TRAIL RUNNING NEWSLETTER – APRIL 2017

Trail Lovers! Thank you for all your patience while I get into the groove of things as the CMC trail captain! With the trail season fast approaching, I am excited about all the adventures that lie ahead!

Combining the CMC and Durbac trail calendar has been amazing in getting more runners on the trails – which leads to safer running and much more fun!! Wednesday CMC trail runs will continue at Meerendal, Altydgedacht, Bellville Golf Course and Bloemendal.

Very important

Please remember your headlights!! It is getting darker on the trails!

New starting time: 17:45

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce and thank my wonderful team who is going to assist me in keeping all the runners safely on the right track during Wednesday runs:

  • Bellville Golf Course - Mark Stokell
  • Meerendal Wine Estate - Marilette Brown & Anton Franchi
  • Altydgedacht Wine Estate - Karin Gerber & Neil Broers
  • Bloemendal Wine Estate - Pauline Wilkinson & Anton Franchi

Please refer to the CMC Trail running FB group to download the trail run schedule as well as keeping an eye on the events posted. A BIG thank you to Conrad Meier for working out the calendar - you have been an immense help!
