K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNNING GROUPS
LONGER DISTANCE GROUP
NO RUN THIS WEEKEND: PLEASE RUN WITH TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS INSTEAD
TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS (K-WAY VOB MEDIUM DISTANCE GROUP)
Our April Fool's Day run will be a very sensible 11km route through Newlands Forest.
The OMTOM site has published a map of their 12km trail to be run on Good Friday, and we will attempt to follow it in our own fashion this week.Our run will be a kilometre short because we will start and finish in the car park at UCT, near the Old Zoo (but not the Old Zoo Parking itself!)
We'll set off with a gentle uphill warm up, past Mount Pleasant and into Newlands Forest. Following the Newlands forest jeep tracks on to the Orchards Trail, the route passes the Woodcutters ruins and enjoys kilometres of beautiful forest and streams as it meanders up to Woodcutter track. A pleasant descent sends runners through Avatar Forest and The Old Zoo.
Rendezvous and Start Time
We meet in the parking lot at UCT ready to start running at 6:45am. (Note slightly later start time.)
Take the UCT off-ramp and drive through the campus, exiting at the Newlands end. Park in the treed lot near the booms.
Terrain and Distance
The terrain is a mix of jeep track, single track and boardwalks. Distance 11 kms. We estimate the medium group will be able to do this in about 90 minutes.
Groups: Fast, Medium and Slower Group
Three groups to be confirmed on Friday. In theory, the fast and medium groups will follow the map above. The slower group will take the same route as the fast and medium groups at the beginning but short cut along the Middelpad (map to be provided).
What to bring
Water, whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top depending on weather.
Sorry - no Dogs.
Warning for all K-Way VOB Trail Runs: Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running. It takes place over uneven hazard strewn trails in exposed and often remote terrain where help is not always readily available.
Participation is voluntary and entirely at your own risk as although the organizers take reasonable precautions to ensure runner safety, it cannot be guaranteed. To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.
By starting out on a trail run you explicitly acknowledge that: 1] you understand the associated risks involved and accept full responsibility for your own safety. 2] you are medically and physically fit to participate and 3] are carrying the necessary water, clothing and safety equipment required for the particular run.
Have a great week Everyone.
