While the opportunity to time travel is not (yet) available to us, the opportunity to feel as though you have traveled back in time and to enjoy an Olde Worlde experience on board an authentic vintage steam train is,

and it’s something that should be on everyone’s bucket list.

The Ceres Steam Train, run by the Ceres Rail Company, offers a unique and family friendly outing that will see passengers sitting back in comfort whilst traveling through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Witzenberg region. The departure point for the trip is opposite the Royal Cape Yacht Club situated in Table Bay Harbour, right next to the V&A Waterfront.

History behind the Ceres Rail and the trains that make it all possible

The Ceres railway track, on which the Ceres Steam Train runs, was originally built in 1910, with construction being completed in 1912. After many years of active service it was later closed, only to then be reopened in 2012.

“Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) stopped operating rail lines such as the Ceres railway in the 1990’s because they were not profitable,” explains James Vos, Shadow Minister of Tourism and the member of Parliament for Witzenberg (including the town of Ceres). “However, because branch lines are a vital link with the rural areas, partnerships between public and private enterprise are now exploring the re-commissioning of some of these branch lines.”

Ceres Rail, one of only two steam train operators in the Western Cape, and one of only a handful in the whole of South Africa, run three steam trains – Jessica, Bailey and the Red Devil. Jessica, as the oldest of the trio, was manufactured in England in 1948, whilst the famous Red Devil is a one-of-a-kind South African built train manufactured in 1981.

Part of the Ceres Rail Company’s mission is to help preserve and promote South African Rail Heritage, which involves restoring and refurbishing old locomotives and coaches. The Ceres Rail trains are comfortable and include a dining cart which served on the Blue Train in 1935.

The Current Ceres Steam Train Experience
Lovers of train travel, vintage enthusiasts, sightseers, families, friends, and in general anyone looking for a wonderful day out of the city that is memorable, unique and fun will love a trip on theCeres Steam Train.

The train departs from the V&A Waterfront precinct and steams its way past vineyards, orchards, olive groves, mountains, wheat and canola fields. There’s even a bit of game viewing on offer whilst on board. Passengers can sit back, relax, spend time admiring the view, enjoy refreshments from the dining cart and leave all modern day problems behind whilst heading towards their destination in Ceres.

The picturesque Ceres valley is not only the origin of some of South Africa’s best fruit and wine products, but also one of the top tourism destinations in the country – and it is not hard to see why, with its breath-taking scenery, exciting activities (including cherry picking in summer and snowy visits in winter), and a plethora of indigenous fynbos.

Minister Vos says that the Ceres Steam Train, in addition to offering a great tourism experience in one of the most picturesque valleys of our province also represents the rebirth of our rail transport system – something which is crucial in South Africa. “Not only will it pave the way for economic growth, it also reduces the number of trucks on the roads, decreasing emission and fuel costs and improving safety. Many small town economies rely on tourism infrastructure to thrive and grow economic opportunities. Therefore this steam train service increases the tourism potential of the Witzenberg district,” explains Minister Vos.

Details at a glance:

The Ceres Steam Train runs every second weekend and the costs per one way trip are as follows:

  • Adults 13y+ – R400pp
  • Children 2y-12y – R250pp

Paarl will host South Africa’s first FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun, the world’s biggest cross-country obstacle race, on Saturday 1 October 2016. Strongman This is the first time this event, known as the ‘strongest race of all time’ will be held outside of Europe.

This rapidly growing cross-country-obstacle-race set on a long distance track including swimming, climbing and crawling obstacles.  Paarl Rock, the country’s largest recorded mass of granite and the picturesque Berg River are the location, and will add to the challenge and scenic beauty for this one-of-a-kind event.

Ferdinand Rabie, winner of the first Big Brother SA in 2002, has been awarded the three-year license to bring this popular event to South Africa.

“Last year, 12 FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun events took place throughout Europe, with over 80 000 participants and I was extremely fortunate to participate in the event in Nuremberg earlier this year,” said Rabie.

“This is known as the strongest race of all time, and after participating, I know why.  I had the most fun I have had in a long time wading through mud and swimming through streams in the biggest obstacles.

“Considered the ultimate adrenaline adventure and famous for its gigantic obstacles, we are expecting the first South African event to be a sell-out.”

“We spent two weeks with the European organisers to ensure that our race follows European standards,” he added.

“The FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun has created a new running category and obstacle adventure racing is the fastest growing sport for women.  Runners can enter as individuals or teams, grab your moment, dress up, it is the ultimate adrenalin kick,” said Julie-Ann van Niekerk, Clippasales, distributors of Fisherman’s Friend.

