Marloth mountain challenge lite.

Starting one side of the mountain and ending on the other with a 600m net climb.

Pretty much no other decent guys doing the 25, so plan was to see how the top guys in the 50km went out and maybe stick with them (AJ Calitz and Bernard Rukadza etc), but they went out pretty conservatively, so ended up just running on my own out in front.

Felt good for the 1st 1:30 or so, but really felt the climbs after that (don't think I do enough longer runs). So maybe a good thing I didn't have any major competition.

Really stunning route with 95% of it on pretty technical hiking trails, so you never really got a break which was pretty tough. Very happy I didn't have to go any further.

Keen to come do some chilled runs on this mountain sometime.

In Swellendam for Marloth mountain challenge.

Lovely jog into the reserve and up to a nearby waterfall+ back the same way.

Quite a steep climb in the valley, so pretty slow going, but awesome indigenous forest, so got to enjoy it more :)

With Jono and Tom.

From the club, into the forest, along the upper jeep tracks past the old loggers buildings, then up the boardwalks and to the contour path. All the way along towards blockhouse, then down past r.mem and along the fence to the bridge+then club.

Been a while since I've done the 'full' contour path section, forgot how stunning it is!! (Especially with today's weather)

From res, across to Newlands entrance, straight up to the contour path, up Newlands ravine to the saddle, down to the upper contour path and then around to the blockhouse and down across the veld+ through old zoo.

Nice to be out on the mountain :)
