Newlands Regular Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 4B
Distance: 11km
Extremeness: Tough climb & technical single track
Location: Newlands Forest, Cape Town, South Africa
Joggers: Francois du Toit & me

We decided to do the new Wednesday regular anti-clockwise. This makes the climb a lot tougher and we hit the contour single track after 3km. When we reached the jeep track on the other side we decided to climb further to the famous Block House. The wind was pumping and it is official - counter-clockwise is tougher! We enjoyed the downhill and took it easy jogging down towards our car...
