Paradyskloof Swamp Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 6A
Distance: 5.5km
Extremeness: Heat and falling trees
Location: Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Andries Heyns, Deryck Nel, Dirk van der Merwe, Wim Morris & me

On today's regular Friday run in Paradyskloof we ventured into the dreaded swamp. I did not expect the typical swampy muddiness given the recent summer heat-waves... so I was surprised to come out on the other side with wet shoes. For the remainder of the trail we followed our typical Friday route, clock-wise. However, about 1.5km before the gate we found a new single track and was, obviously, forced to jog down as fast as we could.
