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: Technical single track and fairly tough climb
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Only me
This morning I was alone in Jonkershoek - accept for a number of mountain bikers. I started will all the sections of the Canary TB trail and then climbed to where the turn-off to the "saaltjie" is. After the 450m of altitude gain, and passing a couple of suffering cyclist, I headed down via the standard Eastern Loop Jeep tracks. The weather was perfect for trail running, but not so favourable for taking photos.
