It is important to be aware of your safety on your Challenge. As you get fatigued, you are also less likely to be as focused, so it is good to know certain things in advance so you are more aware.
Running and hiking can be very slow moving on Table Mountain so please always take extra food and water with you.
There are a few rivers on Table Mountain but in summer most of these will be dry.
The town of Hout Bay between Peak 7 & 8 is a great place to buy food and water.
Run/hike with a partner and let someone know your route and expected finish time.
Have Wilderness Search and Rescue Number in your phone – 021 937 0300.
Use a tracking app on your phone or carrying a tracking device like a Spot.
Keep in mind where the possible exit points off the mountain are.
Have fun out there but remember it is a big mountain and look after yourself.
Ryan Sandes and 13 Peaks cannot be held responsible for your safety.
