Route start: Cape Point Light House (right at the very top).

Route end: Green Point Light House.

Direction: A-B route (Towards Table mountain).

Terrain: 90% trail / 10% road. A mixture of minimally beaten, and well established trail.

Technicality: 3/5. No special requirements, however navigation and prior route research is key to getting it correct.

Difficulty: 4/5. Lots of long runnable sections mean you need to keep moving to secure a good time. There's also a fair bit of climbing, so be prepared.

Water: Despite the distance covered, this route offers little natural water opportunities, although there are a few including toilet taps in Simons Town and Constantia Nek.

Description: A fast, captivating a-b style route that requires one to put in the work from the start by getting there early enough. Beautiful coastal flora and beach line crossings of Cape Point, technical single tracks along ridge lines, sea views for days, and enjoyable running over Table Mountain, all the way to Green Point in a race against yourself, the clock and the sunset!
