K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNS

 

LONGER DISTANCE GROUP

 

The jury is still out on whether or not we will have our own run.  After trying to run this last weekend, my ankle is clearly not ready for a run yet.  A decision will be announced later in the week after seeing how it responds to treatment.  Alternatively we can link up with Table Mountain Trailers who are doing a lovely route.

 

Watch for the notice later in the week.

 

 

 

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS (K-WAY VOB MEDIUM DISTANCE GROUP)

 

Run Notice – Saturday 05 July 2014: –  Kalk Bay Forest run – Silvermine south-east


This Saturday (weather permitting) we will re-run the route above Kalk Bay, and including the 2 remaining strips of indigenous forest in the Silvermine reserve.

Weather 24 forecasts heavy rain for Friday and Saturday, - so weather appropriate clothing (wind-cheaters, longs and beanies) is essential for this run. Will confirm the run closer to Saturday.

 

Brief Description of Route

From the Kalk Bay station parking in Main road, Kalk Bay, run up through Kalk Bay, crossing Boyes Drive and up the Oukraal path. At Weary Willy’s carry on straight up Echo valley through a small strip of forest, and veering right towards the Amphitheater. At the Amphitheater, turn left onto the Crassula path (as one would go to gate 2). At the first jeep track, the recovery group turns right, and carries on for about 1 km to the first single track that heads back up Kalk Bay peak. The lead group proceeds on the “old Fisherman’s Path to the next jeep track (at the river) and then sharp right onto the jeep track heading east. After about half a km, turn onto the small single track to the left, and carry on all the way to Junction Pool. Cross the bridge and head up the track up to Nellie’s Pool. At Nellie’s pool turn right onto the single track, and after half a km, cross a jeep track, - which joins the route of the recovery group. Proceed up Kalk Bay peak, past Tartarus cave and down into Spes Bona valley. Turn left and carry on down through a bigger strip of forest. As the next intersection, turn right and carry on down to a turn-off (to the right) to Weary Willy’s.  At weary Willies, turn left and carry on down to Boyes drive, and to the parking.

 

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the parking area on your left just as you pass the Kalk Bay station (if you are heading south down Main road from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay), - in time to start running at 07h30

 

Terrain and Distance

A tough start up Echo Valley all the way to the Amphitheater.  Thereafter, good and relatively easy single and Jeep tracks .   More or less 11 – 12 km taking in the region of 2 and a half hours (maybe a bit longer). 

 

How to get there?

Head south down Main road, past Muizenberg and St James to Kalk Bay. Just as you pass the Kalk Bay station, there is a parking area on your left.

 

Recovery Group

The recovery group will run over a slightly shorter route of about 8 - 9 km.

 

Fay’s Strollers.

To be confirmed.

 

Have a great week

FEEDBACK FROM LAST SATURDAY

 

Drama at last.  After nearly 6 years of formally being in existence, this is only the second time that we have we had to initiate a rescue mission for a runner.  We have had some nasty falls with one or two broken bones but this is only the second time we have had to call on SANParks to help out and actually get a vehicle to a runner in distress..

 

The first occasion several years ago bears repeating as it was a marginally more “amusing” than this one.  On that occasion we were traversing the Panorama Trail in Silvermine when a young lady turned her ankle badly.  I am trying to remember who it was.  Anyone wanting to own up?  I piggy-backed her down to the ring-road while Sian Bester sprinted off all the way down toward the Silvermine gate to try and get SANParks to come and fetch her.  Such was her hurry that she caught her toe on a rock and fell flat on her face as she approached the dam, removing lots skin in the process.  She successfully alerted SANParks and a vehicle came to fetch us with a bleeding, grinning Sian sitting in it too.  As we got into the vehicle we were horrified to see that there was far more blood on Sian than the injured runner.  All ended well though and at least Sian is still running.

 

But this last Saturday it was Phillip Gibb’s turn.  Phillip was gunning it down the path from Vlakkenberg into the saddle valley on the other side when he lost his footing on those uneven rocks and his world was turned upside down.  He went over horribly on his ankle and was in agony.  There was no immediate swelling but the pain was unbearable when trying to walk on it.  Okay I am talking like I was there, which I wasn’t.  I was drinking ICE cold be’erages in the car park at Constantia Nek (the rescue nerve centre / bar) with the usual rabble.  But we were very fortunate to have the highly medically-trained Jane Holdcroft with him who strapped him up.  It’s amazing how often all of those first aid courses that Jane attends have been called into play.  However, they still had to get him across the valley to the Mast Road from which he could be evacuated from the mountain.  So between Jane, Nick, Dawie, Katie and Kerry-Ann they supported him to the road.  Jane called me in order to contact SANParks to see if we could get a vehicle up to fetch him.  I was about to call SANParks when Charmaine, Flippie and Laurence (our sweeps) arrived in the car park.  As I related the details of the drama to them, Charmaine told us that her brother is friends with Phillip and has a car that is capable of getting up the very rough Mast Road from Tokai Forest.  So one quick phone call to her brother, Andrew, I think his name is and the rescue plan was in place.  He shot through to the Tokai Arboretum and explained the situation to SANParks who immediately obliged by opening the gate and a staff member guided him to the point of rescue. QED  A short while later, very pale-looking Phillip was ferried to Hout Bay car park which is where the rescue-centre / administrative hub / party had moved to in order to make sure everyone else was safely off the mountain – which they were by now.

