Cradock Peak Trail Run

Our trail grading: BROWN 7C
Distance: 18.2km
Extremeness: Decent climb and technical single track
Location: Outeniqua Mountains, George, South Africa
Joggers: Bert van der Westhuizen, Chantel Nienaber, Jacques Mouton, a few other guys & me

I had the privilege to be invite by Jacques Mouton to do Cradock Peak with him and 6 other trail runners this morning. We started our extreme jog at Witfontein (at 5am) with about 1.5km of jeep track. The rest was awesome Outeniqua single track all the way to the Cradock Peak. The scenery was truly spectacular and the altitude gain a decent 1300m!
