Jonkershoek Western Loop Trail Run

Extremeness: Tough climb and some off-road
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa

Today was our first day back in Jonkershoek after 3 months of running other trails. Again we confirmed that there is no place like home! We did the standard Western Loop and it is still devastating to see what the fire has done. The single track at the end of our standard loop was completely destroyed by the fire... we had to do some hill sliding and then returned to the gate via jeep tracks.

More destroyed landscape

Water that taste amazing!

Some sun

More epicness

The fire hut did not survive the fire
