FW: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 25th Septebmer

Morning Trailers

Tomorrow's run is ON – we will probably have 3 groups

See attached proposed route.  Not sure how many will be joining tomorrow, so maybe try and familiarise yourself with the route.

We will do it in a clockwise direction - starting with the Alphen greenbelt and then the Diep River Greenbelt, which will take us onto Southern Cross Drive (about 5 km). 

 From here we will run up into Cecelia forest to the waterfall, take the left fork and make our way to Rycroft gate (Top Tap) in Kirstenbosch. 

We will then make our way down to Spillhause Avenue, and drop down into the Secret forest and Klaasenbosch Greenbelt, crossing over Hohenort Avenue and joining the Alphen trail again and back to the cars.

There will be a few sections of tar road between greenbelts, and generally not much technical stuff.

Distance:  Approx 12 km for main group, approx. 2 – 2,5 hours

Remember:  Wait at any intersections and check the runner behind you has seen the way you are going – it is a group/pack run

Relaxed group – Will do the same route with an optional shortcut at the 5 km point, and run the cycle track parallel to Rhodes Drive before popping out at the Cecelia forest parking, and then the secret forest and back to the cars

Walking group – The walkers will do a shorter version

What to bring:  Water, Whistle, warm/waterproof top, ICE details

 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.

K-Way VOB's Medium Distance Trail Group


Warning Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running.  It takes place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.  

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.
