TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 25th Septebmer

 

Hi Trailers

 

This week we will so a run around the Constantia greenbelts.

 

Saturday 25th September   -  Constantia Greenbelts

 

Brief Description of Route

We will run the greenbelts, including the Alphen trail, Klaasenbosch Trail and the Diep River Trail.  An extra loop will be added in Ceclia forest to give some extra distance.

 

 Rendezvous and Start Time

RV at 06h50, ready to start at 07h00   in the Constantia Sports complex parking area.  Enter the sports complex (at the Brommersvlei/Constantia Rd intersection), and park on the left hand side as you enter. The parking area, as well as our route will be familiar with all K-way VOB members.

 

Terrain and Distance      

There will be a few ups and downs, some jeep tracks and some single tracks, but generally not much technical stuff – so ideal for newcomers.    Distance in the order of 14 kms, taking around 2hrs

I am sure there will be a relaxed group as well as a walking group – will confirm on Friday

Please remember to adhere to the COVID rules below:

  • No gathering in a big group at the start or end of the run.
  • All runners to carry a mask or buff.
  • Practice social/physical 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.

 

Have a great week.

Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed.  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: 1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety. 2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and 3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.

Hi Trailers

This Saturday we visit the Buffels Bay side of Cape Point, which was the start of our last organised run before lockdown hit us.

Route

We park at the lower parking and run along the parking road south along the coast until it becomes a path. We follow this path heading south along the coast until it meets up with the Hoerikwaggo trail.  We then turn along the Hoerikwaggo trail and run north back towards Buffels Bay, cross the tar road and head to the Buffelsfontein visitors centre and on towards Canonkop. Once we have reached the canon, we turn down and head to the old Lime kiln and back along the coast to Buffels Bay. This will give us a good 12 – 13km

For those that want a shorter run, they can skip the first bit and head straight to Bufflesfontein and Canonkop. This is about 8km

Rendezvous and start time

The park opens at 7am. The queues can be long so please arrive early. It is about an 8km drive from the gate to Buffels Bay  so we will start running at 7h30 am. Park at Buffels Bay lower parking – NOT Buffelsfontein info centre

Please remember your entrance fee:

  • R85 with SA ID
  • MyGreenCard - recommended
  • WildCard with letter

Terrain & Distance

The route is a mainly single track with a bit of tar at the start of both runs

What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. It is nice to swim in the pool at Buffels Bay after the run so come prepared.

Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear. Cape Point can be much windier and colder than the rest of Cape Town

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not allow dogs on its runs.

Please be aware that our runs operate under strict COVID protocols even though now on level 1. 

  • 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
  • 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
