Botmaskop to Jonkershoek Trail Run

Our trail grading: BROWN 9B
Distance: 15km
Extremeness: Tough climb, off trail and technical single tracks
Location: Botmaskop, Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel, Fareed Behardien, Henk Brand & me

This morning I took Fareed (from Leave The Couch) and Henk (from The Secret Adventurer) for an awesome run from my house. Deryck, my standard partner in crime, was also with us. We started with a climb up Botmaskop, but had no viz at the top because of some rain clouds and mist. We then took the narrow ridge towards Pieke, doing a bit of bundu bashing and burned Protea warfare. From the saaltjie we took the quickest single tracks down - top of Canary to the new Red Trail. Awesome run... awesome company.
