TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS: Saturday 1 June 2024: Lions Head Signal Hill circuit from Mouille Point (Green Point) lighthouse


Morning Trailers


This week I have chosen to do the Green Point/Signal hill run in memory of Dave Bywater, who has sadly passed away.  This was a route introduced to Trailers by Dave many years ago and has become a regular and favourite route.

Route details
We will run the route in an anti-clockwise direction.


From Mouille Point (Green Point) lighthouse, we warm up along beach road and head up Glengariff Road (please be mindful of traffic).  At the top of Glengariff we reach the trail, give our lungs time to catch up, and turn right to run above Sea Point. 

We follow the Lions Head Path all the way around the bottom of Lions Head, dodging the tourists as we pass the start of the Lions Head hiking trail to head back along the rump of the Lion, passed the Kramat to the 2nd parking area .

Here we can choose to "out and back" to Signal Hill lookout before turning down towards Bo-Kaap. Taking the first left and then right we find our way to the noon day gun, where we pause to take some pics with the "big guns" and of the view before continuing our way down the side of signal hill.  

We make our way back to the cars down side streets to run through Green Point park and return to the lighthouse (again please be mindful of traffic).

Rendezvous and Start Time:
RV at  the Moullie Point (Green Point) Lighthouse at  7.15 a.m. ready to start running at 7.30 a.m.

Terrain and Distance:

Mostly single track with some solid climbing and flowing running.  

Distance: approx 12-13kms taking about 2h30 mins Walking Group will be confirmed on Friday.

What to bring 
Water, appropriate clothes for cold, windy, or wet weather, a whistle, a space blanket, and your ICE information
Please check the weather before leaving home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear.

This is a pack run with regular regroups. We usually split into two or three pace groups. Group leaders will be indicated on the day. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no one is left alone. Remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to ensure the people behind you see which way you are going.   


Total Sports VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.


Have a great week.
