The 3rd and 4th October are the weekend of the 75km, non stop hike in aid of the SPCA.
There are 12 walkers, completing the entire distance.
We will begin at Cape Point at 9am on the Saturday morning. The first 14 km will be straight through Cape Point, to the entrance gate. The next 20km, we will follow the main road, through Simons Town, and Fish Hoek to Kalk Bay. Although all along the road, this is a beautiful walk, alongside the coast all the way.
From here into the mountain. From Kalk Bay, we go up the Oukraal Path, and over into Silvermine. Accross Ou Kaapse Weg, and into Silvermine North. Around the side of Constantiaberg, over Vlakkenberg and onto Constantia Nek. (we think we should be here about 4am)
The final 16km, will take us from Constantia Nek, up the mountain, past the dams along Smuts Track to Maclears Beacon. (the highest point on Table Mountain) The last section is the toughest. Down Platteklip gorge. For those familiar with this route, you will know we are going to suffer getting our tired legs down that “unrelenting staircase”
We will be joined at various points along the way, by a variety of dogs and wellwishers. All support is very welcome.
We finish at the bottom of Platteklip.
