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!
Location: Helderberg Nature Reserve, Somerset West, South Africa
Joggers: Only me
The idea of this run was to get some distance in Helderberg and do some proper uphill jogging. I started on the Eastern side, next to the Erinvale fence, and worked my way towards the Brown Hiking route. I then explored a few stray routes next to the Lourensford fence - looking if there was maybe a route into Lourensford Farm. When I ran into a bramble bush I turned around. I then got onto the normal circle route going up, firstly crossing over with the Black hiking route, and then running all the way up to Disa Kloof. I jogged most of the route (some of it goat-style), but I was pretty chuffed with my efforts!
