Earn your Table Mountain Route

After a successful and inspiring 2006 of FAMM and EYB, the new year calls for athletes to to head back to the mountains, gather their EYB spirit, and take FAMM to new levels of fitness and fame!

Last week saw debutants dominate Lion's Head as an old favourite route was yet again enjoyed by all those who took up the challenge to begin their year of earning. As we continuously look and scout for new off-road running routes in our city, we will head back to a favourite of FAMMS', which provides the Athlete with an early cheeky ascent, a rocky but fynbos filled contour path and of course breathtaking views of our city bowl and beyond. Weather guru is kicking off the weekend with clear skies and sunshine so get your Christmas bellies out of bed and head onto the mountains to start your year of EARNING!

FAMM imprints Table Mountain with EYB spirit

What date: Friday, 19th January 2007

What Route: Platteklip Gorge, along the upper countour path of Table Mountain and back down the tar road to Kloof Nek parking lot. Maximum time is 1 hour with stops.

What time: 5:45am - please try your best to be on time as logistics requires some movement of cars and athletes to get on the mountain by 6am

Where do I park:
All meet at Kloof Nek parking lot, just at the top of Kloof Nek Rd on your left. We will leave most of the cars here and jump in the 2 biggest and make our way to Platteklip Gorge where our legs will be put to the early morning test!

FLA'S: All welcome, no chains or ladders just some narrow contour paths but nothing our Four legged Athletes haven't conquered before!

aims to spread itself in the year to come and will continuously be on the scout for new and challenging morning routes on and around\our city mountains. If anyone would like to share their own routes with us to broaden our choices, please feel free to mail us on as we welcome and suggestions and feedback!

This is a beautiful scenic route with a great VAVT of the city after a gentle jog along the contour path, so we hope to see you up there on Friday to kick start your weekend. If all else fails a little VIDA has been known to give an even harder kick to get the weekend going! See you there ATHLETES!!