“We are excited to be extending this race outside of Europe, and that teams that have competed in Europe will be coming to South Africa,” says Ingo Pauly, International FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun Project Team.

There are three distances: 8km with 12 obstacles, 14km with 20 obstacles and 21km with 25 obstacles.  The South African event is the first to offer school learners the opportunity to participate in the 8km race.

Entrance is limited to 5000 over the three race distances. All participants will receive a T-shirt and medal and the overall male and female winners in the 21km race get to compete in the 10th anniversary of FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun 2017 in Germany.

To add to the entertainment of the weekend, Prime Circle will head the line-up to the Build Courage event concert on Friday 30 September.  Tickets are R160 for adults and R80 for children under 13 and available on itickets.

There is plenty of fun for the whole family as well as a separate kids event for ages 4-12, which takes place between 11:30 – 13:30 on Saturday.

 

At sunrise every first Saturday in November a crowd of runners assembles on Long Street in Cape Town for  for the start of a 50-kilometre race that will see them huffing-and-puffing up (and down) the three peaks surrounding the Cape Town City Bowl. Devil’s Peak, Maclear’s Beacon on Table Mountain and Lion’s Head are their targets as they take on the 19th Three Peaks Challenge in Association with K-Way.

The tradition of the Three Peaks Challenge was initiated in 1897 when Carl Wilhelm Schneeberger first completed a route that ascended and descended Cape Town’s three peaks, returning to the city after each one.

The Challenge was revived by Don Hartley in 1997 to commemorate CW Schneeberger’s achievement 100 years earlier and thus the annual tradition of the Three Peaks Challenge began.

“Three Peaks is a tradition that is incredibly close to my heart,” says race organiser Gavin Snell. He’s the only person to have completed all 18 editions of this event.

“It is a wonderful mental and physical challenge, but, more than that, is a great story with its rich history, tradition and people.”

Participants that stand out include Brian Key, who will be running for the 13th time. At 76 years young, Key placed in the Top 30 last year with a credible time of 7:55:59.  He turns 77 only two weeks after this year’s race.

“After a number of years of effort to find a member of the Schneeberger family, we’re delighted that Shaun Schneeberger, a great-grandson of the pioneer CW Schneeberger, will be taking part this year,” says Snell.

On the competitive side of the event the race welcomes back last year’s winner Martin Kleynhans and three-time winner and former record holder Andrew Hagen. Hagen is one of only two men – the other being AJ Calitz – to have run under five hours. Nic De Beer is in the starting line-up. Recovered from injuries, de Beer has indicated that he is using the event as part of his comeback to the trail-running scene.

Undisputed women’s favourite is Katya Soggott. She has won the last three consecutive events with unbelievably consistent winning times of 6:15:27,  6:15:02 (women’s record) and 6:15:44!

“There is something very special about the day and many people who enter thinking that they just want to do one to tick it off on their bucket list find themselves coming back for more,” says Snell.

“Besides taking place on the iconic Table Mountain, it is an interesting blend of city and mountain and has a camaraderie that can only be experienced by those who are fortunate enough to take part.”

Five South African trail runners, including K-Way runner Lucky Miya, competed in Switzerland’s Zermatt Marathon on Saturday. Host to the 2015 WMRA Long Distance Mountain Running Championships, our runners were up against the best runners from 11 other countries.

Lucky Miya after Zermatt Marathon

The Zermatt Marathon begins in a river valley and climbs steadily upwards. “It was an easy race from the start as we mostly ran on tar and I felt good and strong,” says Miya of this first section of the race. At halfway, in the town of Zermatt, a strong group of front runners came through within minutes of each other. Miya and fellow South African Johardt van Heerden were in this group together with Tommaso Vaccina, the Italian runner who

would go on to win the race. Miya, running with Vaccina, were together in 12th place having covered the first 21 kilometres in a fast-paced 1 hour 19 minutes.

From Zermatt, the runners climbed upwards on winding forested single track, which revealed spectacular views of the Matterhorn. On this section they gained another 650 metres of altitude over 11 kilometres. Vaccina dropped both Miya and Van Heerden to move up into fourth place by the Sunnegga checkpoint (32.5km). “After Sunnegga athletes where treated with a brutal climb up the valley to a beautiful dam and probably the only ‘flat’ section on the route, although flat is a very relative word in the Swiss Alps,” says Brett Nattrass. He went over with the team to report on the race and photograph the South African runners.

