Hi Trailers

This Saturday we summit Devil’s Peak via the Blockhouse, Mowbray Ridge and the upper contour path descending via Newland’s Ravine

Route

We park at Newland’s Parking near the heli-pad and run up to the blockhouse. From the blockhouse we scramble up Mowbray Ridge (scrambling and exposure), take the upper contour round to ascend Devil’s Peak. We come down to the saddle and descend via Newland’s Ravine

For those that don’t like exposure or scrambling, Lorraine will lead a group from the blockhouse along the lower contour to Oppelskop and back

Rendezvous and start time

Park at Newland’s parking by 6h25am ready to start at 6:30am. Please arrive early – parking fills up fast.

Terrain & Distance

The route is  mainly single track with some jeep track. The Devil’s Peak route is around 12km and the Oppelskop around 10km (distances estimated!)

What to bring 

Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. The weather around Devil’s Peak can be very different to the paths below. Please come prepared for wind and mist.

Please check the weather before you set off from home and pack the appropriate waterproof/warm gear.

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not allow dogs on its 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

Warning:  Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running.  It may take place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.

Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed.  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.
