Coetzenburg Cross Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 1A
Distance: 7km
Extremeness: Small section of technical single track with a headlamp...
Location: Coetzenburg, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel, Dirk van der Merwe & me

This morning we started in darkness (it was almost dark moon) and there was a chill in the air. It was also the perfect opportunity to test my birthday present to myself... the Petzl Tikka XP2 head lamp. We started with some smooth gravel road and then headed up bitterbult (bitter hill). We turned onto the contour gravel road heading towards the Coetzenburg Cross and then turned upwards to jog the upper contour route back to bitterbult. Finally, we cranked up the pace to finish in the Coetzenburg parking lot.
