Once again we have been given permission to resume our group runs 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

·         No personal sign in – ensure the leader ticks you in/out. Please carry emergency contact numbers in your bag or on your wrist/shoe

·         We will monitor the groups on a weekly basis for size

·         VOB reserves the right to stop TMT if the COVID infections increase again in the Western Cape

·         If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms, please stay at home

·         If you are not comfortable with group running yet, you can use the maps to enjoy the routes in your own time

 

Our next run will be one of our most scenic routes.  We are going to have to start early as parking fills up very quickly. Some of us haven’t run trail this year, so this run will be a relaxed run.

 

 

Saturday 20th February, Sandy Bay circuit, anti-clockwise direction

 

Rendezvous and Start Time

 

Meet at the brick-paved parking on Eustagia Way, opposite Brunia Way Hout Bay.  Ready to start running at 6h00.  Please come 10 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefing

 

Please be aware there is limited parking, so please try and share lifts with friends, or even park away from the area and walk to the start.  Please be considerate when parking your car.

 

Directions

 

Take the Hout Bay Main Road around the circle into Victoria Road, drive thro’ the robots and take the second road to the left into Edgar Road and second road on the right. Into Eustegia Way. Parking area on the left opposite Brunia Way.  

 

Route

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

 

The route starts with a short uphill on the brick paved road, then down to the beach and proceed onto Llandudno .  We then backtrack to Sandy Bay, enjoy the views and head southwards along the shoreline to OudeSchip Peninsula. You can spot the shipwreck Harvest Capella (1986).   It will not be low tide, but those that want to, may be able to get closer to the rusted shipwreck on the rocks. This will then be followed by a steep climb on gabion steps to Rocket (Mitchells) Road.  Once on the gravel road, we run until we take the left fork at the stone cairn and head back towards our cars.   

 

Sandy Bay has been a criminal hot spot, so for safety reasons we are going to run this as a pack run.  We will run in different speed groups, but we will all regroup (within Covid protocols) at the rocks at the end of LLandudno, and then again on the beach at Sandy Bay before heading onto the rocky shoreline.   Within your speed group, you will need to be sure that if you come to a turn, that the runner behind you has seen which way you go.  There will be plenty of opportunities for photographs so let’s enjoy this as a social pack run.

 

Terrain and Distance

 

The terrain will include beach sand, jeep track (stony), single track, boulder-hopping and some steps to get the heart rate pumping.

 

Distance in the region of 11,5  km, with an estimated time of 2,5 hours, plus more to enjoy the view

 

What to bring – the usual, water, whistle, warm/waterproof top, sun block, camera, money for the car guard.  Make sure you have your emergency contact details on you.

 

Have a great week.
