Hi Trailers,


Welcome to 2022! We're starting the year with a familiar and favourite route: Mouille Point – Lion's Head Loop.


Route details


From Mouille Point (Green Point) lighthouse, we warm up with a jog along Beach Road and head up Glengariff Road.  At the top of Glengariff, we catch our breath, then hit the trail, turning right to run above Sea Point below the rump of the lion. 


Following the Lions Head Path, at the intersection below the Kramat we keep low and continue around the base of Lions Head, returning to the Kramat. The stronger runners (who perhaps didn't indulge in as many mince pies as some of us) may take a climb up the Lion if they so wish.


From the Kramat, we enjoy a flattish run along Signal Hill ridge to the next parking area where we turn right to head down, running the jeep track above the Bo-kaap towards the noon day gun.  We pause here to take some great pics with the cannons and of the view before our slalom down the side of the mountain to Green Point.  


The final stretch takes us through suburbia to Green Point Park and return to the lighthouse.


Rendezvous and Start Time:  

RV at  the Moullie Point (Green Point) Lighthouse at 6:25am ready to start running at 6:30am

Terrain and Distance:


Mostly single track with some solid climbing and flowing running.


Distance: approx 12-13kms taking about 2-3 hours.


Group leaders will be determined on the morning – but there will definitely be a Relaxed Group AND a walking group. It's that time of year! 😉


This is a pack run and for safety, please check behind you to ensure that the person behind is still there and that they see where you turn off.  Routes are subject to deviation on the day.  



Don't leave home without:  

whistle, water, a warm /waterproof/windproof top dependent on weather, space blanket and ICE (In Case of Emergency) tag or card and sun protection.


Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our 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



See you there!
