Jonkers Elliote Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 6A
Distance: 16.4km
Extremeness: Five technical single tracks
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Corrie Erasmus, Deryck Nel & me

During today's jog we did five of our favourite Jonkershoek single tracks. We started with what we call the "peaceful" single track and then climbed further with part 2 & 3 of the Canary MTB trail. We then took the contour jeep track to the start of the Elliote MTB trail, which was only re-opened a number of weeks go. This was the first time I jogged the entire Elliote and it was really awesome. After linking up with the Jonkers circle route for a few hundred meters, we turned onto the technical (and fairly wet) single track in the middle of Jonkershoek. We finished the extreme jog with the Tedea single track...
