We had a nice turnout for the medium and slow group only.
We started out just after 7am as the sun was rising. It was the perfect weather for a run. We started out at Long Beach parking area and headed up the steep stone steps off Cableway Road via the quiet streets of Simons Town to the Just Nuisance grave. We then took a gentle run across the Red Hill road towards the Kleinplaas Dam where we had a bit of single track running. We rejoined Redhill Road and headed towards to the Scala Battery barracks. This is where the old WW2 9.2. inch guns are located. The first instalaltion was in March 1939 and the second was in October 1939. They were commissioned in 1940 after they were stripped and corrected for firing.
We made our way down the concrete road and ran the last strech along the beach back to the car park. The medium group covered approximately 11km and the slow group covered 9km, we finished within 2 hours.
