Raubenheimer Doubles

E-mail Print PDF
Interesting question posed by Mark Groch on the Baviaans Run Twitter platform after completing his 7th Baviaanskloof Trail Run.
"How many #raubeheimerdoubles? @RhodesTrailRun @BaviaansRun"
Mark created a super collage which he posted with his question.
There were five who completed the 'Raubenheimer Double' in 2018, completing the Rhodes Trail Run as well as the Baviaanskloof Trail Run.
In addition to Mark there was Alicia Grobler, Benita Joubert, Anthony Bernard and Gerhard Vosloo.
  Rhodes Time Baviaans Time Combined Time
Benita Joubert 8:53:42 2:43:48 11:37:30
Mark Groch 8:40:42 3:18:36 11:59:18

Thanks to Snow Report SA   Walkerbouts becomes the third spot in our district to have a 24/7 'snow cam'. To see what the weather is doing, a quick squizz is now only a click away.


The other 'snow cams' are at Tiffindell under Ben MacDhui and at Mountain Shadows on Barkly Pass.
