Hi Trailers

 

This Saturday sees us return to Cecelia Forest. 

 

Rendezvous and Start Time 

 

Cecilia forest parking at the top of Hohenort Ave just off Rhodes Drive.

Ready to start at 7h30.   Please come 10 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefing.

  

Route:

 

The exact route will be decided on the day, but we will start at the Cecelia forest parking and head up the jeep track.  We will do a loop on the contour path and then head towards the bottom of Skeleton Gorge.  Here we will turn around (unless you need more distance) and the at the 4 way signpost head up the stairs to Rooikat Ravine and towards Cecelia waterfall.  Once we are back on the contour path we will head towards Constantia neck for some more distance before making our way back to our cars at Cecelia forest.


Terrain and Distance

 

The route consists of gravel road, steps, and some single track.  The distance is likely to be 12 km in about 2 hours and more can be added if time allows. 

 

Groups:

 

We will split into groups on the day, and there are opportunities to extend or shorten the route.  Walking group to be confirmed on Friday

 

What to bring 

 

The usual buff/mask covid requirements.  Water, whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top depending on weather and your ICE information

 

Important: Please remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.   

Leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own

 

No Dogs  allowed on our runs .

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.

Hi Trailers

 

Tomorrows run is ON

 

Sunrise is at 7.48 am, temp of 18 degrees with a moderate breeze

 

Suggest you come early or share lifts because parking is at a premium.  It may still be dark for the start of the run, so a headtorch would be useful

 

Don’t forget money for the car guard.

 

Walking group confirmed

 

See you in the morning
