Our run on Saturday is ON.
The weather looks to be overcast and cool with very little wind, but who knows… Please come prepared.
There will be a walking group
Remember your entrance fee/cards
Lorraine has a MyGreenCard with some available clips and is happy to clip for one or two people (with SA IDs) – please contact her if you would like to sign in on her card
See you there
After the hilly route this weekend, we will be exploring a flattish run in beautiful Cape Point on Saturday. Runnable with not much elevation and beautiful scenery. Both single track and tar(with a view…) – two different distances on offer
We park at Buffelsbaai parking (not the information centre) and run along the upper single track towards Cape Point continuing right through to the parking at Cape Point lighthouse. Detour to the lighthouse is an option. We cross the parking and take the single track to the right that leads down to Dias Beach (we can detour down there to visit). There is also a detour to a view spot before Dias Beach – well worth visiting. Back on the single track we run down to the road and take this along the coast. At Pegram's Point we get back on to some single track and run along the coast to Platboom. Here we turn up and take the road up the hill and back to Bufflesbaai. About 14kms – detour dependent
For those who want a shorter option, cross the first tar road and turn right at the next intersection (jeep track) and follow the track down to Platboom. About 10kms
Rendezvous and start time
The park opens at 7am. We will meet at Buffelsbaai parking (take road to left after the Buffelsfontein Information centre turn off) and start running at 7h30am.
There is no reception so we won't know if you are running late.
The entrance fee for SA citizens with ID is R90 or use a Wildcard or a MyGreenCard
Terrain & Distance
The route is a combination of single track and tar. Not much elevation and very runnable.
The planned route is around 14km and the shorter route around 10km .
What to bring
