acsis VOB TRAIL RUNNING: SATURDAY 1 OCTOBER 2011 - BYE / NADA / ZIP

 

Good morning All

 

Well it looks like we are easing into our warm weather running season which presents the challenges of: getting up earlier for our runs, ensuring sufficient water and bringing out the sunblock. I am a confirmed cold weather running fan and really battle in heat.  But here is a tip I received a few years ago which I found helps enormously:

 

TRAIL TIP: (I’m sure it was from Mike Hart but I’m not entirely sure):  Acclimatise to heat slowly.  Over a period of a couple of weeks, take yourself for a few short-ish, easy runs in the heat until you start adjusting.  Out of desperation I tried it and it really seems to work.  In turn, Mike acclimatised to me ignoring his advice until it became clear that he was right and I eventually did what he said (with amazing results).  But I am sure many people have other ways of dealing with heat.  Let us know your secret.

 

This gives rise to our new feature in this trail running news email going forward: TRAIL TIPS

 

We noticed quite a few new faces at our run last Saturday.  So for the regulars, remember that there are many runners joining our groups who are new to trail running.  Even seasoned veteran road runners need advice on starting trail.  If anyone has a good tip on any aspect of trail running which you would like to share with other runners then please let me know and I will publish it in the news email. 

 

OTTER RUN / 3 PEAKS / SKY RUN TRAINING RUNS

 

As we are now in the taper period for Otter Run (this coming weekend) there will be a break from these runs .  We will recommence with a leg-loosener up Lion’s Head next Thursday (6 October 2011).

 

 

SATURDAY 1 OCTOBER 2011 – NADA YET, I’M AFRAID – BUT THE SHORT ROUTE SLOW GROUP IS RUNNING

 

This is one of two weekends between now and the end of October (the other one being 22/23 October) when we don’t have a trail run scheduled for the Trail Group, i.e. the group that has, somewhat flatteringly, been known as the Faster Group / Long Route. 

 

I am sure that MATES will have a run on this weekend as they return from Cederberg for the Hout Bay Triple Trouble.

 

The acsis VOB Short Route Slow Group, however, will continue to run.

 

acsis VOB SHORT ROUTE SLOW GROUP: SIMONSTOWN, KLAVER STEPS AND SCALA BATTERY – SATURDAY 1 OCTOBER 2011

 

Route
From the parking area we make our way up through the old part of Simon'sTown to the steps which lead up the mountain behind the village to the old naval signal school on the top.  Here we pass the grave of the famous Great Dane "Just Nuisance" and into the Marine Response Unit compound and out along the road which leads to Red Hill Rd.   We take a left for about 100m then cross the road and follow the Kleinplaas Dam trail, veer right, past Maylands and out onto the tar road which leads to Brooklands.  We go right, re-join Red Hill Rd and at the first U-bend turn into the Naval Scala Battery access road.   From there it is a downhill jog past the historical coastal artillery installations and old fortifications before we come out onto the main road which we follow back to the station and the parking area.

Rendezvous & Start Time
RV in the Long Beach parking area on the beach behind Simon'sTown Station.  Drive past the station and about 100m on your left you will see a road leading down to the beach - that's it.    Be parked and ready to start at 0700

Terrain & Distance

We start with slight up-hill along the main road past Admiralty House then it gets a wee bit more serious as we tackle the Klaver steps but the views across False Bay are stunning and well worth the effort.  From the top it’s a flattish run along the road and into the fynbos.   From the Scala Battery it’s an easy downhill jog back down to the main road.  Approximately 11 Kms and estimate will take about 2hrs 15 mins

Hope to see you all there  --Peter

REPORT BACK FROM THE NEWLANDS FOREST RAMBLE

 

Lots of new faces around in both groups so a big welcome to all of you.  We also saw the welcome return of Alison Chait to the trails after resting that wonky ankle for far too long.  This did result in some moaning from a fairly early stage in the run but I am ascribing this to the bad company she was keeping during the run.  Lots of complaining (and threats) coming from the rear-guard on the day.  But considering that these were all people who gave me a serious caning on the Table Mountain Challenge the previous weekend I was more than happy to ignore the complaints entirely, until the threatened to de-knight me.  I don’t even know if that is possible.  Is it?  In fairness to the moaners, there was less forest than anticipated and probably a few more hills.  So I maintain my reputation as a Big Ol’ Liar.  Sorry about that but thank you for relieving me of my Sweep Duties.  You did a great job.  In fact, we didn’t lose anyone (except Margaret…..nothing’s changed there) until you guys left six of us to tackle the last section on our own.  Within minutes we got separated and lost…….sigh!  We all made our way safely back to the cars and remedied the anxiety with ICE cold beer.

