Once upon a time, before trail running, before Parkour, we hiked up various mountains in South Africa and ran down like crazy people… we called it Extreme Jogging. This blog is a tribute to the good old days, friends & family, my Creator and everybody that love running in nature!
Extremeness: Uphill & winter heat
Location: Helderberg, Somerset West, South Africa
Joggers: Only me
Today I went for a short & easy jog in preparation for the Lourensford run tomorrow. I started close to the gate and jogged to the bottom edge of the reserve. From here on it was an easy but long climb of just over 1km. I then followed the regular Yellow hiking route and ended with some splendid single track and the wooden pathways of the reserve.
At the top of the long climb... Hangklip in the distance
