Hi all Trailers!

 

This week we will venture on a relatively new route for most - up Suther Peak on the Hout Bay side. 

 

 

Rendevouz

 

We meet at the brick-paved parking on Eustagia Way, opposite Brunia Way in Hout Bay.  We should be ready to start running at 7h00 – sunrise is 7h25, so 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 through 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 ascend Suther Peak.  There are sections which involve some scrambling, so for those who are not keen to attempt the climb, there will be an option to do another route along the Sandy Bay/Llandudno coastline to the shipwreck and back.

 

The terrain will include beach sand, jeep track (stony), single track, boulder-hopping and a steep climb.

 

There may be a walking group but this will be confirmed on Friday.

 

What to bring – the usual, water, whistle, warm/waterproof top, and some money for the car guard.  Some may need a headlamp for the first while.

Make sure you have your emergency contact details on you.

This is a pack run so we are to look out for each other and ensure that the person behind knows we have turned.

We regroup frequently to ensure that no one gets lost.

 

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.

 

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.   The weather looks to be a cool 18 degrees with some light rain, but of course, it is Cape Town and is likely to change by the weekend 😊

 

For any queries, please feel free to Whatsapp me.

Have a great week.

To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.

By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that:

1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety.

2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and

3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.

Good Morning Trailers

 

Our run tomorrow is ON.

It is going to be cool, so please bring appropriate clothing,  but according to my weather gurus, it looks like the rain will have passed by Saturday morning.

 

There will be NO walking group.

 

For those who will NOT do the climb up Suther Peak, there will be an option to do a very runnable route with Lorraine.

For those who choose to climb the Peak, we will do an extra leg of the route to add some distance, if time permits.

 

See you all tomorrow just before 7h00 to sign in 😊.
