K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNNING: GENERAL TRAIL RUNS OPEN TO ALL


Hi Everyone

 

 

Lots of information here as usual.  Scroll through, select what you need and then delete. 

 

 

TRAIL ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED FOR PUFFER AID STATION – SATURDAY 17 AUGUST 2019

 

Every year K-Way VOB and MATES host the Check Point outside the Cape Point Gates (about 15km into the race).  This year will be our 10th year of organising this check point. Naturally, we need volunteers (about 15 should do 😊).  This is not a difficult or stressful station.  No road crossings.  Our main purpose is to ensure that all runners have left the National Park and we have developed a fairly stress free method of making sure all of the runners are out.  We also supply some food and drink to the runners but as it is early in the race, this is not a big part of the function.  The only real down side to the station is that it is so early.  Volunteers need to be there around 06h00.  But then we are done by 08h30ish.

 

After the last runner is through, we pack up the table quickly and head into the park (don't forget your Wildcard / Green Card) and do an awesome run which is now known as The Jeff Shapiro Run in loving memory of our running mate, Jeff, who was lost to us a couple of years back.

 

Anyone keen to assist, please let me know on tim.bellairs@gmail.com / 0823210299.  You don't need to be a MATES or K-Way VOB member to join in.  If you want more information, I have attached the comprehensive guide to what we do at the Check Point.

K-Way VOB will once again be hosting the Aid Station at Constantia Nek, as we have for several years now, under the guidance of Dave Waywell.  You don't need to be a K-Way VOB member to join in on the fun and action.  So if you are keen on joining this team then please specify this when you register on the link below.

WEDNESDAY 17 JULY 2019

 

CRAG / CSAG / CWAG TRAIL RUN / SHUFFLE / WALK

 

Date: Wednesday 17 July 2019

Time: ready to go at 5.45 pm

Location: Vlakkenberg, from Constantia Nek car park

Leaders: Nicola Steinhaus(run), Kate le Roux(shuffle), TBA(walk)

 

Route:  From the start at the Constantia Nek parking area (see below, Starting point and Directions) we cross the road towards La Parada and cruise gently along a jeep track towards Hout Bay while simultaneously shaking out the legs and shaking off the day's stresses. We skim quickly along a brief stretch of t*r before turning uphill and dodging off onto a footpath into the fynbos. We climb up, up, up (possibly pausing to have a Tarzan moment on a rope swing along the way) accompanied by the sounds of resident frogs. Gradually we find ourselves on the Vlakkenberg plateau without a speck of civilisation in sight. We follow the undulating single track heading back towards Constantia while taking in the views, before heading down a nice technical descent for a blitz back to the start, finally passing some vineyards and a small piggery before we head back to the road. Sunset is at 5.56 pm; please bring your headlamp.

 

 

Duration and distance: approx 90 mins, approx 8 km


Grading:
— 80% runnable 
— A1
— pack run

Shufflers: Kate le Roux 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 runners 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:  ANother 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: Constantia Nek parking area (click for Google Maps)

Directions: From the M3 (heading south or north), take the M41 Constantia/Hout Bay Main Road exit and head up to the Nek, or from the Newlands area take the M63 Rhodes Avenue past Kirstenbosch and Cecilia Forest all the way to the Nek. From Hout Bay, just head up the road to the Nek. Park under the pines across the road from the restaurant.

Equipment

— headlamps are compulsory,  please ensure batteries are charged, if in doubt bring spare
— water/energy drink munchies
— weather-appropriate clothing/gear: the long-range forecast for 6 pm would have us believe it's going to be clear, 14ÂșC, fresh breeze, 32 km/h north, north west.
— personal medication, if required
— something liquid for the post-run rehydrate session
— warmer/dry clothing for the rehydrate session
— whatever else you personally need for comfortable, safe trail running

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 organisers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed. To this end neither Chicks Who Trail 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.

 

 

FRIDAY 19 JULY 2019

 

THE VINE

 

No Run

 

 

SATURDAY 20 JULY 2019

 

K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNNING GROUPS (all runners welcome regardless of club or no club)

 

A:      LONGER DISTANCE GROUP

 

Here are the details of this ill-fated (so far) run.  Please watch for confirmation on Friday as the run leader is currently going down with a cold (Candi you're going to kill me).

 

Kloof Nek / India-Venster / Maclears Beacon / Smuts Track / Aqueduct / Dams / Old Railway Track / Margaret's Cairn / Corridor Ravine / Pipe Track / Kloof Nek.

 

Start

 

07h30 at Kloof Nek car park outside the SANParks Info Centre.

 

Distance

 

About 16km or 20km

 

Time

 

About 4 to 4.5 hours

 

Route

 

As above but with potential shortcut down Kasteelspoort instead of Corridor Ravine (which will reduce the route to about 16km).

 

Pace

 

Slow Medium / TT Packers pace / CRAG Shufflers pace.  This is not intended to be a fast run but speedsters can form their own group if they want.  Nor is this a hike / slow group

 

Important Notes

 

  • All runners welcome i.e. not just for K-Way VOB members.  But please note that this is not a beginner run.  It is for the more experienced trail runner. There is moderate exposure to heights / sheer drops on the India-Venster ascent (this section will be hiked).  Nothing that a normal fear of heights can't cope with.
  • Make sure you have sufficient water and energy snacks for the full time out there.
  • Proper, weather-appropriate trail running gear compulsory, including: hydration pack, windproof (waterproof if raining) jacket, fully charged cell phone, cap (or something to keep your head warm), whistle.
  • Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.

 

 

 

B.      TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS (K-WAY VOB MEDIUM DISTANCE GROUP)

 

CONSTANTIA NEK TO WINDOW GORGE

 

Our route this week is an undulating out and back from Constantia Neck.  A nice route for those new to trail running.

 

Route details

From Constantia Neck we head up the jeep track to join the upper contour path.  Following the flow of the mountain we continue passed Skeleton Gorge to the next down turn on the right.  From here we join the lower contour above Kirstenbosch Gardens and navigate our way back via Cecilia forest to the cars.

 

Rendezvous and Start Time:  

RV at Constantia Neck car park at 7:20am for sign in, ready to start running at 7:30am.  

 

Terrain and Distance:

 

Mostly single track and forest paths, interspersed with boardwalk and jeep track for good measure (and hopefully a waterfall or two).  

 

Distance: approx 12 kms taking about 2h30 mins for the Medium Group (depending on how many photos we stop to take)

 

Faster Group will follow a similar route with an extension decided on the day.

 

Relaxed Group will be confirmed on Friday.

 

Please Bring:  

A whistle, water, a warm /waterproof/windproof top dependent on weather, space blanket and ICE (In Case of Emergency) tag or card   

 

This is a pack run and for safety, please check behind you to ensure that the person behind is still there and that they see where you turn off.  Routes are subject to deviation on the day.  

 

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our runs.

 

Have a great week!

 

Regards

 Table Mountain Challenge - 1 September 

 

At 15 years old, TMC is adding a 15km Baby Trail run.
With more runners learning the trails, and the traditional TMC routes being a little extreme for novices,  TMC baby is for the first timers, or those that are not Olympian fit and taking things easy. It is not a flat Park run, there are decent hills, but the route is mostly Jeep track, making it easy to follow, and easier to run on than the Upper mountain trails.

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:

•             The 4 groups referred to here are by no means the only clubs organisations that offer trail runs but these groups above are open to all runners, not just club members. There may well be other clubs that do this but we are not aware of them or they are not open groups. If you are looking for a club

join though then we would love to have you as a member at K-Way VOB. But It is not compulsory.

•             For these 4 groups, there are no fees payable for attending the runs. They are free. The only costs you have to pay is where we have to pay entry fees to a reserve. These are for your account.

•             There is no insurance involved. You run entirely at your own risk.

•             You don't need to RSVP unless specifically requested. You just rock up and run. You may be required to fill in an attendance register at the run though.

•             You are expected to know the general rules of trail running and which kit to wear and carry for the different weather conditions. If you don't know then you must ask.

 

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. 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. Faster 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. Medium Pace Group is a gentler pace for 7 – 10km suitable for recovering athletes and novice trail runners. 3. Relaxed Group – walk the uphills, run the downhills and toss a coin for the flats.
  • Tuesday Trails:  All runners welcome.  4 groups:   Packers – Social (Slow Medium), Ideas – Medium and off-beat / salty, Old School – Medium Fast and Snakes - Fast
  • MATES: Sunday mornings and some night runs. All runners welcome. Not just for club members. Three groups:  Fast (properly fast), Medium (Fast Medium) and KaK Group (Medium to Slow Medium) - more hard core (extreme terrain) than most groups but definitely do-able for most experienced trail runners. Helps to be a beer drinker. For more info contact Michael Ohlsson on 0823197250.
  • 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 Erich Minnaar at erich.minnaar@tcm.co.za.
  • Celtic: Thursday evenings. All runners welcome. Not just for club members. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO RUN 10km IN 65 MINUTES. 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
