Tunnel Run

On Saturday I did a very interesting run – there and back again through the Huguenot service tunnel. Of a 20km run, just less than half was in the pitch black tunnel.

We ran on tar, dirt roads, single-track, drainage canals, and of course through the tunnel.

It was a most excellent adventure!

Grape Run

The Grape run will be on October 18.. It is an amazing but tough 21km trail run, and a rare opportunity to run through the Constantia Vineyards (there is also a milder 14k and 5k race). I have completed the past 2 runs, but I will miss this year because I will be on holiday in Greece, which I think is a pretty good excuse!

If you are a runner it is an amazing run to do. Groot Constantia (the oldest wine farm in South Africa) even have wine at the water tables!
