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!
Location: Lion's Head/Signal Hill, Cape Town, South Africa
Joggers: Christiaan van Niekerk & me
This Saturday morning I was in Cape Town and decided to start the day properly... We started at the Lion's Head parking lot and took the single track towards Signal Hill. At Signal Hill we stopped for a breath while admiring Green Point stadium and then headed back towards Lion's Head. We were unfortunately pressed for time, so we only went half way up Lion's Head. The views were spectacular... the photographs tell the full story!