 

So we were very fortunate that things went so smoothly and also that the weather was fine.  The main lesson is that it shows the importance of having someone with a cool head in charge who really knows what they are doing.  In this regard we were very fortunate to have project manager extraordinaire Jane to manage the situation.  A huge thank you to Jane and others mentioned above (including Charmaine and Andrew) for managing the process so swiftly and easily. 

 

Other important lessons learnt:

 

·         The importance of having the relevant phone numbers at hand.  Whilst we all should have the Mountain Rescue number, we should also all have the SANParks number for rescues which are not serious enough for Mountain Rescue.  At the main entrance to each SANParks Reserve they have a contact number for that area.  Try and make a note of it. The main SANParks emergency number is 0535612000.

·         Leading on from that, it is important to have the telephone numbers of the people on the run at a central point.  I did not have Phillip’s number on my phone and I don’t know if he had mine.  In this case it would have been useless because his cell phone battery was flat……….another lesson………fully charged cell phones on runs please.  He was lucky that Jane was there with my number and I was lucky that Charmaine arrived and had his number.  There was a fair bit of luck involved on Saturday.  We can’t always count on it.  WE WILL BE RE-IMPLEMENTING OUR RUNNER REGISTER FROM NOW ON.  PLEASE COMPLETE IT WITH YOUR CONTACT NUMBER AND AN EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBER BEFORE STARTING THE RUN EACH WEEK.

·         Finally, we all like to have a bit of a moan about SANParks, but when the chips are down, they have always responded extremely well for calls to help.  Let’s just keep this in mind next time we get grumpy with them.  Thank you to the Tokai SANParks officials for being so helpful.

 

So all ended well in the end.

 

Congratulations on your first Sailing Sandra Award (for the most spectacular fall of the run) Phillip.  We all hope that ankle recovers quickly.

 

Message from Phillip:  “……big thanks to Jane, Nick and the rest of the guys and girls that helped me out. Huge kudos for waiting for my lift to come. And very grateful for tape that Jane gave me - the pink tape (that thankfully was not photographed, lol) - and for having a physio in the group. You guys rock. Sorry that I did not get the names of everyone who helped out.  Thanks, Phillip”

 

 

 

Have a great week Everyone.

·         K-Way VOB Longer Distance Group – Legs 2 & 3 of Hout Bay Trail Challenge. 

Meet at Hout Bay Beach car park (Chapmans Peak end) to drop cars off at 06h45.  Then climb into as few cars as possible and drive up to the top of Suikerbossie (Ruyteplaats gates) for a 07h15 start.  About 20kms.  Pace medium to slow-medium.  Running time: 3.5 hours.  Remember to bring full winter trail running kit and equipment as well as plenty of water and energy snacks.  If you are

 ·         Table Mountain Trailers (K-Way VOB’s Medium Distance Group)King’s Blockhouse to Skeleton Gorge and back.

This week’s route takes us on a simple out and back above Rhodes Mem to the upper contour path, through the Newlands forest to the Skeleton Gorge turn off and back to Rhodes Mem. We last run it in August 2011 and it was approx 14kms taking 3 hours.

Rendezvous and start time
Rhodes Memorial parking lot ready to run at 7.30.

Route
From the Rhodes Mem parking lot looking at the mountain we take the top left path and go up. The path intersects with the jeep track but we keep going UP to the upper contour path to the turnstile just below the Blockhouse where TMC Leg 2 starts. Then we turn left and follow the contour path taking care not to take any turn offs up to Ravines or down to Newlands forest. When we get to Skeleton Gorge junction we turn around and come back. Simple.

Terrain and distance
About  +/- 14 km of not unreasonably arduous running along single track and boardwalks (may be slippery if wet).   Should take us around 2.5/3 hours.

Recovery Group
The recovery group will follow a slightly shorter route at a more modest pace. We will probably turn around at Newlands Ravine junction.

