots of options to short cut the route at the top of Skellies.


Weather

At this stage the forecast is for a cool start at 14 degrees, some high cloud clearing to a BEYOOTIFUL day with very little wind.  There is no rain during the week, but I am hoping that there will still be some water coming down Skeleton.

This coming Saturday we'll be doing something different, showing the northern suburbs some love and heading to the Tygerberg Nature Reserve. Please note there is a R20 entrance fee for adults, R10 for students and R10 for pensioners with proof. 

Route
The park is not big but we will zig and zag our way around. We will start off dipping down to the right, looping through the Duiker path around the small dam and forest area. Then we head up to the Sentech transmitter which is our highest point. From there I may lean on Geoff to guide us around the long loop down and above Plattekloof. We may add a bit more depending on time and distance. All in all, it will probably be around 10-11km and about 2 hours max. 

Rendezvous and start time
The park only opens at 07h30 so meet at 07h20 at the main entrance parking lot, ready to run at 07h30. 
Parking lot is at the end of Totius Street, Welgemoed. 
Directions are a little complicated (but see below). Best use your GPS and allow 45 minutes from the southern suburbs.





Terrain and distance
Mostly single track and not very technical but can be super slippery as the paths are smooth and hard packed in some places.  

Groups
This is a pack run with regular regroups, we will split into 2 speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. 
The relaxed group will be confirmed on Friday

Hi Trailers,

 

Given that we've had some lovely autumn rain and are expecting more this week, I thought it'd be nice to go chasing waterfalls.

 

Overview: 

We'll be starting at Cecilia Car park and running through the cork forest towards Constantia Nek. From the boom, we take a hairpin turn and head along the contour path as far as the Spilhaus ravine single track, which we'll follow as far as the turn off to Rooikat ravine. From here we'll do an out-and-back as far as the Skeleton Gorge path and head back along the contour path.

 

The faster group may choose to continue along the contour path for an extra kilometre or two, or even take a climb up Skellies.

The Recovery group (pending confirmation from a Leader by Friday) will follow the same route but may choose to turn back at the bottom of Rooikat.

 

Terrain: 

We'll be on single track and jeep track for the first 4kms and the last, but the middle 4 will be steep steps/single track. 

 

Distance and time:

A total of just over 13 kms distance with ascent of approximately 350m. It's should take approximately 2 hours for the medium group to complete it.

 

Rendezvous:

Meet at the Cecilia Forest parking area at 6h55 for a 7am start. It's now quite dark at the start so you may want to bring a headlight.

 

Compulsory kit: weather appropriate clothing; whistle; water; ICE info; and silver blanket.

 

We regret that we do not allow dogs to join us, no matter how gorgeous and well-behaved.

 

See you there!

Lorraine

Saturday 15 May 2021 we head to the Republic of Hout Bay for a mix of trail and road.

Route details
Meet at the parking at the bottom of Chappies, by the Velocity Gym.

We warm up with a trot up the road to the start of the trail at East Fort. From the shortcut trail we join the jeep track until we get the split to the higher contour path where we may split into groups, those who don't like heights or don't want the steeper climb can continue along the jeep track.  We all end up at Blackburn Ravine and follow the contour path towards Chapmans Peak.  Along the single track we are treated to magnificent views (weather permitting) across the bay.
At approximately 7km we can decide whether to summit Chapmans Peak or head down to Chapmans Peak drive, popping out by the "ticket checker".  From here we have a leg stretch on the tar(approx 4km) back to our cars.

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

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the parking area 06:55 ready to start at 07:00.


Terrain and Distance

A mix of jeep track, single track and tar.  

Distance: +- 12 kms taking about 2h00 - 2h30mins for Medium Group (longer if we go up Chapmans Peak)

Fast Group
Will follow a similar route with a possible extension to be decided on the day.

Relaxed Group to be confirmed.

*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 12km can take longer than a road 12km), a warm & waterproof/windproof top, space blanket and ICE (In case of Emergency) tag or card.

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.
