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: Lots of ups and downs & technical single track
Location: Newlands Forest, Cape Town, South Africa
Joggers: Francois du Toit, Ryan Goosen & me
Today we alternated from our regular Wednesday route and Ryan showed us the beautiful Silvertree Hiking Route. We started in Newlands Forest and headed towards Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The route also passes the ruins of the Lady Anne Barnard's Cottage. The route turns inside the Botanical Gardens and is fairly challenging given all the ups and downs.
