This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but we will start from Theresa Ave above Camps Bay.
We start at Theresa Ave (see below for directions) and climb up to meet the pipetrack. From here we turn right and run along the pipetrack through Slanghole to the Oudekraal Ravine track. After a very steep climb up, we will head to Grootkop for some magnificent 360 degree views. There are various options down, but the suggested route is down Woody Ravine.
You can watch our route on the link below:
We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 7.20am for sign-in and run briefing. We will start running at 7.30am.
Terrain and distance:
This is mostly single track with a bit a of jeep track at the start and end. Some steepish climbs (😊) and descents, but well worth the views. The distance is about 12km and there are ample routes for those who want extra distance, or for those who need to cut it short.
Coming from town, pass the turnoff to the cable car and continue down towards Camps Bay, taking the 3rd road to the left (Fiskaal Road). Follow this road up the hill - keeping LEFT. It becomes Francolin Ave and then Theresa Ave. Parking at the entrance is limited so park along the sea side of the road as far as possible taking care not to block any resident' s driveways or entrances. Please ensure that your car is facing the correct direction.
At this stage, Saturday's weather looks very cool, with clear skies. No rain forecast. But this is Cape Town and many things can change between now and the end of the week! Hopefully the skies remain clear for the Grootkop views.
Remember to bring:
Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack.
This is a pack run so we are to look out for each other and ensure that the person behind knows we have turned.
We regroup frequently to ensure that everyone sticks together.
We will hopefully have three groups – fast, medium and a relaxed group. This will be confirmed on Friday.
Unfortunately VOB do not allow dogs to accompany us on our runs.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
For any queries, please whatsapp me.
