Signal Hill (65&100km)

04:40-05:50am. It will be dark and an opportunity to see the full field within 50 mins of each other after 10km. The steady stream of runners coming across from Lions Head in the near dark will provide an amazing light show. To catch the runners before this point there is also the option to first go to Lions Head trail head or the Karmat on Signal Hill before the runners arrive.

05:50-08:30am Note this station has moved out of the Car Park to the grass embankment which leads to the Pipe Track. This will be a major refeulling station in the race as runners embark on the biggest climb of the day to reach the top of Table Mountain and continue onward for a full traverse of the iconic mountain.

Llandudno (100km)

08:30-13:45 One of Cape Town's best beaches signifies the part of the race where it starts to get tough, so a good support crew is essential. The sections ahead of them are really awesome but knowing that the Suther Peak climb awaits can be a dampener on an already slightly weary runner. Sandy bay is also an alternative viewing point area where the runners then head off along the coast. (Use this Aid Station instead of Constantia Nek).

10:30am-18:00pm 59km into in the 100km race, after what is one of the toughest sections of the route albeit on "fresh legs" The Suther Peak climb and the descent of Karbonkleberg are notorious for making a strong runner weak quickly. Leaders are expected here by 9:30am and the back of the field at 17:30-18:00. The time gap shows how hard this section is.

09:00am (65km)- 22:00pm, (first 100km 11:30am) A unique, easily accessed and quiet station deep in one of Constantia's amazing greenbelts. After this point runners reach the Klaasenbosch Greenbelt on route to Cecilia forest and the Eastern Contour path. Your 100km runners have covered 76km and they are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's usually a hot section and relief in the forests lie a few kilometres away.
