Four hours and ten minutes by myself. Actually it wasn’t that bad. I ran the first half hard and paid for it over the last two hours with very woody legs. I even ran up to the Cable Station for the a fore-mentioned Coke which I would have choked on if I hadn’t been desperate (you have to be desperate to climb that hill for a can of cool drink). I suppose they can charge what they like as the tourists with their Euros and Dollars are too thick to notice its three times the price. Sheesh, it didn’t even come with a smile, probably because I snatched it out of her hand faster than you can say ‘hand over that fizzy brown stuff before I collapse and die’.
Route: My flat to Kloof Nek, down The Glen to Camps Bay, past the Twelve Apostles to Oudekraal. Back up to Kloof Nek via The Glen to the top of Signal Hill and then across to the Cable Station and back to my flat