 

Note to all newcomers:  You will learn to treat the Monday email as a broad guideline, sometimes bordering on complete lies.  The most accurate aspect will usually be the Start Place, closely followed by the Start Time.  After that, matters start becoming subject to interpretation.

 

Sailing Sandra Award:  no noticeable evidence of falls (blood, tears etc) and no reports of falls.  Nicky’s little “sit-down” in the Hiddingh Ravine stream doesn’t count as there were no scratches and in all likelihood it was that 10kg pack that threw her off balance.  No award this week.

 

Missing Margaret Award: very tempting to award it to its namesake but apparently she did advise the Sweepers of her early withdrawal.  So instead, it is a joint award, going to Kathleen Shuttleworth and Phia O’Kennedy.  I must admit that it was fiendish delight that I saw them miss the turn off on the Heartbreak Hill descent and have to turn around and drag their grumpy followers back up the hill.  It gave me a rare moment at the front.  Well done Kathleen and Phia.  I think this must be a first for the two of you.

 

 

Details of OTHER GREAT RUNS FOR THIS WEEK will be sent out tomorrow.

 

Have a great week, Everyone.

 

Cheers

acsis VOB TRAIL RUNNING: SATURDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2011 - NEWLANDS FOREST RAMBLE

Description: vob logo with man.jpg

Description: trail running header header.jpg

 

Good morning Everyone

 

As TMC is not an official acsis VOB Trail Run we will leave that report to last (in very fine print).

 

 

OTTER RUN / 3 PEAKS / SKY RUN TRAINING RUNS

 

For several reasons we will be switching our runs around this week.  So this evening will be Lion’s Head and Thursday will be Devil’s Peak.  The reasons are as follows:

 

1.       We have an appeal to help look for Peanuts the hound who went missing on Lion’s Head on Saturday 17 September 2011 (see details below).

2.       There are probably going to be some tender legs (and egos) after TMC.

3.       We are going to do a relatively gentle run on Saturday 24 September 2011.

 

So for this evening, it is a 17h15 start from the Kloof Nek car park.  Please RSVP if you intend doing this.  For the record, I will be walking it, not running.

 

Thursday it will be Devils Peak, 17h15 start from the car park at the Saddle on Tafelberg Road.

 

 

SATURDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2011: NEWLANDS FOREST RAMBLE – NATIONAL HERITAGE DAY / NATIONAL BRAAI DAY

 

 

START TIME AND PLACE

 

07h00 from the Newlands Forest car park.  Where the helipad is and the VWS offices.  Just off Union Avenue, Newlands.

 

 

ROUTE

 

Still working on this but rest assured that I will be looking for the most runnable stuff but some hills and steps are unavoidable.

 

 

DISTANCE

 

About 15km

 

 

RUNNING TIME

 

About 2.5 hours

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES

 

1.       No chirping about TMC.

2.       This is potential mugger territory so please stay in groups and be alert.

3.       No chirping about TMC.

4.       Please make sure you are wearing the appropriate clothing for the weather and are carrying sufficient water and snacks.

5.       No chirping about TMC.

6.       Please sign the register before starting.

7.       No chirping about TMC.

8.       And finally, now that I have learnt the importance of hydration (from TMC, naturally), bring ICE cold beers for afterwards.

