Facebook Feedback Fridays: Your favourite running trails
Born and bred in the Mother city, Leilah lives an average-Jane life in the quiet side of Cape Town suburbia. Her favourite things to do in Cape Town include getting sand in her Havaianas on the beach, and watching the bright city lights on Long Street at night.
Leilah heads up the Content Marketing team at iProspect, so naturally is addicted to all things digital. She is an avid Instagramer who "belongs" to the Igers Cape Town community, and collects memories of her city adventures (instameets) for her Instagram feed, as well as the feed of Cape Town Tourism.
"Instagram makes me see the world through different eyes," she says, yet insists she is not a hipster.
Keeping fit is such a chore right? I have to admit my love for delicious food outweighs my love for exercising. But with these top suggested running trails in Cape Town, even I can’t resist getting my pink running shoes on and hitting the road. Summer means lots of glorious blessings: the sun rises earlier, the days are warmer and the sun sets later - all the more reason to trade your hour on the treadmill at the gym for an hour running these scenic trails in the Mother City.
This week we asked our fans on Facebook where their favourite running spots are – here’s what they had to say:
Irma Spies: Tygerberg Heuwels
Leani Jansen van Vuuren: Pipe track, above Camps Bay & Sea Point promenade!
Mark Roberts Contour Path
Mohamed Hamdy Taher Kirstenbosch
Run Cape Town: Silvermine Reserve, as well as the route from Constantia Nek to Hout Bay via Vlakkenberg - SO BEAUTIFUL!
