TRAIL RUNS FOR THIS COMING WEEK

 

TUESDAY 30 AUGUST 2016

 

MATES TUESDAY TRAIL TIME TRIAL

 

To join Tuesday Trails from now on.

 
WEDNESDAY 31 AUGUST 2016

 

CRAG / CSAG / CWAG TRAIL RUN / SHUFFLE / WALK

 

Date: Wednesday 31 August 2016

 

Time: ready to go at 5.45 pm sharp

 

Leaders: Freda Walters (run), Geoff Nell (shuffle), Christo Steyn/AN Other (walk)

 

Location: Devil’s Peak / Oppelskop loop (see below, Directions)

 

Route description: From the start (see below, Starting point and Directions) we head up the well-known quad-busting slog of the Saddle Path zig-zags to Breakfast Rock (aka Saddle Rock); after a welcome breather we continue on the contour, dropping down to a lower level before the sprint to Oppelskop for the spectacular city bowl and Table Bay views; now we drop down to a lower contour for the long easy downhill back to the Saddle Path and the perilous (not really) descent to Tafelberg Road. Sunset is at 6.29 pm, so you must bring your headlamp.

 

Duration and distance: approx 90 mins, approx 10 km

 

Shufflers: Geoff Nell will lead a slower, more relaxed run, leaving from the same place at the same time, for the same approximate duration. Please note that the normal CSAG pace, whilst slower than the runner group, is intended to get the heart rate up and the lungs pumping, and provide a good work-out for those who, for whatever reason, don't run quite as quickly as they once used to. Shufflers are advised to bring/wear the appropriate kit (see below, Equipment).

 

Walkers: Christo Steyn/AN Other will lead the walkers on a BRISK walk, leaving from the same place at the same time, for the same approximate duration. Please note that the normal CWAG pace is quite fast — the walk is not intended to be a gentle stroll in the park; it will get the heart rate up and the lungs pumping, and provide a good work-out for those who, for whatever reason, don't run. Walkers are advised to bring/wear the appropriate kit (see below, Equipment).

 

Starting point:  Tafelberg Road (Saddle Path) (click for Google Maps)

 

Directions: Get to Kloof Nek via Kloof Nek Road from the city, or Camps Bay Drive from Hout Bay/Camps Bay side, and follow the Cable Car signs into Tafelberg Road, past the Lower Cable Station; about 2 km further there is a parking area under gum trees on the left, opposite the clearly signboarded Saddle Path, which is the starting point.

SATURDAY 3 SEPTEMBER 2016

 

K-WAY VOB LONGER DISTANCE TRAIL GROUP

 

NO RUN – PLEASE RUN WITH TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS

 

In fact there will be no Longer Distance Runs planned for at least the next two Saturdays.  I will be languishing in the Kruger National Park where you either don’t run at all or, when necessary, you run extremely fast (or at least faster than one other person).  I will be doing lots of the former.

 

It also means there will be no emails from me next week.  The Table Mountain Trailers emails and runs are completely unaffected by my absence.

 

 

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS

 

Our next run will be as follows – we will run it in an anti-clockwise direction

 

 

Saturday 3 September - Atlantic seaboard circuit – please note earlier spring start time

 

 

 

 

Route

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. 


Rendezvous and start time
We will meet at the Mouille Point Lighthouse, ready to start at 7.00 am

Terrain and distance
About  +/- 14 km, which should take us around 2.0 to 2.5 hours

Medium and Slow Groups
They will follow slightly shorter routes at more modest paces

Please bring
Your own water and snacks
A whistle
Warm top (windproof or waterproof depending on weather)

PS Bring some money along, and join us for coffee or breakfast afterwards at Caffe Neo – we are celebrating our belated 6th birthday of Table Mountain Trailers and I will be running my 200th Sortie with the group.

PPS Volunteers needed:  It is the K-Way VOB Grape run on Sunday 2nd October.  Table Mountain Trailers will be manning a water table at the 11 km point – location is outside Simon’s Restaurant in Groote Constantia.   Please email myself or Peter (p.d.n. rogers@gmail.com) if you are able to help.



Run Manager
Gae Tompkins (083 55 696 79)

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.

