I’ve been talking about thinking about starting to trail run for ages and on Sunday I decided to stop talking about thinking and actually just DO…
Montrail and CapeStorm have a trail running series which is coming to the Western Cape in July. It consists of 4 runs of which you can choose to do the long (12 – 13km) or short (5-6km) routes, in different locations ranging from Durbanville Hills to Groot Constantia.
I had heard about this trail series from friends of mine and before the Comrades it was a lovely plump carrot on a stick to look forward to – with the promise of a change of scenery, some new faces and hopefully a rekindling of my motivation to run (although my lack of motivation could be due to the horrid weather we are having at the moment).
Have a look at the race details and if you are in the Cape area sign up, would be great to meet you!
