Hi Trailers,

 

Given that we’ve had some lovely autumn rain and are expecting more this week, I thought it’d be nice to go chasing waterfalls.

 

Overview: 

We'll be starting at Cecilia Car park and running through the cork forest towards Constantia Nek. From the boom, we take a hairpin turn and head along the contour path as far as the Spilhaus ravine single track, which we'll follow as far as the turn off to Rooikat ravine. From here we'll do an out-and-back as far as the Skeleton Gorge path and head back along the contour path.

 

The faster group may choose to continue along the contour path for an extra kilometre or two, or even take a climb up Skellies.

The Recovery group (pending confirmation from a Leader by Friday) will follow the same route but may choose to turn back at the bottom of Rooikat.

 

Terrain: 

We'll be on single track and jeep track for the first 4kms and the last, but the middle 4 will be steep steps/single track. 

 

Distance and time:

A total of just over 13 kms distance with ascent of approximately 350m. It’s should take approximately 2 hours for the medium group to complete it.

 

Rendezvous:

Meet at the Cecilia Forest parking area at 6h55 for a 7am start. It's now quite dark at the start so you may want to bring a headlight.

 

Compulsory kit: weather appropriate clothing; whistle; water; ICE info; and silver blanket.

 

We regret that we do not allow dogs to join us, no matter how gorgeous and well-behaved.

 

See you there!

Happy Friday!

Tomorrow’s run is on. The weather is looking great!

We may have to give way to the UTCT Special Edition runners around the Nursery Ravine area. Please do allow them to pass you smoothly and give them a round of applause!
