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: Sand & more sand
Location: Waenshuiskrans, Bredasdorp, South Africa
Joggers: Cobus Potgieter & me
This Saturday we got up early to explore the diverse trails of Waenhuiskrans (aka Arniston). We started on a sandy jeep track that lead us to a dam. From here we had to bundu-bash to reach the "big dunes." We found another jeep track that took us to the coast from where we could see Struisbaai. We continued on the beach, running toward the Arniston beacon. After visiting the beacon we continued on fisherman's trails towards the Arniston Cave. We explored the beautiful low water cave and then headed home.
