11 – 13 December 2015 Westcoast Beach Run
This event is on December 11, 2015
So, here are the details for the brave few wishing to spend 3 days on the beach, albeit without the cossies and cocktails!
Friday, 11 December at 07h00: leave from Koeberg Power Station parking lot. Run along the beach all the way to Silwerstroomstrand. Total distance: + 32km.
Saturday, 12 December at 07h00: Run from Grotto Bay beach to Yzerfontien beach. Mostly beach all the way. + 24km
Sunday, 13 December at 07h00: Yzerfontein beach to Tsaarsbank, 16-mile beach, West coast National Park, Langebaan. + 30 km. This is 100% beach! There is a picnic area with braai facilities and toilets here. A braai with ice cold refreshments sounds like a plan!
Your attire: old trail shoes (they will get wet), hat (that also covers your neck if you burn easily), water & food ( there is NO access to water or food en route), GoPro (if you have one) , GPS ( if you have one).
We will book accommodation for Friday night and Saturday night in Yzerfontein. We will then shuttle between there and the various start / finish points.
Your lift back on Sunday will need to enter the WC National Park to pick you up. From Cape Town, it is closer to the bottom gate. See the map to Tsaarsbank here: WCNP map
