Jonkershoek Eastern Loop Trail Run
Extremeness: Technical single track, heat and wind!
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me
On Saturday it was time to do a longer run and Deryck and I decided on our classic Eastern Loop in Jonkershoek. We started on section one of Canary and then linked to the old corkscrew trail. We climbed all the way to the top contour below Pieke and then linked to the Never Ending trail for the descent. The wind was super strong and almost twice I was blown off the mountain. The 19km took ALL of my energy, but it was worth it!
