CRAG icon

I usually join the CRAG (Cape Runners Against Gravity) group for their Wednesday runs. It is a safe way of being able to run on the mountain — and lots of fun besides!

CRAG welcomes newcomers! I was fairly nervous to join the group on their runs, but they really are a friendly bunch, and will be happy to have you along. As a mark of respect, please be well equipped (gear, water, headlamp in winter), and abide by the rules of the mountain in terms of safety and environmental issues.

The routes vary from week to week, starting from places like, Constantia Nek, Newlands Forest, and Kloof Nek. You need to get to the starting point by 17h30 in winter, and 18h00 in summer.

To join the CRAG e-group, send a blank email to:

You will then be able to:

  • receive e-mails of crag runs/walks and other events,
  • join in group discussions, and
  • send in info or news for general circulation.