 

 

TABLE MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE FEEDBACK

 

No matter how often you eat it, humble pie always tastes just as bitter.  And no matter how often you brush your teeth, the only things that get that taste out of your mouth are time and laughter.  After a stunning Leg 1 and 2, the cramps kicked in like I’d been struck by lightning.  As if debilitating cramps weren’t bad enough……………….there were the comedians who were clearly enjoying this scene.   From Orange Kloof to Kloof Nek I was treated to that special brand of humour reserved especially for those who have recently been mouthing off about how strong and fit they feel.  I had five hours of third leg to plot my revenge and the list of offenders grew by the minute (sometimes by the second).  Things like: “I never knew fat could cramp”. “Oh, so I’M slow am I?”  and “We heard you had a good first leg!”.  There will be revenge.  And yet it was those very comments that hardened the resolve to finish, no matter what it took.  So thank you for all of your humorous observations.  They are funny in retrospect.  Nevertheless, there SHALL be a reckoning in due course.  But I definitely wasn’t the only one suffering out there.  I witnessed the funniest leaps, yelps and screams as runners cramped along the way.  From the top of Kasteelspoort to the Pipe looked like a nightmarish “end of the world” scene.  Broken spirits sitting and lying next to the path, gulping in water from the stream and pouring water over themselves.  And yet no-one was complaining.  Thank heavens that Kasteelspoort stream was flowing.  Without that there would have been a lot of people in a lot of trouble.

 

But just because a few of us had a bad day at the office doesn’t mean it wasn’t a fantastic event.  It was very satisfying to see most of the “usual suspects” of our Wednesday and Saturday Runs steaming along full of energy.  The Famous Bronwyn having a particularly fine performance, picking up a third in her category.  Very well done Bronwyn.  And well done to everyone who participated as well as to Trevor and his team for the great event.  There was an awesome vibe out there.  One day it will even be cool weather on race day.

 

 

Okay so here is the project for our Lion’s Head Run / Walk this evening:

 

 

PLEASE HELP US FIND PEANUT:

 

Peanut is an African Tails re-homed rescue.  On Saturday 17 September her family took her for a run on Lion's Head. As they reached the car park, a taxi came speeding up the road and it startled Peanut. She got caught in front of it and despite her dad's frantic screams and racing after her, the taxi didn't stop and kept on chasing Peanut all the way up the road till she finally veered off and bolted back up onto the mountain. They have been searching and calling and waiting for hours but there has been no sign of her. If anyone spots Peanut (she has a collar on, no tag, but is microchipped) PLEASE CALL US URGENTLY: 0836422805

Lots of puppy love and African Tail-wags

acsis VOB TRAIL RUNNING: SATURDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2011 AND SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER RUNS

Description: vob logo with man.jpg

Description: trail running header header.jpg

 

 

Good morning All

 

 

Another fantastic  Whale Run has come and gone; with pretty much zero whales in sight.  Not even a fake whale tail sticking out of the sea in Glencairn bay (like last year).  After a couple of beers we thought we saw something off Dixies but this cannot be confirmed.  We had just watched some very stressful rugby so anything is possible.  Either I am in rapid decline or that run gets tougher every year.  The sand on the route gets thicker too.  And I know that there were a few people who agreed.  There was some classic muttering and moaning.  But despite the sand (which I think was trucked in the night before by SANParks) it is one of those runs that is thoroughly under-rated.  Once one gets up onto the plateau, the views of the Peninsula are truly spectacular.  One just needs to pause to take them in.  You know it’s a tough run when even Douglas cramps at the end.  But the “Cramp of the Day” goes to Craig Campbell on the home stretch between Dido Valley Road and Dixies…….eina!  I almost cramped in sympathy.

 

It was also great to have the founder of the run with us.  Seamus Daly made a point of keeping us on the right track.  Even though I have run it several times now, it looks different every time and one gets tempted by all of the side paths………and Puffer tracks……..we’ll leave it at that.  Thanks for being there Seamus.  The Whale would not feel right without you.

 

Another few words of thanks.  Thanks to Roger for leading the fast group who had already shown us a clean pair of heels by the top of Black Hill.  Thanks to Douglas Rossouw for guiding and keeping the bulk of the runners together while I did the sweep.  He got a special mention from Seamus too.  Just a pity I never told him where I stashed the cooldrinks at the top of Red Hill.  Lesson learned for next year.  Glenn Buchinsky and Seamus for collecting the bags of drinks afterwards at the tops of Black Hill and Red Hill while I sat at Dixies pouring beer down my neck, waiting for the pain to go away.  I was very grateful for not having to schlep out to fetch them before the beer could kick in.

 

The Awards:

 

No Sailing Sandra contenders were named.  But let’s face it, if you fall on this run, just about the worst thing that can happen is a face full of sand.  Embarrassing (very) but seldom painful or dangerous.