FAR AND WIDE SKY RUN 2016 - 10 DECEMBER 2016 (ZIMBABWE)

It’s that time of year again where we open up The Turaco Trail (www.turacotrail.co.zw), Zimbabwe’s iconic hiking trail to a very special type of person…. Trail Runners. 

Since this is the second year that we are running the event I am sure that I do not have to stress the importance of your training leading up to the run. Safety is so important on an event like this, especially in the mountains of the Eastern Highlands. A good training program helps ensure that you are safe out there.

Having said this registration for the 2016 Sky Run is now open - Please note that the race is on the 10th of December this year.

I have attached the information pack below. 

See our website www.farandwide.co.zw for more details; the registration form link and a downloadable PDF info pack.

To register please follow this link: http://goo.gl/forms/AU64cO6aAJVtdYB02

We are really looking forward to the Sky Run this year and know that you are too. Running through the mountains is an experience that not many get to experience in their lives. 

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the run.

I will be out of office until the 10th of July but will begin answering questions and sorting out the admin as soon as I get back.

This is your chance to get a team together if you are doing it as a relay or get yourself ready for what promises to be an awesome Far and Wide Wild Trails event. 

Please forward this email to anyone that may be interested in participating in the event this year.

RIFT VALLEY MARATHON – 18 MARCH 2017

A quick, rough guide to the Regular Weekly Trail groups in the first section of this email (K-Way VOB / MATES / CRAG / Celtics)

There seem to be lots of new faces arriving at the weekly runs and from feedback received it seems it would be useful to clarify some basics and also advise which groups are suitable for which runners:

Which groups for which runners?

·         K-Way VOB Longer Distance Group:  Saturday mornings.  All runners welcome.  Not just for club members.  This group is for more experienced, fit trail runners who can do 15km – 25km of technical, tough trail at a medium to medium fast pace.  For more information contact Tim Bellairs on tim.bellairs@gmail.com .

·         K-Way VOB Table Mountain Trailers:  Saturday mornings.  All runners welcome.  Not just for club members.  There are three pace groups – 1. Main Group is a similar pace to the Longer Distance Group but for 10 – 15km and with more regroups than the Longer Distance Group which makes it do-able for some of the slower runners. 2. Recovery Group is a gentler pace for 7 – 10km suitable for recovering athletes and novice trail runners. 3. A walking group – not a stroll, but a brisk walk which has been known to bring walkers to near heart failure.  For more info contact Peter Rogers (p.d.n.rogers@gmail.com ).

  • K-Way VOB Monday Evening City Bowl Group:  Every second Monday evening from Kloof Nek car park.  All runners welcome.  Not just for club members.  8 – 10kms and most paces can be accommodated.  Nothing too technical.  For more information contact Tim Bellairs on tim.bellairs@gmail.com .

·         MATES:  Sunday mornings, Tuesday Evening Time Trials and some night runs.  All runners welcome.  Not just for club members.  Similar to K-Way VOB Longer Distance Group and often a little (or a lot) more hard core (extreme terrain) but definitely do-able for most experienced trail runners.  Helps to be a beer drinker.   For more info contact Antony Murray on Anthony@proofcc.co.za .

·         CRAG / CSAG / CWAG:  Wednesday evenings.  All runners welcome.  A pack run that caters for most trail runners.  Not  what I would call a beginner runner group as you need to be able to do 10 -15km of technical trail with confidence but once you have some base fitness then this is one of the first groups you need to join.  Lots of experienced trail runners to advise you.  The running group has recently been split in two.  CRAG is the Faster Group and CSAG (Shufflers) is a slower running group.  CWAG is the walking group for a brisk walk on the mountains.  For more info contact Rod Prodgers at rodprodgers@icloud.com or Christo Steyn at trailrunner@sobonana.co.za or Ezan Wilson at ezanwilson@gmail.com .

·         Celtics:  Thursday evenings.  All runners welcome.  Not just for club members.  4 – 5 Pace groups which cater for just about all speeds from slow to super-fast.  If in any doubt, start with the slowest group and work your way up over time.  A great place to kick off your trail running although you do need some base fitness (must be able to run 10km) even for the slowest group.

Each club / group has its own emailing list which you can join.   This email just tries to draw all of the info together for convenience.

 

Cheers
