Saturday 20th April 2013: Tokai Forest Scenic Route
Not much to report other than all groups had an enjoyable run with the Main Group covering about 14kms thanks to Thomas Andrew and Dave Bywater for leading them without going too far off track.
Sorry no photos received other than the two I took.
Last week both Chantal Illiffe and Paul Bruwer ran their tenth sortie so join the Decurions and become eligible for the Speed check in. Congratulations to both.
And this week congratulations to Jane le Roux who completed her 25th run and is now entitled to wear a our special Red tee shirt.

Saturday 6th April 2013: Silvermine NW Scenic Circular Route
This is Cape Town with its unpredictable weather! Having anticipated a fine autumn run along the scenic trails in Silvermine we arrived at the start in good time but in heavy mist and a sprinkling of light rain.
We sorted ourselves into the three groups as usual and Richard led out the Main group at a fine pace. Knowing we would soon loose sight of them they probably slowed down shortly thereafter.
Fay took her large walking group off next and that left the Recovery group to follow on. Once up on Steenberg Ridge our hopes were raised that the weather would clear as the sun came out and the cloud base lifted. But it was not to be and we continued to emulate Gorillas in the mist.
Main group coverd 11kms Recovery group 9kms and Fay's walking group 6ms

With thanks to Richard for so ably leading the Main group though the mist, Gae for sweeping to ensure no-one got lost and to Alan for the photographs.