The final section was gruelling – a climb of 360 metres over the last three kilometres to Riffelberg. “This climb was the sting in the tail,” says Nattrass. “Even the top athletes had to push their hands on their knees to give them an extra boost.”

Miya really felt the heat as he hit the big climb a few kilometres out of Zermatt. “It broke me in pieces and the going was really tough. I had no choice but to drag myself to the finish. This was one of those toughest days of racing but it was worth it at the end to have such an incredible experience,” he says. Miya finished in 46th place overall in a time of  3 hours 38 minutes for the 42 kilometre course.

Johardt van Heerden was the highest placed South African man in 23rd place (3:24:52), while Megan Mackenzie lead the South African woman to finish in 32nd place (4:15:58). Although Vaccina ran a well-paced race to win (3:03:51), he was unable to beat the course record of 2:55:04 (Michieka Maticha). In the women’s race, Martina Strähl (Switzerland) set a new women’s course record of 3:21:38.

With his return to the Fish River Canyon Ultra, K-Way athlete AJ Calitz has only one goal: to break the course record. On Saturday Calitz will again run the 100-kilometre route through the famed Fish River Canyon and the clock will be ticking.

The first Fish River Canyon Ultra was first held in 2011 on a route that was approximately 83 kilometres in distance. The course was extended the following year to include the boulder-strewn Day 1 section of the well-known hiking-trail route to make it an even 100 kilometres.

Runners are allowed to plan their own routes through the canyon and they may take short-cuts to bypass lengthy bends in the river. The only prerequisite is that the runners pass through a number of predefined checkpoints. The shortcuts may greatly reduce the total distance of the race but may also cost the runners in time and effort if errors are made.

In August 2012, independently and not during the race, Ryan Sandes made his second attempt at running the classic five-day hiking trail route. His efforts were rewarded with a time of 6 hours 57 minutes.

Last year, Calitz had his first shot at the canyon. He won the race in 8 hours 4 minutes 15 seconds, taking over two hours off previous winning times on the same route.

“Last year I lost a lot of time due to lack of route knowledge; this year I have done my homework and I’ve done a lot more mileage on flat and sandy terrain,” says Calitz.

With his preparation done, Calitz is focused.

“This year I have only one goal: to break the record. The first section of the route will be a warmup for the record attempt. The weather forecast is good and everything else looks perfect to run hard on race day.”

He’s excited to return to the Fish River Canyon. “This is one of the most incredible and beautiful races I have ever done,” he says. “I’m taking my family along this year, so that will be very special.”

The race starts at 05h30 on Saturday morning, an hour before sunrise. Calitz should complete the route in time for lunch.

K-Way athlete Lucky Miya is in Switzerland for the 2015 WMRA Long Distance Mountain Running Championships, which is hosted this year by the Zermatt Marathon in Switzerland. Miya is one of five accomplished trail runners making

Lucky Miya

up the South African contingent.

34-year old Miya, together with teammates Megan Mackenzie, Karine Bezuidenhout, Johardt van Heerden and Thabang Madiba make up Team South Africa. They were selected for the team based on their performances at a selection of South African mountain races held earlier in the year.

This is Miya’s third international race. Last year he competed in the Skyrunning World Champs in France but unfortunately picked up a groin injury near half-way that took him from seventh place to being out of the race. A few months later he ran a superb race at the 21-kilometre Pikes Peak Ascent (Colorado, USA), which hosted last year’s edition of the WMRA Long Distance Mountain Running Championships. Against a competitive and experienced field, Miya placed 19th overall and 4th in his age category.

With recent local wins at the 24-kilometre FNB Platinum Trail Run and the 37km Uitsoek Skymarathon®, Miya is race ready.

The Zermatt Marathon – now in its 14th year – begins in a river valley and climbs steadily upwards, gracing the runners with a breath-taking view of the Matterhorn, which towers over the route. The 42-kilometer race begins in the town of St Niklaus (1116m) and at half-way passes through the town after which the race is named, Zermatt. From here the runners ascend a winding alpine road to finish on Riffelberg (2,585m). Runners are advised to keep a little in the tank for the last stretch; they’ll climb 400 metres over the final few kilometres.

Miya is proudly sponsored by K-Way. The race starts at 08h30. on Saturday, 4 July 2015.

Red Bull LionHeart played out on Saturday on Cape Town’s Lion’s Head where runners faced off against each other in elimination rounds. For the third year in a row,

Calitz The LionHeart

K-Way athlete AJ Calitz  dominated the event to claim a hat trick of LionHeart crowns. He set another new course record of 25.54 in the process.

