Happy Friday everyone! I trust any of you with British heritage you are feeling Jubilant today! 

Our run tomorrow is definitely happening. I will be wearing Red White and Blue!
The weather is forecast at 10 degrees and possibly a little damp. A bit like it usually is in the UK, which is very appropriate for this weekend!

See you in the car park at just before 7am. Bring headlights for the start as it'll be dark in amongst the trees.

Good Morning Trailers

It's high time we checked out those magical single tracks in Newlands forest again! 

Route details

We'll warm up by heading towards Kirstenbosch and turn up near the boundary.  We won't head all the way up to the contour but stick to the lower trails as we head in the direction of the blockhouse. We'll turn back above hospital bend, taking the lower road above Rhodes Memorial and head back to our cars. 



Please remember this a social pack run led by committee with plenty of opportunities for photographs, and its important that we look out for each other. Within your speed group, please ensure that if you come to a turn that the runner behind you has seen which way you go.  

Rendezvous and Start Time

Newlands Fire Base parking, ready to run at 7am.  Please arrive a little early for sign-in.

Terrain and Distance

A mix of jeep track, single track and some boardwalks.  

Distance: 11-12 kms  

*Please note adjustments to the route may be made whilst running depending on the group and weather conditions. Remember to check Friday's email just in case there are changes.

Please remember our group runs are under strict COVID protocols. 

 ·         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

Have a great week!



Warning:  Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running.  It may take 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.
