We started our run from the car park and Olifantsbos. We chose to run the shipwreck and Sirkelsvlei routes as one giving us about 10.5km.

After a few weeks (more like five or six) I finally managed to make it to a Saturday run. After a few minutes wait at the gate we all drove up to the boom, only to find our path to the dam blocked by a cycle race. Not to be put off - a quick change of plans (and route) found us parking at the lower car park.
A different route was agreed and we set off. A quick trot up the river walk,
along Steenburg ridge, right up to the look out and back down again.
A familiar but still fun route. The planned breakfast at the dam ended up being breakfast in the car park - thanks to the cycle race. Tim popped in to say high which was great, we don't often get to talk to the man behind the mails and VOB trail running.

Although it is now summer 17 of us set out in misty damp conditions on a gentle jog from the car park up to the ruins of the old East Fort. By this time three of our newcomers mistakenly decided to follow Gregg on the short distance run so as they high-tailed it off into the mist Galeen led the rest of us up the side of the mountain along the old manganese mine trail before we turned off onto the 400m contour path round to Blackburn ravine.
Top photo shows us re-grouping and taking a breather on the narrow path overlooking Hout Bay. By this point Pieter was so entralled by Fay's commentaries on the fynbos he decided to abandon us for the time being and join her walk group which were following on behind us.
