Good morning Everyone
· OTTER / RETTO TRAIL CHALLENGE ENTRY: Etienne Ralphs is selling a Retto entry: taking place 14,15 Oct 2012. Entry includes the accommodation asking price is R3 600 (Entry @R2650 and accom@R950).
Ettiene will cover substitution costs.
Contact detail: Etienne at 083 557 6995 or firstname.lastname@example.org
· NB!!! TABLE MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE SOLO SUBSTITUTIONS: I have it on good authority that substitutions for solo entries are now being allowed for a limited period only. You have until noon on Friday 7 September 2012 to process your substitution at a cost of R100. Check out the process on www.trailrunning.co.za . I know people enquired before and I told them subs were not being allowed, which was true at the time. But I have deleted all of those emails now. So if you are looking to sell your entry or you are still looking to enter, then please send me your details and we will create a little TMC Entry Secondary Market from Mon to Fri next week. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MARKET IS NOT FOR PEOPLE WANTING TO MAKE A FAT PROFIT FROM IT. THIS IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WANTING TO RECOVER WHAT THEY HAVE PAID. Please would you let me know if someone tries to rip you off. I have one name already from a previous complaint.
Ø But to get the ball rolling, Roger Ronnie has one solo entry available. If you are keen, give him a call on 0824631464 or email him on email@example.com .

OTHER SATURDAY TRAINING RUNS AND EVENTS
SAUCONY MATES / JOURNEY TRAILS MaTT 100 TRAINING RUN
I know it says February but Douglas means September. I know, I know, don’t try and rationalise, you’ll just drive yourself nuts. The reasons are contained in the insane ramblings in the prologue to the MATES club email. Trust me, just substitute September for February and you’ll be fine. You’ll have 10 -12 hours to discuss it with him on the run.

MOUNTAIN WARRIOR TRAIL RUNNING FESTIVAL – 1 & 2 SEPTEMBER 2012
For those of us who do most of our running on the Peninsula, here is the opportunity to break out and go and hit the Boland mountains and do something completely fresh. It is organised by Extreme Events (Pieter du Plessis) and is, by all accounts, a magnificent event which caters for most levels of trail runner.
Check out www.mountainwarrior.co.za.
Also at this event will be the launch of The Trail Runners Guide.
This looks like a MUST DO event. What a way to see in the Spring!!!!!!
ROOIKAT TRAIL RUN
At the McGregor Food and Wine Festival - 1 September 2012
19km and 8km runs - www.quantumadventures.co.za
SUNDAY 2 SEPTEMBER 2012
SAUCONY JOURNEY TRAILS / MATES TRAIL RUN
Again, just substitute September for February.
Sunday 2 “February” 2012:* We thought it might be cool to run from Noordhoek beach and check out a section of the coastline and also the Kommetjie Radar Station. At least Flippie did. It was his idea, so that makes him Dude of the Day.****
*Where: *Noordhoek Beach parking lot. As you come into Noordhoek from the Fish Hoek side, take the last road before ****Chappies Drive****called****Avondrust Circle****. Note that as a circle, it is also the second last road, but maybe consult a map or a GPS if you are unsure. Follow ****Avondrust Circle* ***for about 200 meters or so and take the first right. This takes you all the way down to the beach parking area. That’s us. In the parking lot.****
*When: *In time to start running at 07H30. Please note that there may be a traffic jam on Noordhoek Main drag, as the Camel Run is starting around there somewhere. Don’t kill any runners in your haste, we will wait for you.
*What: *The usual trail running stuff. Don’t bring any water, sea water tastes just fine and we will be crossing several rivers with an interesting blend of horse and human derived ecoli. Delicious! So really, leave your water behind. You won’t regret it. Honest. Also weather dependent kit and all that. Money – there are great breakkie spots not too far away. Or ICE cold beer if you want to rough it in the parking lot. A camera might be cool too, there are some excellent photo opportunities from the Radar Station.****
*Who: *We won’t be going very far or very fast, and I suspect if you can run 10 km’s on the road, you will be fine.****
*Distance: *About 18 km’s.****
*Duration: *We’ll see. Something like 2.5 hours?****
