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: Technical single track & extreme weather
Location: Lebanon MTB Trail, Elgin Valley, Grabouw, South Africa
Joggers: Only me
On Saturday I started my jog in extremely cold weather and a small hail storm. I jogged from Old Mac Daddy and after about 500m linked to the Red Lebanon MTB route. I followed the route to the tee and there are truly magnificent stretches of single track over hills, through forests and around dams. After about 22km I reached the cottage from where the Lebanon trail officially starts. Riana picked me up for lunch on the Elgin Valley road.
