Weekend Wanderings – 7th & 8th September

WE HAVE OPENED A SHOP OPPOSITE MIDMAR DAM GATES CALLED SOMETHING USED, TRADING IN BEAUTIFUL USED FURNITURE, CANNA OILS, SOME SPORTS GOODS, VISIT US!!

We are into spring, the weather has turned unpredictable, but that doesn’t stop us from adventure, rain or shine. Canna oils and topical salves have had much press and very positive reviews about the ability to help with chronic pain management, skin problems, diabetes management, seizures, Parkinson’s, cancer and many other stress and anxiety related issues including helping sufferers of Alzheimers, even menopause issues!! Go onto the web and decide for yourself, you can also contact me via the website for more information and availability, it is affordable and the products are lab tested and have specific concentrations to allow for set dosages according to your needs.

On to the racing for the weekend. Weather has started a bit cold, but hopefully will cheer up.

Lynnford Trail – All weekend (Ixopo) http://www.roag.co.za/eventinfo.aspx?EventID=2388

Saturday there is a choice of 65 km ULTRA (R830), 30 km (R430) and 15 km (R230) as the main races, then Sunday choice of 15 km (R230), 8 km (R160) and 4 km (R100). Fantastic area to run in, it is a point to point race so need to get there early to catch the bus to the start, a bit pricy, but they have CHAMPAGNE at the water tables. There is accommodation nearby, camping for those more attuned to nature, but book beforehand.

Go Durban MTB 100 – Sunday 8th (Giba Gorge) http://www.roag.co.za/eventinfo.aspx?EventID=2924

Mix of races starting from Giba Gorge, Inanda heading out towards Inanda and surrounds. 100 km race (R400) starts at Giba and heads out to Inanda, back through Durban green corridors and finishing at Blue Lagoon, shuttle required either way. The 50 km (R270) starts at Inanda and the 20 km (R200) starts at Kwadebeka Bike Park. This looks like fun, hopefully the rain stays away. This would be my pick for the weekend.

Queensburgh Harriers Mineshaft – Sunday 8th (Queensburgh) https://runningraces.co.za/durban/queensburgh-mineshaft/

Road race, should be quick!!

Wild Series Mont Aux Sources – Friday to Saturday (Berg) https://kzntrailrunning.co.za/races/the-wildseries-mont-aux-sources-challenge/

This is 50 km tough trail running, pre-entry only so if you are reading this you also did not get in, these can get expensive, but maybe worth a try every now and then.

 

Get out there and have a gas, look after yourself using natural products and nutrients. Canna oils also available at Something Used opposite the Midmar Dam gates, coffee machine soon to be installed for runners and riders doing midlands meander, good place to park whilst running in Midmar or riding up through the Caversham area, Tweedie, Currys Post routes, I can give you some routes along district roads.
