Paarl Mountain Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 3B
Distance: 14.5km
Extremeness: Heat, uphill and rocks...
Location: Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve, Paarl, South Africa
Joggers: Nadia van Heerden, Pieter van Heerden and me

Today I went out for an extreme jog with Superpiet and his better half. We started in Paarl and the first 700m was a hectic climb (with stairs). We then headed to the Paarl rocks – first to the one closes to Paarl and then to the highest one. What an awesome rock! We then headed down and climbed towards the cell phone tower to find a very nice single track descending to the jeep track below. On our way down we stopped for a drink at a small waterfall and then worked on our fitness as we ran down the steep stairs towards town.

Tough uphill to start with
