Good Morning Trailers

Hope you enjoyed the Heritage Day weekend!

We are almost in October (eek!) and with the September #Gone2Gone challenge wrapping up, we thought we'd do our own lite version of the first section.

Route details
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 catch our breath, then hit the trail turning right to run above Sea Point below the rump of the lion. 

Following the Lions Head Path, at the intersection below the Kramat we keep low and continue looping around the base of Lions Head returning via the start of the Lions Head hiking trail to the Kramat.

From the Kramat it's a nice flowing run along Signal Hill ridge to the next parking area where we turn right to head down towards the noon day gun above the City side (remember it's the first left as we head down the hill, unless you want to extend the distance and added vert).  We pause here to take some pics with the cannons and of the view before our slalom down the side of the mountain to Green Point.  

Continuing our decent down the stairs between the houses to and through Green Point park, we return to the lighthouse (again please be mindful of traffic).

Rendezvous and Start Time:  

RV at the Moullie Point (Green Point) Lighthouse at 6:55am ready to start running at 7:00am

Terrain and Distance:


Mostly single track with some solid climbing and flowing running.  

Distance: approx 12-13kms taking about 2h30 mins for the Main Group

Faster group will be determined on the morning.

Relaxed & Walking Group to be confirmed Friday.
 
Please Bring:  
whistle, water, a warm /waterproof/windproof top dependent on weather, space blanket and ICE (In Case of Emergency) tag or card   
 
This is a pack run and for safety, please check behind you to ensure that the person behind is still there and that they see where you turn off.  Routes are subject to deviation on the day.  

Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our runs.

Please be aware that our runs operate under strict COVID protocols even though now on level 1. 

  • 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
  • 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


Have a great week!