 

Missing Margaret: No doubt at all who walks away with this award.  Douglas Rossouw: After seeing everyone safely through tricky mountain paths, he led a group of runners (correctly) into the little road to Dido Valley……….saw the gate was closed………….turned around (incorrectly)and led everyone down Red Hill road, thereby adding a few kilometres to the route (albeit very scenic and a more pleasant gradient than Dido Valley).  For failing to notice the pedestrian access off to the side of the gate and taking the runners on a weary walkabout, Douglas, please accept this Missing Margaret Award.

 

 

OTTER RUN / 3 PEAKS / SKY RUN TRAINING

 

Many people will be tapering for Table Mountain Challenge this week, myself included.  But if anyone is keen to do Platteklip Gorge this afternoon, please let me know as soon as possible.  If there is company, I may do part of it.  17h15 start from the Platteklip car park.  If no-one responds then in, all likelihood, I will give it a miss.

 

The same applies for Lion’s Head on Thursday.  RSVP if you are keen.

 

 

SATURDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2011: acsis VOB SHORT ROUTE – SLOW GROUP ONLY

 

As many of us will be involved in the Table Mountain Challenge, the only run from an acsis VOB Trail Group perspective will be the Short Route – Slow Group with Peter Rogers and Gaeleen Tompkins see below.

 

For a longer run, MATES will be organising a Saturday alternative to Table Mountain Challenge.  The details of this run will be sent out tomorrow.

 

ACSIS-VOB TRAIL Short Route-Slow Group Saturday 17TH SEPTEMBER

       Koeberg Nature Reserve

Route

We need to stay well away from the mountain this week to give the TM Challenge runners a clear run so we will try out a more or less circular route around the Koeberg Nature Reserve.

 

RV & Start Time

RV at the Koeberg Nuclear Station parking area ready to start at 0730.

Take the R27 West Coast Rd out of town, drive past Melkbosstrand and Duynefontein and turn left into the Eskom Koeberg Nuclear Power Station.  You pass through the security gate where you tell them you are going to the nature reserve. Carry on down the tarred road towards the two plump containment buildings, pass on your left the stores depot, the big building with square perimeter border in the Google earth satellite image below.  At the traffic circle you veer right to the parking area.  There is undercover parking available; these are the two white rectangles on the upper left of the image below.

 

Description: cid:part2.00090307.00000006@telkomsa.net

 

Distance & Estimated Time

About 11-12 kms of what will be level trails in the flat fynbos terrain with some sandy sections.  Estimated time in the region of 2hrs.

acsis VOB TRAIL RUNNING: ANNUAL WHALE RUN - SUNDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2011

Description: vob logo with man.jpg

Description: trail running header header.jpg

 

Good morning All

 

Facebook continues to boggle the mind.  I really wanted to put out a huge thank you to everyone who was there at the birthday run (second round) on Saturday and also to thank everyone who was involved in that very touching but slightly disturbing knighting ceremony in the car park at Kloof Nek.  Somehow only half of the Facebook message seemed to be published.  So I would like to tell you all that I was blown away by your kindness and effort that was put into it.  For those who couldn’t be there (at least one crucial member was sick) I do not doubt that it is all captured on the SANParks CCTV and a well-placed phone call could probably have it released to you and YouTube.  But the essence of what happened was that we had a “moerse opskop” in the car park to celebrate 3 years of trail running in the acsis VOB Trail Group.  But runners from all clubs and non-club members were there to help us celebrate by scarfing down snacks (thank you for all of these), beer, Vawter and bubbly after the run over from Hout Bay.  My knighthood was formalised in the car park in a nightmarish scene that can only be likened to Shakespeare on “acid”.  It is general consensus that, despite fierce competition from around the globe, Mike Ohlsson makes the ugliest queen in history.  I won’t bore you with the history of the knighthood but it all began with Sandra’s first email to me when she wanted to join the group.  It began:  “Dear Sir” ………of course that was the beginning of merciless teasing.  My knight’s ceremonial sword will hang proudly over the fireplace until Brigette sees it and then no doubt it will be found IN the fireplace.  The Glenfiddich 12 will be kept for the trail braai on the first Saturday after Sky Run (and then I will drink it alone).  Karen J, those biscotti were delicious but their fate has already been sealed (so much for trying to lose weight).  Thank you so much Everyone.

