CELTICS SUMMER TRAIL RUN
This Thursday 1st March we meet at Newlands Forest for the Contour Path run to start at 17h45.
Meet in the parking area at the Newlands forest Parks Board office / helipad / firebase (the parking area is the main parking area off the M3 – 700 metres north of the big M3 / Blue Route intersection with Rhodes Drive / Newlands Avenue, and about 1.2kms south of the southern end of UCT).
We head up and left into Newlands Forest, initially following uphill jeep tracks for the first 2 km’s, before we reach a rusted sign pointing to “Contour Path”. We head up this attractive path which includes some steps and which will lead us up to the contour path. We then turn right heading along the contour path all the way to the turn-style below the blockhouse. As we reach the turn-style, we turn sharp right and head down a single track path, which after about 800 metres links up with the jeep track. This heads steadily down into Newlands Forest again, and back to the start.
Some characteristics of this run:
- The first 2.5 km’s are mainly steady uphill, with some steps, but all on great quality running surface.
- Once we reach the contour path, there are some technical rocky and stony sections along the contour path, particularly over the first km of this section. But most of it thereafter is 3-4kms of easy level running all the way to the turn-style below the blockhouse.
- When we turn down from the turn-style, the initial 800 meter downhill section is uneven and technical – ankle-roll territory – so watch your footing here and walk if you need to.
- The rest is easy flowing; smooth running downhill to the finish.
Difficulty grading: 7.5/10
Distance is ±9 km’s.
NB: PLEASE ALL DO YOUR BEST TO STAY IN YOUR GROUPS – MOST PARTICULARLY DO NOT RUN AHEAD OF YOUR GROUP LEADER. If you are new to the runs and unsure of the pace of the various groups, then rather run with a slower group initially. Thanks

10 MARCH 2012
HOW TO GET THERE:
Follow Kloofnek Road towards Camps Bay and close to the top turn right into Quarry Hill Road. At the T-junction turn left and then first right into De Hoop Avenue. The sports field is on the left. For secure parking turn right into Varsity Road (R10 per car).
2011 was the inaugural run of this annual event.
It is a medium-difficulty run, but with some steep inclines and declines.
No showers are available after the race.
Because the event takes place in the Table Mountain Nature Reserve (TMNP), participants must adhere to TMNP rules and regulations, which will be explained at the
compulsory race briefing.
The sports field borders onto Signal Hill and the entire race will take place in theTable Mountain National Park, a Natural World Heritage Site. A single track leads the way through the pine forest at the start. Near the Noon Gun participants will follow a steep jeep track with spectacular views of the harbour and the City of Cape Town. The track then takes runners across Signal Hill road to a refreshment station on the saddle of Signal Hill. The trail now ascends the contour path left around Lions Head all the way to the top. On your way down a marshall will show you where to descend towards Signal Hill [3Peaks route]. Runners will pass the refreshment station a second time before descending via the jeep track after crossing Signal Hill Road. You will return via a contour path through the pine forest to the finish on the sports field [the spot where you receive an ice cold beer!]
Duration: +- 2,5 hours
There will be a water, Coke and REHIDRAT at the refreshment station that runners will pass twice. You can also refill your water bottle here.
Cost: R100. We encourage companies/organisations/groups to patricipate in team colours. For each nine entries submitted together, a team will receive one free entry.
Prize giving: Prize giving will be at 9:30am. The first three runners will be eligible for prizes. All competitors will receive a refreshment at the finish. There will also be a lucky draw with some great prizes.