Fay's Walking Group
Please note there will be NO walking group this week and most probably until Spring.

Please bring:
Your own water and snacks
A whistle
Warm top (windproof or waterproof depending on weather)

All run details will be confirmed on Friday.

Hope to see you there!

ULTRATRAIL CAPE TOWN – 25 OCTOBER 2014

France has the Ultra-Trail Mont Blanc and Japan the Ultra-Trail Mount Fuji. Now South Africa has an event to match. Entries open today for the inaugural Ultra-Trail Cape Town, which at 100km with 4200m elevation gain and a cut-off time of 15 hours will be the most demanding race to happen in South Africa and one of the toughest in the world.  

The race, which takes place on 25 October 2014, will cover the iconic Cape Town landmarks of Lions Head, Signal Hill, Table Mountain, Houtbay, Llandudno, the Constantia Winelands and Kirstenbosch Nature Reserve.

The mastermind of the Ultra-Trail Cape Town and Summit Events founder, Nic Bornman, started planning the event over two years ago while living in Hong Kong. Whilst there he took part in and witnessed massive growth in the city’s vibrant ultra-trail running scene.  

“Trail runners are always seeking to cover more distance and to push their endurance levels,” explains Bornman. “As such, we believe that there is increasing emphasis on using trail running as a means of exploring and redefining what is possible for everyday people. Taking into account South Africa’s large community of runners who subscribe to this kind of thinking, there is a gaping hole locally when it comes to a large-scale Ultra-trail running event.”  

“Cape Town is consistently voted in the top three global destinations to visit and Table Mountain was recently inaugurated as one of the Natural Seven Wonders of the World, which is why it makes perfect sense to host what is anticipated to be South Africa’s largest Ultra-trail race in the Mother City.” 

The event will be broken down into three separate races, of which the two longer events have been graded and fully recognised by the International Trail Running Association. They are the main 100km Ultra-trail, the 62km Mountain-trail and the slightly more manageable 17km Urban-trail. 

The Mountain-trail race at 62km is not quite as challenging as the 100km race, but will still be aimed at fit and experienced runners who are comfortable spending a significant amount of time on their feet. The route has a 2900m gain and covers the same route as the Ultra-trail, excluding the Houtbay/Llandudno loop.  

Lastly, a 17km with a 900m gain, is the more manageable Urban-trail race, the route will cover some of Cape Town’s best known landmarks such as the Company Gardens, Greenmarket Square, the Bo-Kaap, Signal Hill, Lions Head and the lower contours of Table Mountain.  

The start and finish point for all three races will be at Cape Town High School in the city centre.  

“Cape Town is one of those unique cities where you cannot divorce the natural landscape from the urban environment,” says Bornman. “The route therefore weaves together Cape Town’s cultural, social and natural heritage. With the challenge of overcoming obstacles made up of the fabric of Cape Town’s iconic landscape, the stage is set for one of the world’s premier ultra-trails.”

SSISA WORKSHOPS (SPORTS SCIENCE INSTITUTE OF SA)

CONQUER THE PUFFER TRAIL RUNNING WORKSHOP

 

"CONQUER THE PUFFER" trail running workshop

Presented by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa in conjunction with New Balance & Modern Athlete magazine   

"Running in Heaven - feeling like hell" is the legendary PUFfeR Trail's race slogan. A more apt description is hard to find for the mother of all trail runs, which weaves its way pre-dawn from Cape Point over terrain of every kind, reaching its highest point at Maclear's Beacon (1085m). The route passes through large parts of Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage site and biodiversity hotspot. Its breath-taking beauty showcases some of the world’s most unique vegetation types which runners will struggle to forget once they reach the end of their journey at the Oceana Yacht club, some 80km and many hours and adventures later. Not for the faint-hearted or the untrained, this trail run had its beginnings in 1995, with a field of just 18 hardy souls. Just short of two decades later, 150 hopeful trail runners will take on the challenge and attempt to conquer the PUFfeR beast come race-day, 23 August 2014. 

Fish Hoek Athletic Club is the event organiser, and Race Director Andy Campbell annually goes out of his way to give runners an "experience of a life-time and a magical day in the mountains".  Teaming up with the 2014 event once again are Lipco Law for All, New Balance and the Sports Science Institute of SA (SSISA). 

SSISA, in conjunction with New Balance and Modern Athlete magazine – are hosting a workshop entitled "Conquer the PUFfeR" on Monday 30 June at 17h45. Prospective runners and aspiring entrants will have the awesome experience of listening to main speaker Andre Calitz – who is affectionately known as AJ. AJ has the honour of holding the 80km PUFfeR record in a time of 6:59:36 (first runner to run under 7 hours on the original, full-distance route). On top of holding silver medals for both Two Oceans and Comrades – he is also an All African Triathlon Champ, South African Duathlon and Triathlon Champ and a SA Cycling Champion.

