This Saturday we return to Theresa Avenue to explore the pipe track, admire the newly renovated Corridor Ravine and visit Grootkop, where hopefully we will see the spectacular view. On the way back there is the option of visiting Tranquility Cracks.
There is a shorter option that avoids Corridor Ravine but includes Tranquility Cracks
We park at Theresa Avenue and climb up to the pipe track. We turn right and run along the pipe track to Corridor, hike up Corridor and turn right to run through to Grootkop. After ascending Grootkop for the view and photos, we return the same way but run past Corridor Ravine on to Tranquility Cracks and then along to Kasteelspoort and down
For those that don’t enjoy going through to Corridor, the shorter option is to run along the pipe track to Woody Ravine, climb Woody, turn right and go through to Tranquility Cracks and then return back along the track to Kasteelspoort
Rendezvous and start time
Meet at Theresa Avenue at the entrance to the Hike (not the end of the road) at 7h20am - ready to run at 7h30am.

Our run tomorrow is ON!
The weather looks clear with a gentle breeze, but it will be chilly up on the mountain so come prepared.
Lorraine will be taking the relaxed group on the missing link route starting from the end of Theresa Avenue – a flat route of about 12kms along the side of the mountain
The rest of us will be going up Corridor Ravine
See you there
