Hike - Sunday 3 September

The view from Noordhoek Peak

Right fellow EYB athletes, the last few hikes have been tremendous. HUUUUUGE turnouts, lots of new faces and some memorable views.

We've itching to get the EYB athletes out on the open road and see what we can really do. So this Sunday's is hike is going to push the boundaries a little.

The route is going to take us from Constantia Neck, up over the Vlakenberg, past Elephants Knee and up to the summit of the Constantiaberg at 928m above sea level, spectacular views here in all directions, where we will stop to zuuuooooomf a few cup cakes in celebration of Caro's birthday.

From the summit of the Constantiaberg we will then descend to the no less picturesque Noordhoek Peak, before making our way back to the Blackburn Kloof and the final descent to the car park at the Chapman's Peak toll plaza, approximately 1.5km's from Chapman's Peak Hotel.

This non-circular route will have to involve leaving cars at the Chapman's Peak toll plaza. We suggest that we all meet at the plaza at 8:15 sharp, then leave enough cars there and take the rest up to Constantia Neck car park.

Due to the length of this hike we really need to be punctual and have cars sorted and be on the mountain by 9am, so please keep that in mind.

It is estimated that this hike will take around 4.5 to 5hrs.

As far as I can see four legged athletes are welcome

With that in mind, the PHV (Post Hike Vibe) will at Dunes in Hout Bay where four legged athlete's are welcome outside.

The weather for Sunday is looking as if it could be a little cloudy and perhaps windy. We will still be a go, baring a monster storm.

Meet: 8:15 Chapman's Peak toll plaza or 8:45 Constantia Neck with lift organised!

Bring: Plenty of fluids. Warm top, something to eat, fruit sweets, sandwich etc and if your name is a C a C a CFT a CFT, then cupcakes for Caro!

Four legged athletes: All welcome, even a-Jenna jenna jenna jenna is making an appearance.

Post hike vibe: Dunes

Awesome, hope the weather plays it's part.

See you all on Sunday!!!
