This week we will be starting from the Kloof Nek Parking -on the left just after the turn off to the cable car. Try and get there early in case it gets full. We will start running at 6h45am
From the car park, we run along the pipe track to Woody Ravine, up Woody and turn right to get to Tranquility cracks. After exploring these, we turn back along the apostles path and run to Diagonal Ravine for the descent. We may detour to explore the Valken Labyrinth at the top of Diagonal just for fun. At the bottom of Diagonal we turn right and return to the cars along the pipe track
Rendezvous and start time
Meet at Kloof Nek car park ready to start running at 6h45am. Please arrive early for check-in and safety briefing.
Terrain & Distance
The route starts and ends with flowing running along the pipe track and after that it is mostly single track with a climb up Woody and down Diagonal. It is around 12km.
An alternative descent is Kasteelspoort which is not necessarily shorter but it is easier.
A shorter alternative is to skip Tranquility Cracks and just do a round loop up Woody and down Kasteelspoort – around 10km
What to bring
Water (essential), whistle, a space blanket and your ICE information.
Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear. The top of the mountain can be a whole different weather pattern!
Please note that TMT unfortunately does not allow dogs on its runs.

To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.
By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that:
