Stellenbosch Mountain Trail Run

Our trail grading: BROWN 7C
Distance: 14.93km
Extremeness: Technical single track and tough climb
Location: Stellenbosch Mountain, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Only me

This Saturday I decided to complete my Stellenbosch Mountain challenge and go all the way to the top. I started from my house and climbed all the way to the top in about 1h45. I took a breather and called Riana when I got to the exact spot where Riana and I got engaged. What a beautiful spot! Five minutes later all planning of a fast descent was screwed when I lost concentration and sprained my ankle badly. Needless to say the super technical single track downward was not easy. It was still an awesome extreme jog, but I will have do a proper down run another day!
