.WHAT RACE ARE YOU RUNNING?RUNNING THE RACE OF ADVENTURE

Cederberg – 10-13 August 2014

A few nights ‘in the berg’ proved to be more than just a few nights, but rather a full on adventure of some great outdoor exploring and pushing the limits…a bit!

 

Staying in the Peerboom Hut just south of Algeria, proved to be a great ‘base camp’ from which we could explore the surrounding mountains.

Due to the vast trails in the Cederberg we had to be quite selective in what we chose to do – the first being somewhat of a warm up of a 5km up and down the hillside to the infamous Uitkyk Pass.

We decided to do a 20km circular loop the next day in and around the peaks just above Algeria campsite – just a great day out with a backpack, some munchies, warm clothes, a mini First Aid kit, and a camera to tell a Tale…

The scenery was incredible – amazing rock formations everywhere.

What transpired next was somewhat of a personal embarrassment: we ended up doing 30km after getting lost – with a map and GPS! We realised we had gone too far after coming across and passing what is known as Crystal Pool:

From here on back it was about getting back on track – literally! Here is the remainder of our Cederberg Tale:
