TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 29 May 2021 - Tygerberg Nature Reserve

Good morning 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

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. 

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.  

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

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.
R20 entrance fee.

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. 

See you this weekend
