Jonkers Eastern Loop Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 6A
Distance: 14km
Extremeness: Technical single track & tough climb
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me

This morning we started our Jonkers jog fairly early. We complete our standard Jonkers Western loop, even though there were two glitches: (1) After 3km in to the run all my energy was gone and I basically had to complete the run in "survival mode" and (2) someone decided to cut down a number of trees on the "fire house run" single track and we were forced to bundu bash a number of times. All worked out in the end and the run highlighted the fact that I need to pick up my game!

And of course, some epic single track
