Where: Simonstown Naval Base
Popularity: +/- 400 (2012)
Route: Takes you over Redhill, which is a steep climb and then towards Cape Point on Plantation Rd. There is a long imperceptible climb after 15km to 20km mark, which will test your patience. A few hills thrown in for the last 5km before coming back to Simonstown could have you cursing…Tougher than Glenryck or Bay to Bay which are the other 30k races on the WPA calendar.
Watch out for Baboons at the water stations.
Organisation: Good, registration point is a bit inconvenient what with the darkness you can’t see where one is going on the narrow path to registration.
