2013 Tsiba Eden Wine Farm Trail Series: Merendal

So somewhere between all the torrential rain that we’ve been having, there appeared a small gap of sunshine that allowed me to take part in this very pleasant and scenic trail run.
I’ve been out of running action for a while thanks to a fairly serious shin splints injury, but am back on the slow road to recovery.
For those who haven’t done a trail run before – the Tsiba Eden trail series is the perfect introduction to the sport (as it was mine after many years of road running). Each month they organize an informal trail run on a wine farm somewhere in the western cape. There are no entry requirements or limitations, and all the proceeds go to a good cause.

Here you’ll find a link to last years event report, as well as other Tsiba events I’ve attended.

… and if that wasn’t enough, here’s some visuals of the day’s run:
