I went running on Saturday morning on Chapman’s Peak with my mom. WOW, I wish I had done this sooner. What an amazing run!!With my mom visiting for the week I’ve been showing off all the rad routes I get to run around Cape Town – making her sufficiently jealous – but this I think put the cherry on the top…
We parked in Hout Bay at around 7am with the road still in the shadow of the mountain. It was cool and windless with the sea glassy and clear. There were a few other runners out and some cyclists (this always adds to the view) but hardly any cars yet, so no spluttering on exhaust fumes.
We ran to Noordhoek and back and it took us around 2 hours. The only things you need to watch out for are the reflectors in the road when gazing at the scenery!!
I’ll be out there again next weekend for sure!!
