Hi Trailers,

This week's run is a favourite of mine for its run-ability (no climbing!) and beautiful ocean atmosphere. It’s a flat out and back from Noordhoek Beach to Slangkop Lighthouse, or wherever you decide to turn around.

Rendezvous and start time
RV in the main Noordhoek Beach parking lot at the end of Beach Road. Ready to start at 06:30.

Terrain and distance: Distance up to 14 kms depending on the distance before turning around, taking more or less 1 and a half to 2 hours. Hopefully on nice firm sand!

Groups: This is a pack run with regular regroups. We will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. 

What to bring: Water, whistle, warm/windproof top depending on weather, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

ImportantPlease remember to make sure the people ahead of and behind you are not too far awayThere have been reports of incidences on the beach that we wish to avoid but following the 'safety in numbers' theory. Leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left too far behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 


Walking group to be confirmed.

COVID BLURB:

We’re on level 1 so we can relax a little but please remember to adhere to the basic COVID principles below:

  • All runners to carry a mask or buff
  • Practice social distancing
  • If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms, please stay at home.
  • VOB reserves the right to stop TMT if the COVID infections increase again in the Western Cape.

See you all there!

Good Friday All,

Tomorrow's beach run is confirmed. Low tide is at 9.30am, so we should have some nice firm sand to run on.
The weather is looking a little overcast so don't forget to bring a warm top.  Maybe leave your hat at home though - it probably won't stay on your head in the 40km/h bracing wind!

There will be a brisk walking group too.

See you at the beach parking lot at 6.25am.
:)
L.
