Dear Fellow Runners,

For a number of reasons we have decided to discontinue announcing the Sunday Stars runs using this blog.

The announcement as to the following Sunday's run will only be made at the Sunday run each week.

Best wishes

Out the main gate and down to the Alphen Trail, and then along it to Brommersvlie (1st Coke stop), then up the Diep River Trail to Southern Cross Drive (2nd Coke stop), up to Rhodes Drive, find a friend or two, then through the Cecilia Forest to Top Tap (3rd coke stop), along past Chiavelli's old place, right into Monteray Drive, down through Wynberg Park, around the Military Hospital (I believe the hole in the fence is closed?), and up to the Military Hospital Gate (4th coke stop), and then home from there.

Short cutters can go home through the green belts again, and not do the Wynberg Park Section for about 12 kms. The full run is about 16 kms.
