FAMM - 26th October

FAMM is set to take a slight detour from our majestic mountains down to the ocean where a route of beauty, sand and sea awaits all Athletes. We are blessed with the best of both worlds in this awesome city so why not take advantage of this and head down to the beach for a morning run with a difference!

What date: Friday, 26th October

What Route: We will start from the Primi Piatti side of Camps Bay beach and jog along the water's edge before hopping over onto Glen beach and along this surfers paradise, before we head up the stairs and make a quick dash along the tar to La Med. Here we will wind our way through the legendary La Med, through the back streets of Clifton and down onto 4th Beach where white sand and 1st class beaches await our footprints. We will jog along here before attacking the steps back up onto the tar and along to the Bantry Benches for some view time. From here its an easy "jog it in" along the tar back down onto Camps Beach where the ocean awaits our energized bodies!

What time: 5:45am sharp...ready to footprint the beach by 6am. Give yourself enough time to wind your way over from the "burbs".

Where do I park: Camps Bay, Victoria Rd on the beachfront outside the Caltex Garage and Nandos.

FLA'S: Dogs, leads and poop bags are more than welcome!

What to bring: For those of you are are brave enough to take a dip in the ocean afterwards, bring your costumes and a towel...we encourage Baywatch colours!

Post Hike Vibe: We will leave this up to spontaneity

AWESOME way to start your weekend on a happy note, so grab your takkies and your cozzie and get ready to EARN YOUR WEEKEND!!!

Kleinplaas Dam - Sunday, 07th October!!


This Sunday sees a return to a very gentle walk above Simon's Town to the Kleinplaas Dam. The route is expected to take around two and a half hours. It is a circular route that will bring us back to our cars via the Brooklands Community Ruins.

How to get there: Take the coastal road towards Cape Point and turn right just before you get into Simon's Town, heading up towards Red Hill. Once on the top, there are a cluster of houses called Pinehaven, turn right and follow the road for approximately 3km's to an old farm house, park 50m before this on the left.

Time: 9:20am meet, 9:30am start!!

Weather: The weather is looking as if it should be clearing by Sunday with temperatures creeping into the twenties and CLEAR.

Post hike vibe: There are a number of places along the way home to stop for a bite to eat or a beer. Polana, Brass Bell or The Quaterdeck in Simon's Town for breakfast, so no doubt we'll be pulling into one of them after.

This is definately a dog-friendly walk, so bring along all the pooches you can find!!!

See everyone on Sunday!!
