This week we stay in Silvermine for our run but Gate 1 (dam side) - please note new Gate opening time now that we are heading into summer

There is an entrance fee of R35 for SA Citizens (think it’s cash only and remember to bring your ID), unless you have Wild Card or Green Card

Rendezvous and start time

First entrance to Silvermine on the right coming from Tokai. Gates to the reserve open at 7:00am but the queues can be long so get there early.  We'll meet at 07:15am at the parking to the left just after the gate, to start running as soon as possible thereafter.

Route
We head up the river walk until we reach the dam, take the trail to the right of the dam onward to Blackburn lookout. Our circular route returns via the Panorama path or Noordhoek Circuit route, and back down river walk to the cars.

Terrain and distance

This route has a bit of everything (jeep track and single track). 10-13 kms depending on what route we choose round the dam, taking about 2h30min.

Relaxed & Walking group: To be confirmed on Friday

Please remember to adhere to the COVID rules below:
  • No gathering in a big group at the start or end of the run.
  • All runners to carry a mask or buff.
  • Practice social/physical distancing.
  • We will break into small groups as per regulations while we run.

  • 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.

Dogs

Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 


Have a great week!
