Leave the Couch Together 05: Constantia Nek 22 October 2016
We return to our trail roots (routes lol) this weekend when we explore Constantia Nek and it’s surrounds at the next Leave The Couch Together with Totalsports this Saturday the 22nd of October at 6:30am. Here are the details…
Grab your trail shoes and join Team LTC at our start from the Constantia Nek parking lot for a proper adventure!
We’ll warm up on easy jeep track as we run towards Cecilia Forest. Just before we hit Kirstenbosch Gardens, we’ll turn up towards Rooikat Ravine where you will climb a quad-busting set of steps that will have you swearing at Fareed before the top 🙂 The suffering will be worth it as the route leads us straight to the Cecilia Waterfall – one of the most beautiful areas on the slopes of Table Mountain.
Another epic weekend in the bag. This pic was from the recce @fireboict and I did of the next #LTCTogether with @totalsports_sa at Constantia Nek. There is going to be a tough climb, but you’ll be rewarded for all your suffering when you reach the Cecelia Waterfall. Totally worth it. #leavethecouch #TotalsportsRun
From there it will be a fast descent down to the Contour Path with a few tricky, but really fun sections before we join up to the jeep track taking us back to the start.
It’s got a bit of everything and is going to be a mission to remember 🙂
Please make sure that you arrive early as Constantia Nek is a popular spot for trail running and there will be other groups meeting on the morning. Aim to arrive early so that you can find a parking and we can leave promptly at 6:30am after the delivery of the run briefing. We should complete our run by 8am to allow time to chat and socialize afterwards. Although there are a few streams along the way which you can drink from, it is advised to that you are self-sufficient on the run and to bring some water in case you get thirsty.
In the spirit of Leave the Couch Together, the run is:
- Aimed at beginners;
- About getting outside and enjoying the run;
- A pack run and no-one gets left behind, and
- Focused on adventure in a chilled out space
As previously mentioned, we will be limiting the numbers to 40 participants to ensure that everyone is safe and has the best experience possible. Complete the registration form below to secure your place:
