K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNNING: CONFIRMATION OF WEEKEND RUNS

Hi Everyone

 

 

TRAIL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

WATER TABLE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AT K-WAY VOB CONSTANTIA VILLAGE 15KM ON SATURDAY 7 MARCH 2020

 

Volunteers needed for a water table at the 10km mark of The Constantia Village 15km road race organised by K-Way VOB on Saturday 7 March 2020.  The club has asked the trail running groups to organise one of the tables.  Sunday Stars is doing the one at the 5km mark.  Table Mountain Trailers (Gaeleen) and the Longer Distance Trail Group (Tim) will be organising the 10km mark table.  The 10km mark is in a new spot this year because there is a route change.  It is on the corner of Airlie Place where the runners will come off the greenbelt that runs between Airlie Place and Welgelee Road i.e. the greenbelt runs from Firgrove Way to Spaanschemat River Road.  So it's a nice, low stress spot and no marshalling is required.

 

What is required?  Be there at about 05h45.  We will fill coke cups for the runners and hand out water (and scream and shout).  Unfortunately this is not a plastic-free table and we will be handing out those plastic water sachets.  I am not a fan of these so the focus will be to ensure that runners use the bins provided.  Also, we will need to ensure that every speck of plastic (even the little corners the runners chew off) is picked up and binned.  All tables, bins, cups, water and coke are supplied.  So all we need is you.

 

If you are prepared to help out with a couple of hours on Saturday morning 7 March, please let me know (tim.bellairs@gmail.com / timbe@nedbankprivatewealth.co.za) or Gaeleen Tompkins on gaeleen@mweb.co.za .

 

Thanks.

 

Tim

 

 

Here are the runs for this weekend:

 

SATURDAY 15 FEBRUARY 2020

 

K-WAY VOB TRAIL RUNNING GROUPS (all runners welcome regardless of club or no club)

 

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

 

Saturday 15th Feb 2020 - Up Woody Ravine - Tranquility - Down Corridor

 

This week we go back up on to Table Mountain from the pipetrack side but we will start from Theresa Ave in Camps Bay. 

 

Route:

 

We start at Theresa Ave (see below for directions) and climb up to meet the pipetrack.  From here we turn right and run along the pipetrack to Woody Ravine. After a steep climb up Woody, we will head to Tranquility Cracks.  There are various options down, but the suggested route is down Corridor.

  

Rendezvous:

 

We meet at Theresa Ave in Camps Bay at 6.30am.  Please arrive by 6.20am for sign-in and run briefing.

 

Terrain and distance:

 

This is mostly single track with a bit a of jeep track at the start and end. Some steepish climbs (😊) and descents, but well worth the views. The distance is 8km and there are ample routes for those who want extra distance.

 

Directions:

 

Coming from town, pass the turnoff to the cable car and continue down towards Camps Bay, taking the 3rd road to the left (Fiskaal Road). Follow this road up the hill - it becomes Francolin Ave and then Theresa Ave. Parking at the entrance is limited so park along the sea side of the road as far as possible taking care not to block any resident' s driveways or entrances. Please ensure that your car is facing the correct direction.

 

 Remember to bring:

 

Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack.

 

This is a pack run so we are to look out for each other and ensure that the person behind knows we have turned.

We will have two groups – faster and medium.  THERE WILL BE NO RELAXED GROUP THIS WEEK.

 

Unfortunately no dogs allowed on our runs.

 

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

For any queries, please whatsapp me.

Trailers' guidelines here: www.tablemountaintrailers.org.za

 

K-Way VOB Trail Run Warning: Trail running is inherently more dangerous than road running. It may take 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.

MATES SUNDAY RUN

 

Start: 07:00 at Kloof Nek parking lot

Route: Best you dust off your new pair of trail running shoes in preparation for this week's training session... It's almost time for the Cat Run and this week we're training the route.

From the parking lot we follow the t*r up towards the bottom of Devil's Peak; all the way up until you tag the beacon - not the first one, but the SECOND one!! From there, it's a downhill sprint back to the road. Proceeding back, along the t*r, we'll continue to the bottom of Platteklip; slog all the way to the top, tag Maclear's Beacon only if you want to, return the same way and head back along the t*r until we reach the parking lot.

Distance: 17km (without Maclear's Beacon); 23km (with Maclear's Beacon)

Leader: It's a "race"...

Important Notes

Dress in weather appropriate and proper trail running gear. Must include a proper windproof (waterproof if raining) jacket. Carry plenty of water and energy snacks. You are running voluntarily and entirely at your own risk. If you run ahead of the group you will be deemed to have left the group and are on your own. Unfortunately, no dogs allowed. Bring plenty of ICE cold beers for after.
