A fairly hilly stage in company of Peter (running company) and Ivan (crew). Very enjoyable and a good pace set by Peter - originally from Stuttgard in Germany w. many years of ultrarunning done, and very considerate crewing by Ivan, finding shaded spots for quick stops to get a drink of water on this humid day.
After the run I was accomodated free of charge at the Boardwalk Lodge (www.boardwalklodge.co.za) at Wilderness Bay - a 4 star luxury resort w. large wooden chalets overlooking the breaking waves down at the beach and the green nature park & mountains behind !
... Yes, the hospitality here in South Africa is Amazing !! :-)
