MOUILLE POINT LIGHTHOUSE / SIGNAL HILL / LION’S HEAD
We head out to the Atlantic Seaboard this Saturday 25th February 2017 for our weekly run !
From the parking area at the Mouille Point Lighthouse, we make our way past Putt Putt and up Glengariff Road, on to the mountain. We turn right and head up along single track on the slopes of Signal Hill to the Kramat. We drop down slightly, then turn left along some more single track to the corner overlooking Bantry Bay and Clifton. We keep going anti clockwise with Clifton on our right along some lovely jeep track, until we head up a few steps to the trees, where we will take in the views of Clifton and Camps Bay. Some more single track as we work our way down to Kloof Nek Road, then cross the road and sprint the 300 metres to the Kloof Nek Traffic Circle. Then it’s left up Signal Hill Road for another 300 metres and on to the spine of Signal Hill Road and along past the Kramat, over Signal Hill Road, down past the Noon Day Gun, through the streets of upper Green Point, past the Cape Town Stadium, through the Urban Park and back to the cars.

Warning for all K-Way VOB Trail Runs: Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running. It takes 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.

Across Hout Bay beach to the start of Leg 1 of the Hout Bay Trail Challenge, up Karbonkelberg and down Suther Peak, left towards the wreck and then back along the single track to Sandy Bay. Up to the paved road above Sandy Bay, down into Hout Bay and back to the parking lot for a beer and a swim.
Unlike that other weekend trail running group Mates is an irresponsible Club. We will leave you to get lost up the mountain. But generally we get lost as a group, because the CEO knows nothing about direction.
• Take your own water and snacks. • All runners are welcome. • You need to be completely self-sufficient. Carry everything you will need on the day. This includes a basic medical kit, space blanket, whistle, windproof (waterproof if it is raining) jacket, warm headgear if it's cold or sun protection if it's hot. Charged cell phone with Mike’s number (082 319 7250) stored as well as the City’s emergency ops number (021 480 7700) and the SANParks Visitor Safety number (0861 106 417) programmed in. Just in case you need rescuing. • You are also responsible for your own water and nutrition. There is little to no water on the mountain and, for the roadies, there are no water stations. You MUST carry your own.
