Fwd: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 15th June 2024 - Constantia Nek, Rooikat, Cecilia Loop.

Hi Trailers,

See you tomorrow morning.

078 998 7687


This week we start from Constantia Nek, doing a loop past Cecilia waterfall, Rooikatkloof, Skeleton Gorge, Kirstenbosch Dam and back to Constantia Nek Parking. A nice runnable route of ±12km with 740m ascent.

  

Route details 

Starting from the Constantia Nek parking we take the first left up the single track which brings us up to the jeep track, keeping right on the jeep track we head up the concrete road for a bit before turning right again taking us to the single track which leads us past Cecilia Waterfall, up Rooikat and down to the contour path. Turning left we follow the contour path past Skeleton Gorge to the Y junction which leads up the stairs, here we will head down into Kirstenbosch making our way back past the Kirstenbosch Dam through Cecilia Forest and back to Constantia Nek parking.  

 

 All in all, it should be around 12km and about 2 to 2.5 hours for the relaxed group as we stop to admire the views and waterfalls. There are many options for a shorter or longer run.



The walking group will be confirmed on Friday. 

 

Rendezvous and Start Time 

Constantia Nek Parking (opposite La Parada Restaurant) at 7:20 am ready to start running at 7:30 am

The parking can fill up quickly, so I recommend arriving earlier. 


Terrain and distance

Mostly single-track and not very technical. ±12km, with 740m ascent.

Groups
This is a pack run with regular regroups, we will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps in the morning.

RE: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 8 June 2024 Cape Point - Olifantsbos and Sirkelsvlei

Hi Trailers

Weather looks good for running with a strong breeze.

 

Please ensure you're on time as we have no reception to get a message.

Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 8 June 2024 Cape Point - Olifantsbos and Sirkelsvlei

 

Hi Trailers

 

Next week we will explore the Cape Point Nature reserve from the start at Olifantsbos.  We will run along the beach to visit the wrecks and the climb up to the plateau to run round Sirkelsvlei.

 

Route

From the start at Olifantsbos parking we will run along the beach visiting various wrecks along the way. After the last one, we turn left to go up the hill to the plateau and run the flowing single tracks up there. At the junction, there is the option to turn left back to the parking for a short run or turn left along to SIrkelsvlei.  At Sirkelsvlei we turn left to run back along the ridge to the parking. At that point there is an option to run straight to get to the road for an out and back to add extra mileage

Rendezvous and start time

The Gate opens at 7am officially. We will plan to start running at 7h45am to give people time to get there. There is no reception so we won't know if you're running late

Terrain & Distance

A mixture of beach and  single track. Distances estimated.

  • The Sirkelsvlei run is around 10km
  • The short turn off is around 5km
  • The out and back can add up to 4kms depending on where you turn round

What to bring 

Appropriate clothes for possible misty, windy weather, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information

Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate gear, water and food.

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not allow dogs on its runs.

  • Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe
  • If you are not well, please stay at home