AJ will share pearls of wisdom and some very practical and down-to earth advice; experienced mountaineer and talented trail runner, Leo Rust of Adventure Incorporated (www.adventureinc.co.za) will chat to us about gearing up for the challenge and coping in adverse weather conditions and Andy Campbell will use a fly-through to show us the majestic but arduous route and will keep us on the straight and narrow with race and kit rules. Registered SSISA dietitian, Sarah Chantler will be available during the question and answer session for your burning dietary-related questions. You will also be introduced to the “Fearsome Four”- who will be blogging and tweeting via Modern Athlete and SSISA about their PUFfeR training and how the SSISA experts are conquering their weaknesses etc.  leading up to the event.

The evening will end off with a lucky draw boasting an amazing array of Cape Union Mart vouchers – for all your trail running needs; Modern Athlete prizes, New Balance gear vouchers, memberships at the SSISA gym, stunning prizes from both BUFF and Led Lenzer, as well as the incredible prize of ONE free entry to run the 2014 PUFfeR! This wild-card entry will be linked to a competition on SSISA’s social media......watch this space. 

This workshop is NOT to be missed, and we recommend you sign up soon to secure your seat! The entrance fee is just R65 and includes light snacks, some notes, and access to the best info out there on the PUFfeR. And of course you get to mingle with fellow equally nutty trail runners of all calibres. Registration kicks off at 17h30, and a cash bar will be available.  

Visit www.webtickets.co.za/ssisa to book your ticket without delay - put it in your diary and we look forward to seeing you there!

A quick, rough guide to the Regular Weekly Trail groups in the first section of this email (K-Way VOB / MATES / CRAG / Celtics)

There seem to be lots of new faces arriving at the weekly runs and from feedback received it seems it would be useful to clarify some basics and also advise which groups are suitable for which runners:

  • The 5 groups referred to here are by no means the only clubs organisations that offer trail runs but these groups above are open to all runners, not just club members.  There may well be other clubs that do this but we are not aware of them.  If you are looking for a club to join though then we would love to have you as a member.  But It is not compulsory.
  • For these 5 groups, there are no fees payable for attending the runs.  They are free.  The only costs you have to pay is where we have to pay entry fees to a reserve.  These are for your account.
  • There is no insurance involved.  You run entirely at your own risk.
  • You don’t need to RSVP unless specifically requested.  You just rock up and run.  You may be required to fill in an attendance register at the run though.
  • You are expected to know the general rules of trail running and which kit to wear and carry for the different weather conditions.  If you don’t know then you must ask.

Which groups for which runners?

·         K-Way VOB Longer Distance Group:  Saturday mornings.  This group is for more experienced, fit trail runners who can do 20 – 25km of technical, tough, trail at a medium to medium fast pace.  See blog link below.

·         K-Way VOB Table Mountain Trailers:  Saturday mornings.  There are three pace groups – 1. Main Group is a similar pace to the Longer Distance Group but for 10 – 15km and with more regroups than the Longer Distance Group which makes it do-able for some of the slower runners. 2. Recovery Group is a gentler pace for 7 – 10km suitable for recovering athletes and novice trail runners. 3. A walking group – not a stroll, but a brisk walk which has been known to bring walkers to near heart failure.  See blog link below.

·         MATES:  Sunday mornings and some night runs.  Similar to K-Way VOB Longer Faster Group and often a little (or a lot) more hard core (extreme terrain) but definitely do-able for most experienced trail runners.  Helps to be a beer drinker.

·         CRAG / CSAG / CWAG:  Wednesday evenings.  A pack run that caters for most trail runners.  Not  what I would call a beginner runner group as you need to be able to do 10 -15km of technical trail with confidence but once you have some base fitness then this is one of the first groups you need to join.  Lots of experienced trail runners to advise you.  The running group has recently been split in two.  CRAG is the Faster Group and CSAG (Shufflers) is a slower running group.  CWAG is the walking group for a brisk walk on the mountains.

·         Celtics:  Thursday evenings.  4 – 5 Pace groups which cater for just about all speeds from slow to super-fast.  If in any doubt, start with the slowest group and work your way up over time.  A great place to kick off your trail running although you do need some base fitness (must be able to run 10km) even for the slowest group.

Each club / group has its own emailing list which you can join.   This email just tries to draw all of the info together for convenience.

Cheers

Tim