 

 

OTTER RUN / 3 PEAKS / SKY RUN TRAINING

 

Monday 5 September 2011

 

Devil’s Peak.  17h15 from The Saddle car park on Tafelberg Road.  Let me know if you are keen.

 

Thursday 8 September 2011

 

Lion’s Head.  17h15 from the usual Kloof Nek car park.  Let me know if you are keen.

 

 

acsis VOB TRAIL RUN SUNDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2011 – THE ANNUAL WHALE RUN FROM DIXIES RESTAURANT IN GLENCAIRN

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS A SUNDAY RUN THIS WEEK

 

This is a traditional annual run for us and it is a celebration of the coming of Spring and also the coming of the whales into False Bay.  The Cool Running Group (Roger Dickson) and the Sunday Stars (Pete Riches) will also be present (in addition to the Trail Groups).  This is a combination Road Run / Trail Run so there is something for everyone.  There will be two routes on the day.  I know the question will be asked so if you are choosing which shoes to wear on the day, go with the more comfortable road shoes as the trail section is not too technical (although quite sandy in places).

 

Route 1:               Road / Trail Combo Route

 

Start Time and Place

 

07h00 start from Dixies Restaurant, Main Road, Glencairn.

 

Where

 

From Dixies we run up the Glencairn Expressway (Black Hill).  At the top we turn left into the mountains and follow the sandy tracks and trails through the mountain, past the Kleinplaas Dam and then onto the tar road at the top of Red Hill.  We then follow the tar road down through Dido Valley and onto the Main Road and back to Dixies.  At Dixies we stick around for a breakfast (optional and self-funded, of course).  There is a little Rugby World Cup game on that morning (SA v Wales; the irony of the Wales game on Whale Run day should not be lost here) and we will be finished in time to dash home, freshen up and take in the game at your venue of choice.  Or watch it at Dixies.

 

Distance

 

About 20km.  Those wanting a shorter run can start at the top of Blackhill / be collected on the road at the top of Red Hill.

 

 

Route 2:               Sunday Stars All Road Route

 

Start Time and Place

 

07h30 from Dixies Restaurant, Main Road, Glencairn.

 

Where

 

Sunday Stars will do an out-and-back route along the main road.  Definitely a flatter option with a focus on getting close to the whales.

 

Distance

 

TBA

 

 

Report Back on last weekend

 

Another beautiful run under the belt.  It was great to take in that extra section from Farriers Way to Suikerbossie and it proved to be a timely reminder to all who are running Leg 3 of TMC that this section is not as flat as it appears on a map.  It was also nice to have a bit of a warm-up before hitting the steps of Hout Bay Corner.  As we were nearing the top of the corner, we looked down and saw some runners dashing along the contour path.  We were wondering if they were late-comers but only got our answer at Kloof Nek as David Fox came in hot on our heels.  Then I saw his text message……….got the complicated car admin and timing wrong……don’t make me re-introduce the Illiteracy Award…….hahahaha.  But well done for making up so much time to catch us at the end.

 

Missing Margaret:          If one was ever hoping to scoop this illustrious award, you will have to go a long way to beat this week’s winner.  Robyn Melnick rises head and shoulders above all other candidates for not even getting to the start by locking herself in the bathroom at home while getting ready to join us.  Snapped the key off in the lock!  But importantly, she still made it to the birthday celebrations afterwards.  Well done Robyn.

 

Sailing Sandra:                  Quite a bit of competition for this spot on Saturday.  Tim H-S had a minor stumble but there was not the requisite amount of blood to bring him through the qualifying rounds.  India did a remarkably quick, “oooffff…….I’m okay” right in front of me while climbing some steps on the Pipe Track.  The lesson she demonstrates here is that if you are going to fall then try and fall uphill.  Far less damage done this way.  But without doubt, the award goes to Bridget who (by all accounts) had fall that resulted in an analysis that you would find on an episode of CSI.  Runners were discussing the blood spatter patterns in some detail afterwards.  Even fellow runners were hit by flying blood.  Freaked them out a bit.  Thankfully no serious damage seems to have been done and she was smiling in the car park after the run.  In fact the general feeling was that Bridget was generally running so fast that the runners at the scene of the fall were actually rather thankful to be taking a breather.

 

That’s it for now.

 

Have a great week Everyone.

 

Cheers
