Botmaskop Jonkershoek Loop Trail Run

Our trail grading: GREEN 7B
Distance: 25km
Extremeness: Tough climb and technical single track
Location: Botmaskop & Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Only me

This morning I did an epic solo loop! I started at my house and after quickly jogging into the Spar for Energy drinks and bars I headed up Botmaskop. I started nice and slow and from Botmaskop headed into Jonkershoek on top of the mountain. I was accompanied by a troop of baboons for a couple of kilometres. I reached the Saddle in just over two hours and then headed down to the Jonkershoek gate. My family decided to pay me a visit and I did a loop or two with my son on the kiddie single track before heading home. The good news is, it feels like I'm getting stronger!
