JACARANDA RUN – 14 NOV 2020

21km Chairlady’s Route

One of our chairlady’s favorite routes which includes the Jacaranda dripping Clovelly street, and a few little uphills inbetween, to keep the legs honest. It will start on the same route as the 10km, then turn down to Emmarentia dam for a scenic run next to the dam, the park and up towards the top of the park, a run past the historic Louw Geldenhuys farm house, then dropping down into Greenside for an easy descent towards Linden. The last 4km will require you to give it a last little bit of power to the top of 2nd Street and then will spoil you with a lovely view of Northcliff hill and a sprint down to the finish at Linden bowling club. Our very own residents of Linden Community nominated the most beautiful Jacaranda lined streets for inclusion on both routes, so make sure you bring your best selfie pose!

There will be 4 aid stations on this route:

  • 4.5km: WP1 @John Adamson Dr – water, coke, banana and snacks
  • 8.5km & 14km: WP2 & 3 @LouwGeldenhuys Drive, Emmarentia Boat storage – water, coke, banana and snacks. This WP will be passed twice.
  • 18km WP4 @ 9th Street – water and coke

Finish: 21km route will end at our Club house – finisher drink, toilets, and cashbar available.

1Okm Impi’s Route

At Linden Runner our Impi’s group, prefer shorter routes and aspire to longer distances as they get fit. The Captain of the Impi’s, Ma’ Lizie lives on 9th street and you will encounter her ‘Gees’ and true Impi spirit at WP4!

The route will start with with a gentle run down Linden towards John Adamson Drive, fondly referred to as Lovers Lane, due to all the Jacarandas lining this street. Once you reach Rooseveldt Park High School, it will start winding you back via the tranquil streets of Rooseveldt Park and head up towards 9th street for more lush Jacaranda views. After WP4 you will need a last little burst of power to the top of 2nd Street and head home on 3rd street with a lovely view of Northcliff hill and a sprint down to the finish at Linden bowling club. Walkers and easy runners welcome!

There will be 4 aid stations on this route:

  • 4.5km: WP1 @John Adamson Dr – water, coke, banana and snacks
