Here there is an option to run out to the north and back again to get more distance if required or we turn west along the vlei and make our way back to the cars

Always beautiful running past the wrecks and then up to the vlei where we normally see bontebok, ostriches and turtles.

Cape Point weather is always different so please come prepared for everything.

K-Way VOB Trail Run 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.

MATES RUN – ANNUAL CHRISTMAS RUN + HIKE  (FOLLOWED BY THERE UNIQUE AGM) – SATURDAY 8 DECEMBER 2018

 

ALL RUNNERS WELCOME

 

The run and hiking group start at 07h00 at Constantia Nek.

 

The group hikes together up the first part of Constantia Corner and then around into Agatha’s Gully to eventually emerge near the top of the normal Bel Ombre / Constantia Corner path.  There is minimal exposure on the way up and a fairly easy scramble that one can avoid if necessary.  From there they follow the path to the De Villers Dam (for a swim if it’s hot) and Overseers Hut via Camel Rock.  Then they take the Puffer Path to Ash Valley.  Up Ash Valley to the Hely-Hutchinson Dam Wall.  Then follow the path through the arboretum in Nursery Valley to the top of Nursery Ravine.  Then take the Puffer Path back to the Overseers Hut.  Just past Overseers, turn left and descend Cecilia Ridge (or follow Tim down the easier direct route i.e. concrete road and short cuts) and head back to Constantia Nek via Cecilia Waterfall.

 

Probably not more than about 15kms with a very nice short cut available.

 

All done at a leisurely pace over a few hours to be back in time for MATES to start their parking lot AGM at about 10h00.

 

Bring the family and a picnic and come and socialise / meet some new faces and the CEO in person (always a treat).

 

See you all there.
