Leave the Couch Together #6: Liesbeek Urban Trail

LTC Together with Totalsports explored the urban trails along the Liesbeek River on the 20th of November. Another 60-plus turnout with a heavy dose of sunshine, smiles and good vibes 🙂

 

Muhammad Abduroaf (Cape Town’s most famous running lawyer 🙂 ) led us on a stunning route from our start just outside the Totalsports Women’s store at Cavendish Square through the suburbs of Newlands and Bishopscourt. The route linked up well known sections of the Two Oceans Half Marathon as well as the UCT 10km races as we crossed the Liesbeek River and weaved our way through the streets uncovering river gardens and some surprising single track in the process.

Riyad from our beloved digital partner lightlyfunky made it!

 

 

Muhammad has been a driver of cleaner and more eco-friendly running events and the course reflected how important it is that we be concious of protecting our city so that we can enjoy these gems.

 

After a hot 7kms we headed back to the start for delicious Racefood and thirst-quenching water.

 

 

Our next run will celebrate the end of the year with a solid test on the 18th of December. We could’ve taken it easy and wound the intensity down, but that just would’nt be the LTC way  😉 Entries will open on the 14th of December.

 

See you at the next Leave the Couch Together with Totalsports!
