High in the blocky ridge of Sneeuberg, Cederberg @arush74 @babs_cole Change of season is the perfect time to make some healthy life changes. Way better than an app that counts your calories, more fun than a watch that counts your daily steps... count your series points instead! Entries for the 2018 Gauteng Winter Trail Series are open, and entries for the Cape  Winter Trail Series open on 24 April. This is where your trail running journey begins