“LionHeart is one of my favourite races of the year and I always look forward to it,” says Calitz. “When I get to the start line I remember how hard it is. This year was no exception.”

Last year the competitors ran a 3.7-kilometre qualifying circuit in the morning with three elimination rounds in the afternoon. This year runners qualified for the 22 men’s and 11 women’s places by using Strava – a free-for-download GPS route tracking app – in the lead-up to the event, which meant four ascents during the race.

“It makes a difference to race four times, instead of three,” says Calitz. “Luckily, more ascents suits me.”

Fortunately the forecasted rain stayed away on race day, although gusty winds high up on the peak made for cold temperatures and tricky conditions underfoot on the technical and rocky terrain.

LION TAMERS - AJ Cailtz & Landi Greyling

“I had friends and family waiting at the bottom with my warm K-Way jacket, some food and water so that I could keep warm and recover after each heat. My wife, Paulette is an amazing support at these events.”

Calitz had a tough draw, running against Ben Brimble in the first heat and quarterfinal and then against Thabang Madiba in the semifinal and final.

“The first three rounds were a lot faster than last year and we had to push from the word go,” he says.

“I was very nervous before the final as Thabang beat me at Otter in September and he was tipped as the man-to-beat at LionHeart this year. But I stuck to my guns and did what I had planned; to start the climb hard and break early. My plan paid off and I had about a 40-second gap at the top. I managed to keep the gap until the gravel section where Thabang’s leg speed would be a real danger. Gladly the gap was big enough and I could hold him off.”

Calitz ran the final in 25.54, beating Madiba by 21 seconds and again setting a new course record – a time that is almost one-minute faster than his record set in 2013.

Landie Greyling won the women’s race for a second time (33.58), beating Cape Town runner Megan Leslie in the final by only 29 seconds. 16-year old Leslie is the newest member of K-Way’s junior athlete stable.

November is a running mixed bag for record-setting trail runner AJ Calitz. With the high-intensity Red Bull LionHeart event only a week before the ultra-distance Salomon SkyRun, he will be changing gears and attempting to stand on the podium at both events. On road, the equivalent would be a 5,000-metre champion aiming for Comrades glory. Can this K-Way athlete do it?

AJ going for his hat trick

Two years ago Calitz set the pace at the inaugural Red Bull LionHeart, a 4, 4-kilometre duel from the base of Cape Town’s Lion’s Head peak to the top and back down again. Rather than a mass start, the race pits runners against each other in a head-to-head duel. Contenders run again and again, knocking out rivals on their climb up the ranks. Last year Calitz defended his title and beat Thabang Madiba by a mere 11 seconds to claim his second LionHeart title – and setting a new course record (26:46) at the same time.

Calitz has been training on Lion’s Head in preparation for this year’s event, which takes place on Saturday 15 November. When asked how he aims to pull back more seconds from his previous record runs, Calitz replies, “It is always possible to go faster; I am a lot faster on the downs this year”.

He finds the stretch of jeep track to be the hardest section of the course. “Coming down from the top is quite a rush!” he adds.

Calitz is back for the third time. Aside from defending his crown, he is attracted to the race because of its man-on-man heat setup. “Whoever is prepared to hurt the most will win,” he says.

A week later Calitz transitions physically – and mentally – from the fast-paced action of LionHeart to the 100-kilometre mountain race, SkyRun. He has been out in the Witteberg mountains, familiarising himself with the route and the terrain.

“Yes, it helps a lot to be familiar with the course; route knowledge is 60% of the race at this event. To be fair, with racing at altitude and living at sea level I have to manage my expectations.”

Last year the race was cut short due to bad weather. Howling wind, torrential ice-rain and fog brought dangerous conditions to the mountains and Calitz, who was chasing race leader Iain Don-Wauchope, was nearly hypothermic and he withdrew from the race. He learned from this experience.

“Last year was rough,” he says of his first experience at SkyRun. “I learned that I should start slower because it is a long day out. Also, I have to focus on navigation, pacing and nutrition from the start.”

Red Bull LionHeart is on Saturday, 15 November 2014. If you are not able to cheer from the slops of Lion’s Head, the race can be followed online through the Red Bull LionHeart website (www.redbulllionheart.com). The Salomon SkyRun (www.skyrun.co.za) starts before sunrise on Saturday, 22 November 2014 from the town of Lady Grey in the Eastern Cape.  The most up-to-date content during the race will appear on the event organiser’s Facebook page (Pure Adventures).
