Vaalkop Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 6A
Distance: 10km
Extremeness: Off-road and a small climb
Location: Keiskie Farm, Calvinia, South Africa
Joggers: Only me

I headed up the road to Vaalkop this afternoon. I've done this route only once before, but it all came back to me as I was climbing the small hill with the awesome view. I decided to do a 10km run before my recovery/hiking day tomorrow. When I got to the top of Vaalkop I as was on 4.6km and did another 400m of off-road to make sure I get to 10km. This is a tough but satisfying route.
