Weekend Wanderings – 6th & 7th April

If you are feeling like the year is going ahead too fast, it is!! But catch up with it, exercise and eat healthy, microgreens and roasted seeds are a great way to spruce up those tired evening meals, get some through contacting me on 0848405471, through the website or via facebook through BuyLocal, guaranteed fresh.

This weekend, not much in the way of mountain biking on offer around here, but there are trail runs and a marathon or 2.

Dolphin Coast MTB Bash – Sun 7th (Blythedale) devillierscycling@mweb.co.za

I do not know much about this, maybe new on the calendar, but there are contact details for those that are still able to travel these distance with the new fuel prices.

The Bushman Trails – Fri to Sunday 7th (Wagensdrift Dam) https://kzntrailrunning.co.za/races/the-bushmans-trail/

THIS IS GREAT RUNNING, selection of distances and you can go the whole weekend (and camp there if you have arctic gear), or run only Saturday or only Sunday. There is a warm up on Friday night for those staying over, then the runs start flowing. 10km, 20 km on Saturday and 10 km(R105) and 20 km (R145) and 30 km (R220)available on the Sunday. There are 5 km jogs also on both days, great opportunity to see if your legs will handle a full weekend, with the bail out option of course.

Durban City Marathon – Sun 7th (Durban – SURPRISE) https://www.runnersguide.co.za/pages/calendar/races_in_sa/RacesInSA.aspx?RaceNo=1500058276

Good road race, many people, not sure they will take late entries so please check. Any of these events are good, but the City coffers are running dry, being bled by tender corruption and cadre favouritism and many of these races are suffering as a result, hope this will not be one of them. If you get there, have a gas and a swim in the sea, it is still at about 23 degrees.

Arthur Creswell Memorial – 7th (Bergville)

This is a 52 km main race, looks like a joll for those who are into LOOOONG distance.

Whatever you do out there, do it well, many park runs as usual on Saturday. Sorry, late for tennis, got to go.
