acsis VOB TRAIL RUNNING: FRIDAY WRAP UP

Good morning Everyone

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENT – acsis VOB TABLE MOUNTAIN 16KM RACE – 9 JUNE 2013

 

Charlotte Kettlewell (acsis VOB Club Secretary) has asked me to let you know that there are still a few places available for the acsis VOB Table Mountain 16km Race on Sunday 9 June 2013.  This is a “road race” starting at Constantia Nek and follows the gravel / concrete road up to and around the Woodhead Dam on top of Table Mountain and back the same way.  If you have never done it then you really have to give it a try.  It is a WPA Event (so club colours or temp licence needed) and, like so few things these days, is 100% approved by SANParks.  It is also one of the oldest official events on the WPA calendar being about 36 years old.  For more info on entering, please contact Charlotte on vobsec@mweb.co.za or 021 761-8887.

 

 

THE TRAIL RUNS THIS WEEKEND

 

The acsis VOB Longer Faster Group Run will still happen tomorrow.  The Table Mountain Trailers will make a call on their run later this afternoon so look out for Allison Lamb’s email from Peter Roger’s TMT mailing list (which is separate from this mailing list).  I will not be able to forward Allison’s email to the general mailing list as I will be stuffing my face at Pepenero’s from lunch time on and thereafter celebrating Douglas Rossouw’s latest milestone………………so there could be hangovers tomorrow.  So if you want to be double-sure about TMT then email Allison on allisonlamb@telkomsa.net .

 

SATURDAY 1 JUNE 2013

 ·        acsis VOB Longer Faster Group Run  – 07H30 from Constantia Nek – route will be weather dependant – PROPOSED: Bailliff’s / Smuts Track to Maclears / Front Face of the Table and down to Echo Valley / Valley of Isolation / Valley of Red Gods / Dams / Ash Valley / Bailiffs and back to cars – 20km – 25km – 4 hours(ish) – It looks like we could be in for a fair bucketing and at 12 degrees it could be a bit nippy and wind about 30km/h gusting up to 45km/h it could be blustery – okay it could be pretty wild – so no sissies please (it’s nothing we haven’t faced before).  J  So please come prepared for extreme(ly cold, windy and wet) weather conditions and chafing (if you don’t have proper kit we may ask you not to run; for your own safety) – we may shorten the course if the weather is THAT miserable -  http://vobtrail.blogspot.com. 

 

Bring warm, dry clothes for afterwards as we will be sure to go and warm up in front of the fire at the Constantia Nek Restaurant after the run.  Maybe one beer too.

 

 

  ·       Table Mountain Trailers (acsis VOB’s Medium Distance Slower Group) – TMT will be making a call later this afternoon to announce whether or not their run will happen so please watch out for Allison’s email - 07h30 from the Old Zoo Parking area (just off M3 outside the gates at the bottom of the steep hill that leads up to Rhodes Memorial)NEWLANDS / CECILIA FOREST – about 11km – Recovery Group and Fay’s Walking Group will operate but over a shorter course – http://vobtrailwrg.blogspot.com/
