Saturday 21 August 2021 we head to the Republic of Hout Bay for a mix of trail and road.

Route details
Meet at the parking at the bottom of Chappies, by the Velocity Gym.

We warm up with a trot up the road to the start of the trail at East Fort. From the shortcut trail we join the jeep track until we get the split to the higher contour path where we may split into groups, those who don't like heights or don't want the steeper climb can continue along the jeep track.  We all end up at Blackburn Ravine and follow the contour path towards Chapmans Peak.  Along the single track we are treated to magnificent views (weather permitting) across the bay.
At approximately 7km we can decide whether to summit Chapmans Peak or head down to Chapmans Peak drive, popping out by the "ticket checker".  From here we have a leg stretch on the tar(approx 4km) back to our cars.

Please remember this a pack run led by committee, and its important that we look out for each other.  

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the parking area 07:25 ready to start at 07:30 (sunrise-ish).

Terrain and Distance

A mix of jeep track, single track and tar.  

Distance: +- 12 kms taking about 2h00 - 2h30mins for Medium Group (longer if we go up Chapmans Peak)

Fast Group
Will follow a similar route with a possible extension to be decided on the day.

Relaxed Group to be confirmed.

*Please note adjustments to the route may be made whilst running depending on the group and weather conditions.

Please bring:

A whistle, WATER (remember a trail 12km can take longer than a road 12km), a warm & waterproof/windproof top, space blanket and ICE (In case of Emergency) tag or card.

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.
